Remember the cutie from Gadar? Little Jeet, Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel‘s son in the film, was played by child actor Utkarsh Sharma. Now, many years later, Utkarsh is making his Bollywood “debut” with Genius, a film directed by his dad, Anil Sharma. Mr Sharma also directed Gadar, so it’ll technically be the second time he’s collaborating with his son for a movie. They’re still on the lookout for a leading lady, and have therefore launched a new casting website through which Anil Sharma will be auditioning new talent.
Psst, fun fact: Anil Sharma has “launched” celebrities like Priyanka Chopra (Hero: Love Story of a Spy), Ameesha Patel (Gadar), Zarine Khan (Veer) and Urvashi Rautela (Singh Saab The Great). In fact, Priyanka has sent out a special video message for the father-son duo, congratulating them for their new project:
While Utkarsh hasn’t had any photoshoots done yet, this picture of him is doing the rounds online:
We’ll share official photos with you as soon as we have them!
