Actor Paresh Rawal has been entertaining the audience for over four decades now. From serious to comedic to a villain, the versatile actor has essayed many characters. The Bollywood industry has seen many star kids follow the footsteps of their parents to become actors and so is the case with Paresh Rawal’s son, Aditya Rawal. 

Aditya Rawal recently made his Bollywood debut with the film ‘Bamfaad’ which didn’t do very well at the box office. In fact, not many people were aware that Aditya is Paresh Rawal and Swaroop Sampat’s son and it was only around the film’s release that people realised this. Recently, during an interview when asked why did he not launch his son, Rawal said that he doesn’t ‘have that kind of money’.

While speaking to, Paresh Rawal said, “I did not launch him as my son because I don’t have that kind of money. To launch my son, you require a big machinery.’ He further said that he is proud that Aditya’s “work is fetching him work”, without his father’s recommendations.

“But isn’t this good?” Paresh said while adding, “Through his own effort, he got noticed. People loved his work in 'Bamfaad'. And now, he is working with Hansal Mehta. I mean, he is working with a director like him. So, his work is fetching him work. He doesn’t need his father’s recommendation.” 

Aditya Rawal co-wrote Ashutosh Gowarikar’s movie ‘Panipat’ which was released in 2019. When asked if Paresh gave his son any lessons or teachings before his Bollywood debut, the ‘Hera Pheri’ actor said, “Before my son became an actor, he was a writer. He went to NYU to study scriptwriting and playwriting. In regards to acting, he trained in London International School of Performing Arts, London for 6-8 months.”

Paresh further praised Aditya and said he works with sincerity and dedication adding that all he gave him was good luck and support.

“I know with how much discipline, focus and dedication he works. So, I didn’t give any sort of lessons to him. Also, I think with this generation, we should let them find their own way. We don’t need to guide them. They are smart and honest. This generation doesn’t require your advice. So, give them a direction only when they ask. All they need is your support,” the 71-year-old concluded.

On the work front, Paresh Rawal will soon be seen in Priyadarshan’s ‘Hungama 2’ which also stars Shilpa Shetty and Meezaan Jaaferi. He will also be seen in Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Toofan’ where he will essay the role of his coach.
