In India, it is an unspoken rule that an actor’s child becomes an actor and a politician’s child takes up politics. It also so happens that many actors also make the transition to being politicians over time. So, it may come as a surprise when the son of a former minister and current Rajya Sabha m e m b e r decides to shun politics and instead is lured by the glitz and glamour of showbiz.
Chirag Paswan, the 26-yearold son of MP Ram Vilas Paswan, is all set for his tryst with the world of cinema. He will be seen with Kangna Ranaut in his debut film Miley Naa Miley Hum that will hit screens on November 4.
His love for showbiz began early on, says the debutant, adding that he’d watch films, lock himself in the bathroom and stand in front of a mirror for hours enacting the whole movie in his own way. “I am a movie buff. I idolize Amitabh Bachchan. I’ve walked around shirtless after watching a Salman film and have even tried stuttering after watching a Shah Rukh film,” says Chirag.
Miley Naa Miley Hum, meanwhile, is a romantic film with a serious message, says Chirag. “It deals with kids without conventional families and their emotional journeys,” he says. The film also stars Neeru Singh Bajwa and Sagarika Ghatge. “I get to romance three girls in my first film, I couldn’t have asked for more,” laughs Chirag. In real life, though, the youngster claims to be single and ready to mingle. “I’m not dating anyone,” he says.
What about rumours about a link-up with his leading lady Kangna during the making of the film? “Kangna and I are good friends, but I realize the term ‘good friends’ takes on a different meaning in the film industry. We had a good time laughing about the rumours. The fact that we were laughing means that we enjoyed reading about ourselves. The day the media stops writing about us there will be a problem. We figured, negative or positive publicity is good, so let them write,” explains Chirag. Find Here: Ram Vilas Paswan's Son Chirag Paswan Pictures
