Treat yourself as a newcomer not as my son: Actor Jayaram's advice to Kalidas on his debut

"I'm finally launching my son in the industry. I haven't given him too much advice but have asked him to prove himself by sheer hard work. I have also asked him to forget that he's my son and treat himself as a newcomer," said Jayaram.

Actor Jayaram's son Kalidas is set to make his acting debut in upcoming Tamil comedy Oru Pakka Kathai. And he has advised his son to make his mark by hard work instead of banking on his popularity.

Jayaram is a popular actor in Malayalam as well as Tamil.

"It's a proud moment for me. I'm finally launching my son in the industry. I haven't given him too much advice but have asked him to prove himself by sheer hard work. I have also asked him to forget that he's my son and treat himself as a newcomer," said Jayaram.

"My popularity shouldn't blind him. That was my most important advice to him," he added.

Kalidas was launched by actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan on Tuesday. It was on Jayaram's personal request that Kamal was present to launch his son.

Oru Pakka Kathai will be directed by Balaji Tharaneetharan of Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom fame.

The rest of the film's cast will be finalised soon.
