"Happy birthday you cartoon. Thank you for being such an important part of my life! Love you too much Athiya Shetty," tweeted Sooraj, who is the son of actor Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab
Sooraj Pancholi, who won the Best Debut Actor (male) at the second edition at the TOIFA, has already shared screen space with his father Aditya Pancholi in his first film, which also starred actress Athiya Shetty. "I want to do my next film with her (Zarina Wahab)," said Sooraj
"It's actually tougher because when you are a star kid. People don't compare us with newcomers or our father's first film, but with their last film," he said. Sooraj is the son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.
Athiya Shetty made her Bollywood debut opposite Sooraj Pancholi in Hero, which was co-produced by Salman Khan. Of her mentor, Athiya, who is the daughter of actor Suniel Shetty, said: "He is not our teacher or a preacher. But he is our boss and a very cool and good looking boss". Hero is the remake of Subhash Ghai's 1983 film
The figure, though very good for a film starring newcomers, is not as spectacular considering the aggressive promotions and marketing strategies deployed by its producer Salman Khan who has served as a 'mentor' to the debutants. Sooraj is the son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, while Athiya is the daughter of actor Suniel Shetty and Mana.
"It feels good but 'superstar' is a big word. I am trying to be an actor first. To be a star it will take time. We can't be a star overnight. If he (Salman) sees that (superstar) in us then it is his greatness," saod Sooraj Pancholi, who will make his Bollywood debut with Hero, backed by Salman Khan
The actor said, "There is no kissing scene in the film. We wanted to put one but they (filmmakers) refused. I have not done kissing scene (generally), how can I ask them (Sooraj and Athiya) to do it. I don't think they also wanted to do a kissing scene"
When asked about the Jiah Khan episode, Sooraj said, "Time is the biggest healer." The actor was certain that he would emerge a stronger man after the entire incident. Sooraj was charged with abetting actress Jiah Khan's suicide on June 3, 2013
Actor Aditya Pancholi's 22-yesr-old son Sooraj Pancholi will be launched in Bollywood soon. And according to reports, Salman Khan will help the young boy make his debut in Bollywood.
