Jahan Bloch is not new to arc lights. Exactly a decade back, she played the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Pradha in KOHRAAM [1999]. Now she has grown up to be a young woman and has already wrapped up her debut film as a leading actress KRANTIVEER - THE REVOLUTION. Incidentally, both KOHRAAM and KRANTIVEER - THE REVOLUTION have been directed by Mehul Kumar, Jahan's father.

''Even in my earlier years when I got an opportunity to play Amitabh Bachchan's daughter, I was very comfortable in front of the camera. Same is the case today as well when I am the playing a full fledged character'', says an ever-so-perky Jahan who is the latest to join the list of celebrity kids turning actors.For Jahan, it was a childhood dream to be seen as a mainstream heroine one day. ''Call it the genes and being a part of filmy family but ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be an actress. I must have been three years old when I spoke to dad about me becoming an actress when I grow up.''

She is more than willing to admit that she didn't feel the need to join any acting classes for her big break as a leading lady in KRANTIVEER - THE REVOLUTION.''Frankly, I didn't see any need for that. I come from a family that has made movies for decades, so why not learn straight from them? My on the job training started at home itself as I used to visit my dad's set on a regular basis. I just wanted to study the overall atmosphere of film making'', she says.

KRANTIVEER - THE REVOLUTION, which saw Amitabh Bachchan as well as Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia gracing the event of the film's launch, features Samir Aftab opposite Jahan. The film, which has music by Sachin & Jigar and is aiming for September/October release, also stars Kelly Dorji, Ranjit, Farida Jalal, Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Rishi and Aman Verma in principal roles.
