"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
Juhi and Shabanaji will share screen space for the first time in Chalk N Duster. Directed by Jayant Gilatar, the movie tracks the emotional journey of two teachers, Vidya and Jyoti. Chalk N Duster also stars Richa Chadha, Zarina Wahab, Divya Dutta, Aarya Babbar, Jackie Shroff and Samir Soni
"Ravindra Jain has given some brilliant music. He was a highly respected figure and his songs are being hummed even today, which feels very good. I feel saddened to know that he is no more. He had given very good music in Chitchor. I feel artists like him can't be replaced and have their own place in the music world"
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.
"I never told my parents that I wanted to be an actor. In fact, when I was offered Hero, I didn't tell mom and dad for one to one and half years. And only when I received the narration of Hero, I told mom and dad about the offer and asked them if I should do it and they told me that if I wanted to do it, I should do it," Suraj said
Padmini Kolhapure, Zarina Wahab and Rati Agnihotri will be honoured here on Saturday (October 19, 2013) for their "active roles" in the film world.
