Kunal Khemu’s ride to fame
Eagle Eye, Bollywood Trade News Network
Child artistes have never had it easy. The last child artiste to have made it big was Sachin. After that there have been loads of them who failed to make an impact after they grew up as the audience simply failed to accept them. A case in point is that of Master Raju and Master Mayur, both of who played Junior Amitabh in umpteen movies. But when they tried to make it as a hero, both failed miserable. Mayur’s Love In Goa bombed badly two decades ago and he never really got another chance. As for Raju, he was reduced to doing bit roles and finally settled for the small screen. Both are off the radar today. However, Kunal Khemu seems to have learnt from the mistakes of these two child artistes. He took a long hiatus after his hits and came back with a bang in Kalyug. One could not associate him with the brat from Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke or the other hits that he was a part of. He planned his career well and kept pictures of him out of the media. His performance in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Traffic Signal is the talking point now. Clearly, the kid has marketed himself well to establish himself firmly on the big screen. A lesson to be learnt for current child artistes if they have any hopes of being a hero one day.
