I am dying to act, says Pankaj Kapoor
New Delhi: Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor, who was last seen in Rajkumar Santoshi`s 2007 film ‘Halla Bol’, is craving to face the camera again.
"It has been some time since I have been in front of camera and now I am dying to act," said Pankaj who is currently busy with his directorial debut ‘Mausum’.
Starring his son Shahid in the lead, ‘Mausam’ is an out-and-out romantic film and the writer-actor-director says audience will see a new side of Shahid in it.
"Shahid has proven himself in the past with his acting and now the audience will get to see a new dimension of Shahid`s acting in the movie," he said.
Pankaj was in the capital Saturday with wife Supriya and son Shahid to attend an event for special children, organised by Umeed, a vocational training centre run by Air force Wives Welfare Association.
"My father always complains that I am keeping him away from acting which he enjoys the most," said Shahid.
Shahid, who was appreciated for his performance in ‘Kaminey’ and recently-released ‘Badmaash Company’ will be seen playing an Air Force officer in his father`s dream project.
Asked how it feels to work with his dad, the actor said: "I am confident that this will be the toughest job of my career. And it will also be a learning experience for me - it`s like learning acting all again. I will try to deliver at least five percent of what I see my dad doing on screen," He added.
