The concerned father is too happy to talk about his son's career and his plans to produce films with him, rather than the alleged Kangna-Adhyayn affair.india Updated: Dec 25, 2008 10:50 IST
Actor Shekhar Suman is not interested in talking about his 20-year-old son Adhyayan's reported affair with actress Kangana Ranaut. Instead, he talks about how all the films made by his production house will star his son.
Shekhar launched his production company Windmill Entertainment in association with UTV last year and is planning to produce television shows and films.
"Hopefully, we will be producing a couple of films next year which will have Adhyayan. In fact, all my films will have Adhyayan," Shekhar said.
"Every producer who has an actor-son makes films for him. Rakesh Roshan does it for his son (Hrithik) as well as many other producers. Why shouldn't I?" he asked.<b1>
Adhyayan, whose debut film Haal-E-Dil was a box office dud, will be trying his luck again in Mahesh Bhatt's Raaz.
"His first film did not do well but his performance was appreciated," Shekhar said.
Adhyayan's reported love affair with popular actress Kangana has been much talked about, but Shekhar wants his son to concentrate on his career. He does not even see marriage in the near future.<b2>
"He (Adhyayan) is just 20. How can he get married? He has to go a long way," said Shekhar.
Refusing to comment on their relationship, Shekhar said: "I think all these personal questions need to be put to them and not me."
Shekhar said he is confident that Adhyayan will get his due in Bollywood after the release of Raaz and Jashn.
"2008 was not good, but 2009 will be good for him as the two films Raaz and Jashn will be releasing in which he has done commendable work. And the praise for his acting came from one of the most able directors of Bollywood like Mahesh Bhatt, which means a lot," Shekhar said.
Both films are being produced by Bhatt's Vishesh Films.
As far as his own acting assignments were concerned, Shekhar said he was working for a couple of films with Anand Mahendroo, who produced the hit comedy show Dekh Bhai Dekh for Doordarshan in the early 1990s.
"After working with Anand Mahendroo for Dekh Bhai Dekh, I am doing two films for him after a long time," Shekhar said.
"Besides, he is planning a film on Dekh Bhai Dekh of which I will be an integral part."
