“I love action, so I would love to do a lot of action movies. But I would also love to do an animated voiceover. I would love to do comedy and would also love to play a villain. Any script or character that excites me and touches my heart, I would love to do it. I feel for an actor, it is important to step out of your comfort zone because that is the only time you actually grow so,” said Karan, while interacting with the media at the trailer launch of his debut film on Thursday in Mumbai.
Karan was at the event with debutant costar, Sahher Bambba, and grandfather Dharmendra.
“Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas” is directed by Karan’s dad Sunny Deol. The trailer opens with Sahher Bambba signing up for an adventure trip with Karan Deol as her guide. Their relationship begins with sweet banter and soon turns into love.
Asked to comment on the ongoing nepotism debate, the Deol clan’s youngest entrant, Karan, said: “If you think about pressure, then you will not be able to move ahead in life. So, you have to always stand up and create your identity, and do what you think is 100 percent in your heart. At the end of the day, your work speaks for itself so, hopefully my work will speak for itself.”
When Big B carried Waheeda Rehman’s footwear
Mumbai– Fans often hero-worship stars but have you ever heard of a star hero worshipping someone? That’s exactly what megastar Amitabh Bachchan did once for the legendary actress Waheeda Rehman, who he considers his idol.
“The first time I got an opportunity to work with her (was) in the movie ‘Reshma Aur Shera’. During the shoot, there was a sequence where Sunil Dutt and Waheeda ji had to sit bare feet in the desert, where it was impossible to stand in the sand with our shoes, because of the high temperature. I was so worried about how Waheeda ji was managing to shoot in such an extreme conditions, and too without footwear. So, as soon as the director announced a break, without wasting time, I took Waheeda ji’s juttis and ran towards her. I can’t even express how special the moment is to me,” said Big B, about Waheeda Rehman, with whom he later worked with her in films such as “Trishul”, “Adalat”, and “Namak Halaal”.
Big B revealed that he considers Dilip Kumar and Waheeda Rehman his two idols in life. “I have two idols in my life — Dilip Kumar ji and Waheeda Rehman. Waheeda Rehman has always been the most beautiful women to me till date. She is not only a great actor but also a great human being by her nature. For me Waheeda ji is a perfect example of the Indian woman. Waheeda ji has given huge and incredible contribution to our Bollywood Industry which cannot be expressed through words,” said Amitabh Bachchan, when he appeared on the set of the Sony TV show “Superstar Singer” with Waheeda Rehman and Asha Parekh.
