‘Aligarh’ Writer Apurva Asrani’s Clarification On Asrani Being His Father

MUMBAI, (IANS) – The writer of movies like ‘Aligarh‘, ‘Shahid’, among others, Apurva Asrani on December 28 clarified a rumor which addressed veteran actor Asrani as his father and said if his dad had been a well-known actor, his struggles would have been much less.

The filmmaker served as the editor of the 1998 crime film ‘Satya’ directed by Ram Gopal Varma. It stars Urmila Matondkar, JD Chakravarthy, and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles.

Apurva is also the editor of movies like ‘Om Jai Jagadish’, ‘Mukhbiir’ and ‘City Lights’.

Apurva, who has a fanbase of 41.6K followers, shared a still of a video, which shows a collage featuring Asrani as father, and Apurva as son.

Along with the photo, he wrote: “No, that’s NOT my father. That’s veteran actor Asrani. My dad was a flight purser with Air India and had nothing to do with the movie industry. I wonder though, looking at this silly, unactual video, had my dad been a well-known actor, wouldn’t my struggles have been much less? But then again, would I have had a filmography that I’m so proud of without the trials by fire?”

The post was filled with comments like: ‘That makes you worthy’, ‘This is silliness at its peak’.

One user wrote: “What rubbish. Aha”.

The 83-year-old actor Asrani’s career spans over five decades. He is best known for his role in ‘Sholay’ as a jailer. His other works include movies like ‘Welcome’, ‘All the Best’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, ‘Garam Masala’, ‘Baghban’, among many others.

Meanwhile, Apurva made his OTT writing debut with the show ‘Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors’. The show stars Pankaj Tripathi, Kirti Kulhari, Anupriya Goenka and Dipti Naval.
