IN SEARCH OF SUCCESS Adhyayan Suman

“I want to reach the pinnacle of success through my own efforts, not only on account of being Shekhar Suman’s son,” says Adhyayan Suman, whose second movie, “Jashnn - The Music Within” is slated for release this week.

As real as it can get

Adhyayan, who was at Inox in Bangalore with his co-stars to promote the film, said: “I relate to the character a lot, as he also wants to achieve success based on his own skills and talent. The story deals with a 22-year-old who arrives in Mumbai from Ajmer to pursue his dreams. It follows the trajectory and showcases his trials and tribulations before he achieves success. In fact, I feel that it is one of the few cases where my character in a movie draws so many parallels to my real life persona.”

“I hope that by putting in hard work and sincere effort, I can reach the top in the industry.” He adds: “My relationships have often been talked about and written about too much, which has resulted in a break in my concentration levels and has created lack of focus. I hope my performance in this movie has been much better than ‘Raaz-2’.”

On Mahesh Bhatt’s claim that the trio of Shahana Goswami, Anjana Sukhani and Adhyayan himself are potential star material and superb actors, he quips, “I owe a lot to him, as far as my performance in the movie goes. He manages to get the best out of you, be it your acting skills or the ability to emote well. I have enjoyed working in both movies with him and hope that I get the opportunity to work in many other movies alongside Bhatt saab.” Like co-stars Shahana and Anjana, he dismisses any similarity between “Jashnn” and “Rock On” as mere speculation. With a wide grin he says, “Though ‘Rock On’ was a great film, ‘Jashnn’ is very different, with Shahana being the only common factor.”

He adds, “In ‘Rock On’, music played a central part in the narrative, while I feel that though music has played a vital role in ‘Jashnn’ as well, it only provides the background to the movie. It remains a movie about a small town boy, making it big in the entertainment industry.”

Adhyayan is currently working on two films — one with Mahesh Bhatt and another, whose name he cannot reveal yet.
