All eyes will be on Bollywood box office today with the release of Love Story 2050 and Jaane Tu..Ya Jaane na featuring two promising debutants Harman Baweja and Imran Khan respectively. Both come from film families and are contrasting personalities.
With the first half of 2008 not providing much fireworks at the box office, trade analysts are pinning hopes on these two films to lead the way in the second half. Harman is the son of filmmaker Harry Baweja while Imran is the grandson of noted filmmaker late Nasir Hussain and nephew of Aamir Khan.
Harman makes his debut under the directorial baton of father Harry in the film produced by his mother Pammi. Imran takes his bow as an actor with lyricist turned director Abbas Tyrewala and Aamir as producer of the film. Tall and handsome Harman has been compared to Hrithik Roshan because of his looks and dancing skills while Imran with his typical choclate boy looks remind the audiences of a young Aamir Khan.
Harman is trained in film production and always wanted to be an actor and Imran studied filmmaking at New York film school aspiring to be a director. Acting happened just by chance to him. Both Harman and Imran begin their careers with romantic films -Harman with a sci-fi, futuristic love story and Imran with a contemporary romantic tale set up in the backdrop of a college campus.
