Sikandar Kher's filmy career has not yet been launched, yet he is already being touted as the hottest actor to debut in 2007. Son of Anupam Kher and Kiran Kher, Sikandar's first film is Sanjay Gupta's Woodstock Villa.
Such is the youngster's screen presence that a highly impressed director J.P. Dutta has reportedly approached him for the lead role in his next film. Sources say Sikandar has got "an animal instinct in him, similar to Sanjay Dutt and Dharmendra". "I strive for perfection. I like to enact my role with complete integrity to my craft. After all, there is so much at stake for the producer, director and everyone associated with the project. I have to give my best. I am also a good learner," said the confident debutant.
But isn't the huge expectation from him weighing him down, especially since his parents represent hybrid cinema? "I am never troubled by expectations, instead I welcome them. It's obvious that everyone will compare my acting skills with that of my parents. But that is a part and parcel of hailing from a filmy background. I am sure I will create my own identity. My parents have been supportive and encouraged me. I am truly blessed," the actor elaborated.
He went on to reveal that his parents had made it clear to him that acting was not child's play and only hard work and true talent would shine through.
Gauging from the actor's attitude and the buzz in the industry, looks like Sikandar is all set to conquer like his namesake!
