Sahil Anand takes tips from dad!


New Delhi, June 24 -- Actor Sahil Anand, who made his Bollywood debut with Student of the Year (2012), will soon be seen on the small screen. Anand will be seen alongside actor Pooja Gor and will play the role of a doctor.

Sahil's dad was most excited when he found out about his son's role. Reason: Sahil belongs to a family of doctors.

"When I told my dad that I had signed a daily soap in which I will be enacting the role of a surgeon, he literally jumped and said, 'Come to Chandigarh (my home town) before starting the shoot and I will give you tips that will help you in getting under the skin of this character'," says Sahil.

Although the actor could not take out time to go to Chandigarh, Sahil often calls his dad when he is in trouble. "Initially I was worried about how to look and act like a surgeon. I decided to consult my dad and he gave me lots of tips, from how to use a stethoscope and how to write prescriptions to the appropriate body language while operating a patient," says Sahil.
