A few years back, the actor had shared his two cents about the ongoing nepotism debate in the entertainment industry. He had said, “Son of an architect or doctor can become an architect or a doctor, but if a film star launches his son/daughter in the industry, then why cry nepotism? A father or mother will do their duties by providing their children with support and guidance. How can that be wrong? If nepotism really worked then Vashu Bhagnani’s son, Harry Baweja’s son, Sunny Deol’s son, or even Amitabh Bachchan’s son would have been like Tom Cruise the star, but we all know it’s not factual.”
He was last seen in Crash COurse, a web-series that is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Talking about his future projects, he will be seen in Dream Girl 2, starring Ayushmann and Ananya Panday. For the unversed, he was also a part of the first movie, where he essayed the role of Ayushmann's father. If reports are to be believed, the Raaj Shaandilyaa directorial will be releasing on the big screens later this year.
