Utkarsh was a child artist in ‘Gadar’, played son of Sunny Deol & Amisha Patel
Ace filmmaker Anil Sharma who is best known for the movies like Gadar: Ek Prem Katha & The Hero: Love Story of Spy, has recently announced his next movie titled as Genius. In this, Anil is launching his son Utkarsh in a lead role. He made the announcement on July 14, which was also the day of his startup in the industry with the movie Shrandhanjali in year 1980. July 14 was also the birthday of his daughter, so he found it the best day for such announcement.
Investigating further about the venture, Anil Sharma said to Bollywood Hungama “I first though of making a film to launch my son once he had returned after completing his film making course in the states a year back and that is when Genius was conceptualized. Now that he is returning, he will be welcomed with this announcement.”
Regarding the plot, he added “Genius will feature action, drama, romance and comedy, basically it will be an all-round entertainer. To put it simply Genius is a film that tells the story of the battle of the heart fought by the mind.”
On asking about the rest cast and production details, Anil Sharma said “I will be producing the film under my own banner Anil Sharma Productions and I will also be directing the project. In terms of cast we are yet to finalize the lead actress and are currently looking at option.”
