Shekhar hopes to accept an award with son Adhyan
Bollywood has seen some entertaining father-son jodis in the past, and actor Shekhar Suman (left) hopes that one day he, too, will deliver a blockbuster movie with his son Adhyan (right).
“All wishes don’t come true but when some of them do, it’s worth all others. I really want to work with my son and get our work appreciated. I am waiting for the day when Adhyan and I will go up on stage and thank everyone for their love as we receive an award,” says Shekhar, who shared screen space with his son in Heartless (2014).
Adhyan, 27, made his Bollywood debut with Haal-edil (2008), but has not been able to establish himself in the film industry. Shekhar says it’s only a matter of time before his son makes it big.
“It is my biggest dream to see Adhyan as a successful actor. He has been a wonderful actor, son and friend. It is only a matter of time that he gets a pedestal to showcase his talent. He has a lot to give and is really passionate about acting,” says Shekhar.
As for himself, the 52-yearold says there’s still a lot to explore as an artist, and he is willing to put in more effort. “I’m a very dissatisfied actor and that is a good thing because I want to be creatively satiated. I’ve done theatre, movies and films and still want to explore the film industry with different roles of a director and a producer,” says Shekhar.
“Anyone who says that he or she is satisfied with his career is either lying or has become complacent as an artist. I’ll never be someone who would say that,” adds the actor.
