Life can imitate art, as child actor Jay Thakkar"s family found out recently. Jay, who plays Shethji in 'Laagi Tujhse Lagan" (Colors), apparently sticks to his character of a rowdy character, even when he is off screen. A recent incident got him into a spot of trouble, according to our source.
“Jay bullies his school mates, and threatens them with strong action, with phrases such as kaan ke neeche maroon kya. His intention is not to carry out his threat, but to have a bit of fun. However, his teacher complained to his family about his behaviour," says the source. He adds that the teacher even warned his family to be careful, and to make Jay understand that he may be rowdy on screen, but he has no right to threaten other children.
Jay has learned his lesson, hopefully. We look forward to his role as Cheeku in SAB TV"s 'Gutur Gu".
