MUMBAI— Simple Kapadia’s son and Dimple Kapadia’s nephew, Karan Kapadia, is all set to make his acting debut in 2018. Karan, the youngest member of the Kapadia family, is starring in an untitled film.

Karan shares a great bond with cousin Twinkle Khanna and brother-in-law Akshay Kumar. And the family is now looking forward to see this young gun on the silver screen.

He also reveals that he had earlier been obese at 112 kg, but after regular gym, he is now a fit and healthy 88. “I’ve learned to ride a horse and a bike, I’ve been swimming, and I trained in martial arts for six months in Bangkok,” informed Karan Kapadia in a media release, who also learned acting at the Jeff Goldberg Studio.

Kapadia is now gearing up for his maiden film to be directed by Behzad Khambata and produced by Dr. Shrikant Bhasi, Nishant Pitti, Tony D’Souza and Vishal Rana.

Akshay Kumar has shared a close association with D’Souza – the two have worked together on two films, “Blue” and “Boss.” and it was while Kapadia was an assistant on “Boss” that D’Souza spotted his potential. He calls Dimple Kapadia a second mom for him. Simple Kapadia, one-time actress and then dress designer for Sunny Deol for many years, passed away in 2009.
