Vivaan in ‘de-glam’ shepherd role like dad Naseeruddin

Acclaimed senior versatile actor, Naseeruddin Shah's son Vivaan has undergone a drastic macho makeover. Gone are his chubby, cherubic, plumpy looks as seen in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Happy New Year'. With his long lustrous hair, moustache and a well-toned, trim body, Vivaan is getting curious yet appreciative repeat glances from star-gazers.

Enthuses Vivaan at the poster-launch event, “What excites me now is my latest challenging role of a 'de-glam' rugged, rustic Bihari shepherd in this upcoming Hindi movie 'Coat', directed by writer Akshay Singh. Out here, my low-caste, poor character sees a 'coat' and has this burning desire to wear his own coat someday. That motivates him to start his small-scale bamboo handicrafts venture and he overcomes all the odds he faces in achieving national level success.”

“'Coat' – produced by Vipul Mehra, Kumar Abhishek and Vinod Nema – is also inspired by those self-made Indian achievers-entrepreneurs who made successful indigenous products,” smiles Vivaan, who is delighted that seasoned amazing actor  Sanjay Mishra is playing his on-screen-father, while a Hindi-speaking Russian light-eyed actress Elena Tuteja will be his glam-girl co-star.

Was dad Naseeruddin supportive of his son's brave decision to dabble in the festival-film genre?

“Dad is extra-supportive and by a strange coincidence he had also played a similar rural ethnic character in Goutam Ghose's (1984) film 'Paar'. In fact, dad had then won the National Award for his classy performance,” smiles amiable Vivaan who, in the past, has acted in three more Hindi movies including 'Saat Khoon Maaf' and 'Bombay Velvet'.
