23 Mar 2021: Sunny Deol's younger son Rajvir to soon debut in Bollywood
Following the footsteps of brother Karan, Rajvir Deol is all set to foray into Bollywood.
The younger son of actor Sunny Deol, Rajvir has been roped in to be the leading man for Avnish Barjatya's directorial debut.
The untitled destination wedding romcom will be on the lines of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and it will reportedly cast several new faces.
Debut film: Avnish is Sooraj Barjatya's son, had worked on 'Prem Ratan...'
Avnish is senior director Sooraj Barjatya's son and has worked on his father's family drama Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, starring Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor.
According to reports, the drama demands young actors and the casting process is underway.
The team reportedly plans to begin shooting by the end of this year with a schedule in India as well as abroad.
Launch: Rajvir's brother stepped into Bollywood in 2019
Sunny had launched his older son Karan with 2019's romantic-action flick Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. It also featured actress Sahher Bammba.
Directed by Sunny, the movie failed to create a mark on the box office. It also left critics unimpressed.
Recently, Karan confessed that the failure of PPDKP has motivated him to work harder. He said the coronavirus-induced lockdown helped him recalibrate himself.
Line-up: Meanwhile, Barjatya is working on two more projects
Like his son, Barjatya is also busy with work and is said to be involved with two projects — one featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani, and another with Salman Khan.
The Bachchan-Irani film, titled Oonchai, is likely to go into production in September this year, with the makers eyeing a 2022 release date.
After this, the filmmaker will focus on the Khan-starrer.
Star kids: Earlier, Shanaya Kapoor's debut was announced
The news of Rajvir's debut comes close on the heels of Shanaya Kapoor's debut announcement.
Yesterday, it was revealed that she has joined Karan Johar's Dharma Cornerstone Agency.
Daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor, Shanaya joined a long list of celebrity kids launched by Johar.
Shanaya was last seen in a cameo role in Netflix's Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives which starred her mother, Maheep.
