David Dhawan is over the moon. He directed Shahraan’s papa in his own debut as director. The kiddo will now feature in dad’s maiden production!
Life has come full circle for David Dhawan. He debuted as a director with Taqatwar starring Sanjay Dutt. On Monday, he took the first shot of Sanju’s son Shahraan for Rascals.
“He’s barely five months old but is very comfortable on the sets. He’s at Mehboob Studios every evening with his two nannies and spends time on Sanju’s, David’s and Lisa Haydon’s laps until wrap- up.”
In fact, when producer Indra Kumar showed up on the sets to get Sanju’s dates for Dhamaal 2, he was struck by the li’l one’s looks and resemblance to Sanju.
He jokingly said he’d give a signing amount for Shahraan at that moment, sensing he had the makings of a star.
“Not one to be outdone, Dhawan piped in to point out that Rascals was a Dutt Production and he was directing. Why let anyone else direct Shahraan for his first shot?
He quickly took an impromptu shot of Shahraan on Dutt’s lap, stating he’d use it somewhere in the film either during opening or end credits.”
Says David, “I love having Shahraan on the sets. I want to see him every day now. He reminds me so much of Sanju in his looks, eyes and persona. He looks exactly like his father.” Agencies
