Filmmaker Suneel Darshan’s son, Shiv Darshan, who will make his Bollywood debut in Karle Pyaar Karle in 2014, credits his choice of an acting career to superstar Akshay Kumar.
“I never wanted to be an actor but one day when my dad was shooting for Talaash: The Hunt Begins… with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor, Akshay could not make it on the set as he was unwell, so my dad called me on the set for one shot on his place. At that time I had long hair and had to cut it for that scene,” says Shiv.
“That was when I realised how much fun it is to be an actor. So in a way I am an actor only because of Akshay Kumar. I love being pampered on the set,” he added.
Shiv recounts how Akshay gave him a call after watching the trailer of Karle Pyaar Karle. “Mr. Kumar called after he watched the promo of our film. He really liked it and he said his best wishes are with us.”
Karle Pyar Karle opens in UK cinemas and worldwide on 10th January 2014, presented by Shree Krishna International and distributed by B4U.
