Shekhar Suman recalls Katrina Kaif’s early struggles, motivates son Adhyayan

Bollywood actor, Shekhar Suman who is currently basking in the success of his latest release, Heeramandi, has recalled actress Katrina Kaif’s struggling journey in the industry.

Suman highlighted that when Katrina debuted in the film ‘Boom’, she couldn’t even talk, dance, or stand properly. But, now she’s a popular film star in her own right and his son Adhyayan could take a page from her book.

Recently, Shekhar and Adhyayan Suman gave an interview to discuss their roles in Heeramandi. During the session, Adhyayan revealed that he was once written off as an actor in the industry.

To this statement, Shekhar said that,

Take a cue from other people’s journey. Look at Katrina Kaif. When she came in Boom, she couldn’t stand, say her lines, or even dance, but look at where she reached. Look at her performance in Raajneeti and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara. Even in Dhoom 3, you could never say that she is the same girl who started like that. It happens to the best of people.

Some details about the father-son duo

Explaining his point further to his son, Shekhar added,

Even Deepika Padukone grew into a beautiful actress. Ananya Panday used to go through a lot of trolling until Kho Gaye Hum Kahan happened. So you have to take it on your chin with a pinch of salt and a sense of humor.

Talking about the hit series, Heeramandi has recently been renewed for a second season by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Viewers cannot get enough of all the actors in the series who have played their parts to perfection.

Even acclaimed actors like Fardeen Khan, Shekhar Adhyayan Suman and Taha Shah have received huge praise.

However, Sharmin Segal became the target of trolls and fans alike who judged her performance as without a soul and expressionless and have also demanded that she be taken out from the next season of the show.

But, Segal has found support from her fellow Heeramandi actors who have said that she played a brilliant role.

Meanwhile, in the series, Shekhar Suman has portrayed the role of Khan Bahadur Zulfikar Ahmed.

On the other hand, his son, Adhyayan plays the role of Nawab Zoravar Ali Khan and also the role of young Zulfikar in the series. He is shown to be the patron of Lajjo aka Richa Chadha.

Apart from them, the series also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Sanjeeda Sheikh in critical roles.

Now, both father and son are gearing up for the second season and will look to enchant their viewers.

Adhyayan and Shekhar have worked together previously as well

Previously, both father and son have worked in a Bollywood film as well. It was the 2014 release, Heartless, where Shekhar played Adhyayan’s doctor.

The plot of the film tells that Adhyayan while undergoing a heart transplant surgery, gains anaesthesia awareness and sees that both his doctor and his wife, played by Ariana Ayam have hatched a plot to kill him.

The film didn’t do well commercially and tanked at the box office. However, its songs went viral among the public who still use them in their Instagram reels.

Furthermore, Adhyayan gained commercial success with his film Raaz- The Mystery Continues back in 2009 alongside Kangana Ranaut and Emraan Hashmi.

Shekhar Suman mostly gained his popularity by doing television sitcoms and reality shows that made him a household name back in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.

He also does a comedy show on ABP News, previously, Star News by the name of Pol Khol in which he satirizes political news and gives it a humorous touch. This also gave him immense acclaim in the TV industry.
