Pranutan Bahl who made her debut in Nitin Kakkar’s ‘Notebook’ (2019), said she would love to share screen space with her dad, Monish Bahl.
Reported on Mid-day, the 26-year-old said it would be a dream come true for her, “I would love to work with my father. He is an amazing actor. Sharing screen space with him would be a dream come true. If I ever get a chance to work with him in a film I would become nervous for sure. I hope I don’t forget my lines in front of him.”
Hailing from an impressive Bollywood lineage, Bahl’s grandmother was Nutan, her great aunt is Tanuja and Kajol is her dad’s first cousin, when asked if she feels any pressure from her star kid status, Bahl replied, “I don’t want to call it pressure. It’s just that there are more responsibilities on my shoulders to carry forward the legacy in a dignified way. I never pay heed to thoughts like, ‘kya mujhse ho payega…papa ne itna kuch kia…dadi ne itna kuch kia…’I believe in working hard. If I consider it as a pressure then I won’t be able to move ahead.”
Talking about her relationship with her dad, Bahl shares they both talk about films at home, “Papa and I discuss a lot about films at home. It is basically a healthy discussion. He advises me on what I can do to improve myself. He made me learn how important is it for an actor to act on the spot and to understand the character graph fast. Earlier, we never had such discussions but since my debut we both have started discussing work at home.”
Further adding, “We have a very transparent relationship. Despite having a soft corner for me, he criticises too, if he finds something wrong…We never use filters while talking with each other. We always try to stay honest with each other.”
Bahl is currently working on her second film ‘Helmet’ which also stars Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee and Ashish Verma.
