Ac­tor Kishori Sha­hane Vij is a known face on both the big and small screen. And now the ac­tor is look­ing for­ward to pass­ing on her legacy to her son, Bobby Vij, who is all set to make his act­ing de­but. The ac­tor shares that talks are on and soon an an­nounce­ment will be made.

“Bobby has been pas­sion­ate since his child­hood. Even while in school, he would do var­i­ous pro­grammes. He has been part of two movies (Shirdi Sai Baba, 2001 and Ma­lik Ek, 2010) as a child ac­tor. For quite some time now, he has been work­ing to­wards his dream and has also been trained in dance, mar­tial arts and gymnastics. He has also got him­self trained as an ac­tor on stage. I am not say­ing all this be­cause I am a mother, but Bobby is a nat­u­ral ac­tor and I hope he gets the op­por­tu­nity to prove him­self,” says Kishori, who has done films and TV shows such as Sha­gird (2011), Mo­henjo Daro (2016) and Ya­haaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, Do Dil Ek Jaan, re­spec­tively.

Though Kishori’s hus­band Deepak Bal­raj Vij is a film­maker, the cou­ple is not keen on launch­ing Bobby. She shares that both want Bobby to cre­ate his own space in the in­dus­try. “He will def­i­nitely get all the guid­ance that is re­quired from us but at the end of the day, ev­ery­thing de­pends on him. There’s a lot of hard work and un­cer­tain­ties that are part of the pro­fes­sion. We have been telling him to give his best at ev­ery step,” she says.

Mean­while, Bobby re­port­edly has been get­ting a lot of of­fers from TV, but he has not ac­cepted any of them. Con­firm­ing the same Kishori shares, “He is in­ter­ested in do­ing films right now. The fo­cus is on good sto­ries. If given an op­tion he would like to do ro­man­tic and ac­tionori­ented films.”
