Being the grandchild of Raj Kapoor, one can only imagine the sort of pressure Armaan Jain feels as the release of his debut film ��Lekar Hum Deewana Dil�۪ is nearing.�� Most kids who have grown up in a film family would have been preparing themselves for years in advance.�� However, Armaan Jain was not quite ready when his debut film fell into his lap and his cousin, Ranbir Kapoor, had a long conversation with him to make him realise the importance and responsibility of an acting career in Bollywood.
���Armaan was quite under-prepared to act in a film which reflected in his first few auditions.�� He was terrible! Not that he was incapable, he was just under confident,� director Arif Ali revealed to Mumbai Mirror.
The director went on to say, ���Ranbir had a long conversation with Armaan and explained to him that the time of fun and games is over.�� It was one of those ��brotherly conversations�۪ which sets you up for life.�� He told Armaan that we knew what we are doing.�� While we were willing to invest faith and money in him, he needs to perform.�� From the next day, Armaan was a transformed kid.�
Though Kapoor�۪s own debut film, ��Saawariya�۪ (2007), did not live up to expectations at the box office, it did showcase him to be a talent to reckon with.�� As an actor he has always been known as someone who is extremely passionate about and committed to the movies.
��Lekar Hum Deewana Dil�۪ is slated for release on Friday 4th July 2014.
