Abhimanyu Dasani who happens to be the Maine Pyar Kiya actress Bhagyashree’s son literally gave his blood sweat and tears broke his bones and acquired action injuries like war wounds during the making of his debut film Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota (MKDNH). The film took a very long time to release.

“I didn’t allow myself to get impatient. I am glad that the film has found audiences over the months since its release. And all of us, Vasan Sir (director Vasan Bala), my co-star Radhika Madan are doing well, ” says Abhimanyu generously tipping his hat at director Vasan Bala.

“I virtually learnt everything I know about acting while working with Vasan Sir. He was a one-man school of acting for me. And whatever credit I got for the film goes to him. If and when he makes his next film, I’d love to be part of it in any capacity. Even an assistant director would be fine,” says the actor.

Abhimanyu is proud and happy to be in the same space that his mother occupied 30 years ago. “Even today people call her as Suman, the name of the character she played in Maine Pyar Kiya. I feel gratified when people refer to me as Surya, the guy I play in MKDNH. Hopefully, after my next release Nikamma, I will be called out by my character’s name in that film.”

After Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota, Abhimanyu has signed and completed Sabbir Khan’s Nikamma.

Talking about the upcoming film, an excited Abhimanyu says, “It is an out and out masala entertainer. I get to do all the filmy stuff, a lot of action and drama. It’s a full package.”

The film also stars Shirley Setia and Shilpa Shetty Kundra, and Abhimanyu can’t stop gushing about the later. “I got to work with Shilpa Shetty. She is a bundle of fun and a joy to have as a co-star. And she is physically fit and agile,” he says.

Up next is a full-on comedy with director Umesh Shukla of Oh My God and 100 Not Out fame.

“I want to keep trying new genres and new subjects in every film I do,” says the actor who admits that he has a long way to go. “I am here to act. I don’t want to become a star on social media. I can’t do it. I admire those who can,” says Abhimanyu in conclusion.
