With Amitabh Bachchan in attendance, offering his blessings and support for Shekhar Suman’s directorial debut “Heartless,” it was an emotional moment for everyone present at the trailer launch of the film.
Producer Alka Suman welcomed Bachchan with flowers and praised Shekhar for his seasoned directorial skills that did not look as if the film had a first-time director.
Lead actor Adhyayan Suman was at his confident best and said, “More than success in life, I always wished God to give me an opportunity to do something to make my parents feel proud about, and today I really thank God for making me a part of this phenomenal experience.
“The entire journey has helped me evolve into a much better person and this learning is priceless. ‘Heartless’ is not just a film but a life-changing experience for me.”
Ariana Ayam, the leading lady, was also present.
“Direction is the final destination of every actor, whether it is Clint Eastwood, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Tom Cruise or Aamir Khan,” said Shekhar about his romantic thriller, which deals with the emotional subject of anesthesia awareness.
Known for his razor-sharp wit and repartees, Shekhar said, “‘Heartless’ has a slice of my heart in it. The film is dedicated to my elder son Aayush, whom I lost to an incurable heart disease. It was a huge emotional experience for me to direct and act with my son Adhyayan for the first time. He is a very sensitive and intense actor and is the heart and soul of the film.
“Today, with fast-changing lifestyles, when most of us are becoming heartless in one way or the other, I’ve tried to make a film that will hopefully touch many hearts.”
Deepti Naval, Om Puri and Madan Jain co-star.
