My Bollywood entry was easy because of father: Aarya Babbar

Jalandhar: Aarya Babbar, son of veteran actor Raj Babbar, says his entry into Bollywood was easy thanks to his father.

"Entering Bollywood is not easy. I got a chance in Bollywood because of my father and he has helped me a lot and guided me through out. But it`s because of my hardwork that I am still in this industry. If your work isn`t good, it`s difficult to survive in the industry," Aarya said.

Aarya debuted in Bollywood in 2002 with `Ab Ke Baras` but it bombed at the box office. He is yet to deliver a solo hit and has been a part of multi-starrers like `Tees Maar Khan` and `Ready`.

The 30-year-old actor says acting was his personal choice and was not imposed on him by his father.

"My father never forced me to enter Bollywood. It was my interest and inclination towards the Hindi cinema that I wanted to be an actor. I had no interest in politics," Aarya added.

Aarya will next be seen in a Punjabi film `Yaar Anmulle`.
