Ahan Shetty Is Ready To Make His Bollywood Debut
Three years after Salman Khan launched Suniel Shetty's little girl Athiya Shetty with Hero, Suniel's son Ahan is good to go for his Bollywood debut with Milan Luthria's upcoming venture, which will likewise have Salman’s association. Maker Sajid Nadiadwala has approached stunt director Stefan Richter, who worked with Salman on 2014 hit Kick, to plan the stunts for the upcoming film. The movie will be a Hindi remake of Telugu hit RX 100.
Confirming the development, Milan said in a statement, “I love having different kinds of action in my movies, be it Kachche Dhaage (1999), Deewaar (2004) or Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai (2010). It’s important I work with professionals who understand that the stunts in my films are story and character-driven. Stefan has a terrific body of work behind him and understands my kind of action. Preliminary meetings with him and Ahan have been exciting and he’s the perfect choice for the stuff we are attempting to showcase with him.”
Asked about launching star kids, Salman had earlier said, “I will continue to back more kids for as long as I can. Why? Because I was also launched at some point and I think the industry can do with some more fresh talent.”
Stefan shared, “It feels like coming back to your family after a long time. Kick with Sajid sir was one of my best experiences ever. Working with him and Salman along with the crew was just amazing. I have worked on Dishoom as well. Whenever I come to Mumbai, I make sure I visit Sajid sir and we spend time chatting about films. I look forward to working with Milan. We have met a couple of times and have had an interesting exchange of ideas about this movie.” Richter has his previous association with Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson.
According to the grapevines, Ahan has been practising for his debut for a few years now and he even went to London to learn martial arts. Interestingly, Sajid Nadiadwala also launched Ahan’s father Suniel with Waqt Hamara Hai in 1993.
