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.
