He may just have been two films old with his third film round the corner. However, Adhyayan Suman is stated to be in love with the mirror and his own self. So much so that his directors Raksha Mistry and Hasnain Hyderabadwala have no qualms labelling him as a narcissist.
''And I guess that's a very good thing for a superstar'', states Raksha Mistry before the term is taken in a negative sense for the young man who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of JASHNN, ''Yes, he loves the mirror and spend time appreciating himself. But isn't it much required for someone who has to compete with dozens of boys out there who could well be equally good looking and talented?''
Adhyayan also finds support in Hasnain who comments that though the word 'narcissism' usually comes with a negative connotation, in case of Adhyayan they are glad that he is taking himself seriously.
''That's because when it comes to work, he is extremely serious about what he wants and can deliver'', says Hasnain Hyderabadwala, ''It completely depends upon you as a director whether you are fine with a star/actor being egoistic to a certain extent. If that helps his self-esteem then why not? At the end of the day, when he used to come to the sets, he never proclaimed that he knew everything. In fact he used to state that get me to do whatever you think would be the best for the film and the character.''
Raksha has the final word here, ''While we as directors have to keep things controlled, we also have to given actor his own space to perform. Bring a narcissist is fine as long as it brings in positive energy to an actor's self and performance. In this aspect Adhyayan did come up with suggestions and wherever applicable, we were glad to incorporate them as well.''
Jokingly she adds, ''As long as he was grooming his looks for the role and never told us how to take a shot, we were fine!''
