I was born to act: Chirag Paswan
New Delhi: He belongs to a political family but Chirag Paswan says his heart beats for Bollywood and that`s what led him to pursue a career in the film industry.
Chirag, son of Lok Janshakti Party president and Rajya Sabha MP Ram Vilas Paswan, is all set to enter Bollywood with his debut film `Mile Na Mile Hum` opposite Kangana Ranaut.
"I was born with the dream of seeing myself on the big screen. I get goose bumps by watching Amitji, Shah Rukh and Salman perform.
"I remember, after watching a three hour film I would spend another six hours in front of the mirror practicing dialogues. So, I feel these habits have led me to the place where I am today," he told reporters.
But the actor, who is an active member of his father`s political party, plans to do a balancing act between politics and movies.
"I cannot quit politics because it`s in my blood. I will continue doing it side by side. I really enjoy going out with dad and meeting people in remote villages. Politics gives you a chance to reach out to the masses and know their problems," he said.
The film was earlier titled as `One And Only` has been renamed at the request of Chirag, who wanted his debut film to have a Hindi title.
"Producer Anuj Saxena is a good friend of mine. I asked him to change the title because I wanted a Hindi name to my debut film."
With the film, Chirag has joined the league of actors Riteish Deshmukh and Arunoday Singh who come from a political background.
"I am happy with the way Riteish and Arunoday have evolved in the industry. It`s really commendable."
The film will see him playing the character of sportsman.
"I am playing a tennis player in the movie which is a very unique. I have done six months regular training to learn the various nuances of the game," he said.
The film will hit theatres on November 4.
