'I am dying to act'

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 New Delhi recently with wife Supriya and 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. The actor, who was appreciated for his performance in Kaminey and the 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.
