For those who ain't aware, Utkarsh played the role of Sunny Deol and Amisha Patel's son in 'Gadar: Ek Prem Katha'. Now, the young lad will be debuting in Bollywood with Genius, the trailer of which has been released on the internet.
The three-minute-20-second-long trailer features Utkarsh as a college student who is heed over heels in love with Ishita Chauhan. But the twist in the tale is that he's a RAW agent in disguise. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the role of the main antagonist.
The film has huge doses of typical filmy romance and patriotism. It also has oodles of cheesy lines like, ' Mehenga hoon, lekin aapke liye toh muft mein bik jaoon'.

I thought he can deliver." Speaking about his son making his debut in Bollywood, he had further added, "Utkarsh has all the qualities of a good actor. It was he who told us that how passionately he wants to pursue films. "When he was in the US and studying film-making I worked on the script. Utkarsh thought it's too early for him but then I said, 'We have to do it right now'."
