Harish Shankar (born 31 March 1977), is a film director, writer works in Telugu cinema.

Harish Shankar was born on 31 March 1977 in an Agraharam in Dharmapuri (Karim Nagar district and one km away from Godavari river) into a family of orthodox Brahmins. He was brought up in BHEL, Hyderabad right from KG (Kindergarten) to PG (post graduation in MBA). His father has worked as a Telugu master. He used to be an avid reader. His father is also a huge fan of films. He used to watch and take him to the films of Amitab Bachchan and NTR.

BHEL used to have 6 schools. He belonged to Telugu medium. During his +2, there used to be drama companies called ‘Seeta Nilayam’ and ‘Lalitha Kala Mandiram’. He used to act as child artist, supporting actor and main lead till certain age. He learnt about dialogues, modulation, diction, dialect etc from senior BHEL stage artists like Mohan Rao, Bhujanga Rao, Srinivas and Naga Mohan.

Mr. Srinivas, who is an IIM alumnus suggested me that he should go beyond BHEL and try for NSD (National School of Drama). He got trained rigorously for NSD exams and cleared the prelims. The main interview was done by the likes of Girish Karnad and Charu Hassan. They opined that he is hyper and might not suit stage acting as it needs subtle performance. They asked him to go for films as his style suits movies. He have a lot of fascination towards NSD because it has produced legendary actors like Nasiruddin Shah, Sharukh Khan and Shabna Azmi. He wanted to have the experience of NSD, hence he attended at work shop conducted by NSD.

Harish decided to enter films. He tried to join EVV through many of his writers, but nobody trusted him because he was just graduate. Uday is his best friend who used to work in Sumanth Arts as associate director. He introduced him to S Gopal Reddy (Durga Arts) who was planning Ninne Ista Paddanu at that time. He worked in story department and was assistant director for that movie. He got introduced to Kona Venkat at that time. It was Kona Venkat who brought him second project Veede (Ravi Teja). He was the one who narrated the entire script of Veede to Ravi Teja. Since then, he started having a good rapport with Ravi Teja. He got confidence that he was capable of directing a film by working with Ravi Raja. After working for 20 days of shoot, Raviraja Pinisetti got confident about him and used to give trivial shooting work. Then he was appointed as a co-director for Autograph film.

During the making of the shock, Ravi Teja selected him as director, Harish initially said that this script would not suit him but accepted. He started getting condolence messages and sympathies from all the people around for the failure of Shock film. That is when MS Raju spotted him. MS Raju is known for spotting flop directors and delivering commercial blockbusters with them. He offered him an attractive package. But he had creative differences with him during the development stage. Harish didn’t want to make the mistake he did with my first film. He opted out of the project though he was financially desperate at that time.

That is when Puri Jagan came to his rescue. He said that he has gone through similar phase in his career too. He has offered him a job in his writing department for Chiruta that launched Ram Charan. Then he continued working for Bujjigadu as well.

It was Ravi Teja who gave him birth and rebirth as a director. During the shooting time of Shock he said that he would do another film with me irrespective of the commercial outcome of Shock. He called and asked him for a story. Then he narrated the script of Mirapakai. Mirapakai was made and released. The film successfully completed 50 days in 113 centres. He then worked as a associate director for Dongala Mutha. He also appeared in cameo in few movies like A Film by Aravind, Neninthe and Nippu.

Now his latest movie Gabbar Singh. The film stars Pawan Kalyan And Shruthi Haasan. It is the remake of the Hindi film Dabangg. The movie received extremely positive response from the critics as well as the movie going audiences. The movie was marked as one of the biggest hits in both Pawan Kalyan's career and Telugu Film Industry. Gabbar Singh created a new opening day box office record in the Telugu film industry and also stands amongst the highest openers ever in the Indian film industry.
