You have to be lucky to be chosen from a platoon of 5,000 kids vying for the same role — Sonam Kapoor’s brother in Delli 6.
Delhi boy Vinayak Doval certainly got lucky. He can now be seen running around Chandni Chowk and play pranks with Sonam and Abhishek Bachchan in the promos of the film.
A student of Bluebells school, Doval dreams of becoming the future SRK. Right now he’s relishing all the attention he is getting at school: “In school I have become like a superstar. When my school mates see me they say, ‘Delli 6waala ladka aa gaya’.”
The past few months have been unforgettable for him. He says, “Sonam is my didi. I used to call her ma’am but she told me to call her didi. Abhishek is like a friend. He played pranks with us and also raced with us. Rakesh sir was very gentle and not at all serious, in fact he cracked jokes all the time.” He goes on to add, “Once I was feeling very cold, and Abhishek gave me his coat to wear and Sonam didi is very pretty and caring too.”
Ask about his take on the film and he quips, “It is a film on Delhi, on every bindas Delhiwaala.” As a Delhi- ite, who loves his home city very much, he enjoyed being part of the film more than anything.
