Mumbai, Nov. 2 -- He admits that a heavyweight surname gives easy access to Bollywood, but politician Ram Pilas Paswan's son, Chirag Paswan says that, on the flipside, he is burdened with expectations.
"A powerful surname gives you an easy entry in any profession, but eventually it is your own talent that will sustain you in the industry," says the 25-year-old actor, who is making his debut with Tanvir Khan's Miley Naa Miley Hum, which releases this month.
He adds, "There are too many expectations and pressures when you come from such a background."
The actor is debuting with three female actors in the movie Kangna Ranaut, Neeru Bajwa and Sagarika Ghatge. Ask him about who's his favourite co-star or which one among them he finds the hottest, and Paswan laughs out, saying: "I am yet to complete my promotions, so I am going to be politically correct. I will say all three of them," he says.
While formal training Paswan says he trained himself in front of the mirror. "I watched films for six hours every day and then reenacted the whole movie in front of the mirror my way. It was no breaking news for my family when I said that I wanted to get into films," he says.
No pressure to get into politics? "No, my father was in fact, very supportive. Politics flows in my blood and I will definitely take it up later. But as of now, I am here to stay in the industry," says the actor, whose next goal is to find love. "I am absolutely single and dying to fall in love," says Paswan.
