Naseeruddin Shah’s youngest son Vivaan is set to make his Bollywood debut

Naseeruddin Shah’s youngest son Vivaan is set to make his Bollywood debut opposite Priyanka Chopra - he is playing one of her seven husbands in Saat Khoon Maaf. The Vishal Bhardwaj film, an unusual drama of passion and polyandry, also stars his father. Naseer plays Priyanka’s oldest husband while 20-year-old Vivaan plays the youngest.

Shooting is currently on at Coorg, and Priyanka will join the unit from Delhi after receiving the National award from President Pratibha Patil.

Vivaan was chosen by Vishal after he happened to see the boy and found him just right for the role. Vivaan had no plans of a career in acting at this stage and age. Though casting both father and son as Priyanka’s husbands does appear rather audacious, Vishal seems convinced about it.

Said Naseer’s elder son Imaad, “Yes, my younger brother Vivaan is doing Vishal Bhardwaj’s film along with my father, but I don’t know what role he’s playing.” Though everyone associated with the film is tight-lipped about this casting coup, another source has confirmed that Naseer and his younger son Vivaan are indeed playing Priyanka Chopra’s husbands.

The final list of Priyanka’s husbands in Saat Khoon Maaf (the title may be revised again) is: Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan, John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anu Kapoor, an undisclosed Russian actor and Vivaan Shah.

He resembles his mother, who is quite good looking. And it is indeed audacious to cast father and son both as husbands of the same woman, trust Vishal to constantly push at boundaries!!!

This really sounds interesting..its heartening to see Priyanka work with such good directors..she has come a long way and is one of my favorites of the current lot.
I hope Vivaan has imbibed some of his fathers fine acting skills..his brother was so bland in all the movies he has acted in.has that intellectual hangover..keeps reminding me of Rahul Bose..hate him
