Tanuj told IANS, "Me and my mother are working together in Purani Jeans. She is playing my mother and it's altogether a different experience to work with your mother. I was a bit nervous, but she made me feel comfortable."
Directed by Tanushri Chatterji Bassu, Purani Jeans also features Adiya Seal and Isabelle Liete.
Acknowledging the sacrifices made by his mom, known for hits like Ek Duje Ke Liye and Coolie, Tanuj said: "Besides a great actress, she is a wonderful mother. Just for me, she gave up her acting career when she was at her peak. I respect her a lot. It's not easy to sacrifice everything."
Tanuj's debut film Luv U Soniyo is slated for a July 26 release.
