Padmini Kolhapure and filmmaker Pradeep Sharma’s son Priyaank Sharma is all set to make his film debut with first time director Karan Kashyap’s ‘Sab Kushal Mangal’ that rolls next month. Produced by Nitin Manmohan’s daughter, Prachi Manmohan, it also features Akshaye Khanna in a pivotal role.
Kolhapure told the media, “I’m excited. The atmosphere at home has always been non-filmi, there was no pressure on Priyaank to become an actor or a filmmaker. The choice is his.”
The doting mum recalled how even when he was in school, Priyaank was interested in dramatics and his teacher would always praise him, reports the Mumbai Mirror. “He’s an avid movie buff and has done a oneyear acting course from The Lee Strasberg Institute in New York,” she said.
Prachi revealed that when her casting director sent her Priyaank’s picture, she recognised him instantly. “We had studied in the same school and in fact were in the same class,” she smiled, adding that since he suits the role perfectly, she was keen to cast him.
“It’s been two months since Priyaank began his workshops, he knows the entire script by now. He is very hardworking and we can’t wait to begin,” Prachi said.
