It’s not easy to become a star: Anil Sharma

Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) Filmmaker Anil Sharma, who has worked with stars like Dharmendra and Sunny Deol, is ready to launch his son Utkarsh in filmdom with “Genius”. He says that while his son has the calibre to be successful, stardom is a tough feat to achieve.

“I think that to be a star, you need at least 10 to 15 hit films behind you. It’s not easy to become a star. It’s a long journey and I feel Utkarsh has the calibre to pull a film on his shoulders. If the script is right, nothing can go wrong,” Anil told IANS.

“Utkarsh has always been a very sharp student. Besides, he did his direction and acting course from Los Angeles. He is a brilliant child and he is very focused with his work,” he added.

Utkarsh worked as a child artiste in his father’s directorial “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha”. He essayed the son of characters played by Sunny and Ameesha Patel.

Talking about “Genius”, Anil said: “This script has an unusual subject. I have been working on this script for the last two years. The film is set in today’s time and it’s not a period drama.

“I can’t reveal much about the film right now. It’s a very young and youthful film.”

“Genius” will go on floors from November.
