From a small town of Motihari, Prabhakar Sharan has made a big leap and is now a rising star of the Latin American films. He has been cast in a Costa Rican film Enredados: Le Confusion. However, Prabhakar's real life story is nothing less than a Bollywood movie, with some action and some drama.

Prabhakar told Quint Hindi his journey from Motihari to Costa Rica.

I come from a middle class family. I have worked hard for 17 years, just because I had the courage to do something different. I have faced a lot of difficulties after coming to Costa Rica. My financial and mental state both went for a toss. This journey was very difficult for me, but I did not give up. To earn money, I had to sell lottery tickets in Bihar and Costa Rica, and in turn, I also became a successful businessman.

In Prabhakar's life, a time came when his business sank and he lost everything, but he did not give up and started working again. He did not lose his passion and continued to work hard. He invested all of his capital in his first Latin American film. All his work finally paid off and his film did a great business.

After the success of Enredados: Le Confusion, Prabhakar will now release his movie in Hindi and Bhojpuri. He has named it Ek Chor Mastikhor.

Prabhakar wants to make Bhojpuri and Hindi films too. He will soon start working on those project too.
