Priyadarshan opens up about casting his daughter Kalyani in her Hindi debut

Bollywood News

Director Priyadarshan’s daughter Kalyani Priyadarshan who has established herself in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam cinema, will soon be making her Bollywood debut. However papa Priyan will have nothing to do with it. “She is a very clear-headed young woman. Knows exactly what she wants, and what she doesn’t. And she certainly doesn’t want me to launch her. When Kalyani decided to be an actor she had only one ground-rule for herself: she won’t be launched by her father.”

This made Priyan very proud. “I could have made a dozen films for her, launched her in style in the South. She chose to be launched in an outside production. The Telugu film Hello produced by Nagarjuna and featuring his son Akhil Akkineni with Kalyani.”

In Hindi too Priyan won’t do the needful. “She wants to be launched in an outside film. And I respect that. She feels success feels better when achieved without family’s professional support. And I agree.”

Interestingly another actress Raveena Tandon chose not to be launched by her father, a very successful producer-director Ravi Tandon. But Raveena chose to be launched by G P Sippy in Patthar Ke Phool.
