Actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha’s son Kush Sinha, who is making a name for himself by directing short films, is not intimidated by the success of his father and sister Sonakshi. He says they have their own paths and he won’t let that affect him.
“No pressure at all. I respect what my sister and father have achieved but their path belongs to them. My path will belong to me,” Kush said.
He makes short films with social messages. First, he made Khoon Main Hai, which featured Kajal Aggarwal and Aparshakti Khurana, to highlight the importance of blood donation.
Kush promoted the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign through his second short film Mauke Ke Pankh, which features Sonakshi and Shatrughan.
What about directing a feature film?
“(I am) currently reading scripts. Looking at directing a feature,” said Kush, who was an assistant director on Dabangg and Saawariya.
Kush loves the idea of getting in front of the camera with his whole family.
“But for it to happen, we will need an excellent script and roles that suit everyone,” he added.
Talking about his experience of working with his family members in Mauke Ke Pankh, Kush said: “(It was) an emotional experience because this is the first time that I or anybody else has bought them together for a campaign/film.
“(And) professionally fulfilling because both of them have enhanced the film by contributing their time and talent.”
