With promos of MILEY NAA MILEY HUM, Chirag Paswan's first outing as a leading man, trying to make their presence felt by being all over the satellite channels, one can well expect the debutante's family to be quite happy as well. So what were the kind of reactions that were shared with him, especially by his politician dad (Ram Vilas Paswan), when he was first seen on the screen?
Smile Chirag, "I think more than me they are excited about my debut. Of course they would be biased but then as someone who has worked in the film for months at stretch, I know that I won't let them down. Moreover my confidence comes from the fact that my dad has been quite vocal with his feedback right through the making of MILEY NAA MILEY HUM. He has been a part of the entire making process of the film and visited me quite frequently on the sets. He was an integral part of the shooting schedule and used to give a lot of inputs."
Though for the outside world this may seem like interference, Chirag says that his father was present mainly in the capacity of audience and wanted to share his reactions about a particular scene or act based on how actual viewers would look at the film.
"Fact of the matter is that dad himself is very fond of movies. He was a great fan of Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar and has seen all their movies. So when he participated in the making of MILEY NAA MILEY HUM, it was a complete outsider," reasons Chirag, "Dad wanted to catch those finer details and then give inputs to Tanveer. Even my director didn't mind that because most of the inputs here were quite valid and for the betterment of the film. In fact he insisted on dad to be on the sets for most part of the shooting schedule."
With Kangna Ranaut, Neeru Bajwa and Sagarika Ghatge as the leading ladies and Kabir Bedi, Poonam Dhillon and Suresh Menon in other principal roles, MILEY NAA MILEY HUM releases all over on 4th November.
