Default Shekhar Suman admits to being a bigger failure than son

Shekhar Suman who is presently judging Star Plus reality show Perfect Bride feels that unlike his son Adhyayan, he had entered Bollywood at the 'wrong time'. So is it regret that is playing on his mind as he is seeing his son slowly climb up the ladder in Tinsel Town?

"Kind of, you may say. I can see my son slowly finding his feet in Bollywood and it forces me to think what went wrong when I made my debut in Utsav (1984). My entry was grossly mistimed. Other than the fact that my debut vehicle was delayed for two years because of Jennifer's (Shashi Kapoor's wife) death, it was definitely not a time for newcomers. The old guard had not vacated their seat at that time and new heroes had not yet found their feet. Whatever be the reason, I do not have any qualms in saying that unlike my son, I was a failure on the big screen. His failures are nothing compared to mine," he said.

Further, about the success on TV Shekhar said, “Though there's nothing wrong in TV, I don't see him appearing in soaps for sure. For a long time, I was completely averse to doing soaps on television and was convinced that people will say, 'Look, a failure from the big screen has come to TV'. But the success of Dekh Bhai Dekh changed the whole course of my career."

Moreover Shekhar is also shocked by the amount of newcomers making their debut on television these days and then getting lost in the clutter in a few months. About the newcomers he said in the print, "You see a good face on TV and a couple of months later it's gone. They become one-serial-wonders. At times, some actors do not get due recognition even after doing good work. I just hope that things will change in the television industry.”
