Sohail Khan On His Son, Nirvan's Career Prospect In Bollywood: 'Agar Aap Ko Actor Banana Hai To...'

Sohail Khan rose up to fame with his handsome looks and chocolate-boy portrayals on-screen during the 2000s. Despite hailing from a privileged background, he put in a lot of hard work and dedicated efforts to earn the reputation and stardom that he has today. In his personal life, Sohail got married to Seema Sajdeh and the couple welcomed two sons, Nirvan and Yohan. Unfortunately, due to irreconcilable issues, the couple divorced one another in 2022. However, they continue to share an amicable bond and co-parent their sons.

Sohail Khan wants his son, Nirvan to work with actors and learn acting

In a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Sohail Khan opened up about his firstborn, Nirvan Khan making a career into films. The doting father revealed that he doesn’t want his son to learn acting by assisting directors, but instead work closely with some of the greatest actors, so as to get a better grip over the craft. He mentioned:

“Agar aapko actor banana hai toh toh pata nahin kyun log director ke assistant ban jate hain. Senior actors must give junior and budding actors a chance to be around them and learn from them. I would love Nirvan to assist actors like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, Shahid Kapoor, Nana Patekar to observe them and read lines with them.”

“Why should I blame him, it suited both of us. Our son Nirvan was at that age where he didn’t want it but there came a time when I had to choose between my marriage and my son.

That’s when I decided and chose him.”
