Sooraj Pancholi rose to fame with his debut film, Hero opposite Athiya Shetty. Son of actors, Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, Sooraj grabbed the spotlight for his handsome looks and physique. Thereafter, he became a part of mediocre hit films, such as Satellite Shankar and Time To Dance. Despite his various endeavours in the film world, unfortunately, Sooraj has frequently hit the headlines due to his personal life. For the unversed, in 2013, Sooraj was arrested on charges of abetment of suicide for his ex-girlfriend and actress, Jiah Khan. After some long years of battle at the court, Sooraj was acquitted and given a clean chit in April 2023, after a lack of evidence.

“My father has a certain image as this bad boy person, who has done many things wrong. I don't agree with it, of course, he has done things wrong. He is my father, I love him no matter what baap ek hi hota hai. I don't agree with the way he has handled things in his life but in a way I have forgiven him because I know I am his only support in life. I want to make him proud.”

However, Sooraj added that it was only after he made his film debut that he learnt about the various past fiascos in which his father, Aditya Pancholi got embroiled into. He mentioned:

“At that time, mujhe pata bhi nahi tha ki kya ho raha hai. Maine yeh sab realise kiya industry mai aane ke baad jab main logo se mila, jab maine news padhna shuru kiya. When I met people, hen I understood ki okay, these are the things that have happened. It, of course, hurt me a lot but like I said I love my father.”


Sooraj reveals if he has ever confronted his father for his wrongdoings

In the concluding segment of the interview, Sooraj was asked whether he, as a son, has ever confronted his father, Aditya Pancholi for the wrongdoings that he did in his life. To this, the former gave a well-thought answer and shared that over the years, with just one look into his father’s eyes, he has understood that the latter has realised and accepted his mistakes.
