Shekhar Suman is currently enjoying accolades for his performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’. The series, which also features his son, actor Adhyayan Suman, in a supporting role, has garnered significant attention.

During the interview, Shekhar and Adhyayan discussed their roles in ‘Heeramandi’. Adhyayan spoke about his struggles, mentioning how he was once written off in the industry but has managed to make a comeback with his performance in the show. Shekhar emphasised the importance of perseverance and learning from others’ experiences. He said, “Take a cue from other people’s journey. Look at Katrina Kaif. When she came in Boom, she couldn’t stand, say her lines, or even dance, but look at where she reached. Look at her performance in Rajneeti and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara. Even in Dhoom 3, you could never say that she is the same girl who had started like that. It happens to the best of people.”

Shekhar continued by citing more examples of actors who had rocky starts but eventually found success. He remarked, “Even Deepika Padukone grew into a beautiful actress. Ananya Panday used to go through a lot of trolling until Kho Gaye Hum Kahan happened. So you have to take it on your chin with a pinch of salt and a sense of humour.”
