It seems that acting runs in the veins of the family. The 24-year old Karan Kapadia is the actress Dimple Kapadia’s late sister Simple Kapadia’s son and he is counted on the youngest number in Kapadia family. Karan is the brother-in-law of Bollywood Celebrity Akshay Kumar and he is going to make a Bollywood debut with Tony D’Souza’s production next year, reports mid-day.
Dimple Kapadia has proved her acting prowess several times – much like her late husband Rajesh Khanna, who was quite famous in the Indian Cinema and was the original superstar of Bollywood. Whereas Kapadia’s daughter Twinkle Khanna too had proven her acting skills in the industry. Her son-in-law Akshay Kumar has set a big place for himself as he is counted among the biggest celebs of the Hindi Cinema.
The youngest kid of the Kapadia family is all set to take the ancestry ahead. Akki shares a close association with Tony D’Souza as they have worked together in film Blue (2009) and Boss (2013). The actor introduced the filmmaker to his brother-in-law Karan so that he could kick off his career in Bollywood.
Karan revealed his acting ambitions to Akshay Kumar and Aunt Dimple Kapadia when he was a 14-year-old kid and it surprised them, says Karan. He adds that they’ve been extremely supportive to him afterward.
They also warned Karan about the journey saying it won’t be easy ahead. At that time he was a chubby kid so he was under the impression that after losing weight, it won’t be too difficult to get films. But he has faced many rejections at the time of auditions being told that there is no spark in him. However, most appreciated the potential he has. He embraces the plus points he has and acknowledges the rejection. He has learnt acting from the Jeff Goldberg Studio in Mumbai. He admits that as a star kid he enjoys certain advantages as he never had to call any producer for him. But he tries to do as much as he can do on his own rather than using the advantages.
The youngster is working hard on his physique appearance for debut project. D’Souza also confirms launching Karan in the industry saying “Yes, we will make a film with Karan, but it is too early to say anything.”
