Renowned Filmmaker Pankaj Parashar’s son Vivaan is all set to mark his Bollywood debut with ‘Mumbai Saga’ that stars John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi in the lead.
The actor who has previously worked theatre and also in other critically acclaimed projects is super excited about Sanjay Gupta’s directorial project.
Expressing his feelings, Vivaan said, “When the first poster of this film came out last year, I was not even a part of the film. I am a big fan of John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, and Sanjay sir’s work. Four months later, I was on the sets of the film as one of the cast members. I could not believe it. It was a surreal moment.”
It was Sanjay Gupta’s assistant, Nadeem, who helped Vivaan show his work to the director, who was so impressed that he decided to cast the actor in the period gangster drama.
Recounting the experience of working on his first film, Vivaan says, “John sir, Emraan sir, Suniel (Shetty) sir, and the entire cast made sure that I was comfortable. It was a great learning experience from such talented actors. The biggest thing that I learned from them is humility. Despite their stardom, they never let me feel that I was a newcomer.”
