Shekhar Suman spoke about ‘deep abyss’ in Adhyayan’s life where it was like he almost gave up.

Father-son duo Shekhar Suman and Adhyayan Suman will be seen together soon in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi. In a recent chat, Adhyayan said that Sanjay offering him a role when no one else was willing to take a chance on him was like a light at the end of a tunnel for him. Shekhar opened up about the “worst phase” in Adhyayan’s life when he felt like almost giving up and called Heeramandi a godsend.

Shekhar Suman told Siddharth Kannan, “This is providence. This is a godsend. This cannot happen to anybody who stayed behind, lagged behind by 12 to 13 years with no work, going through the worst phase of one’s life. You’re in a deep abyss where you are despondent, you have given up, you’re almost on the verge of giving up it’s almost like you’re becoming suicidal. ‘Ab toh kuch nahi ho sakta’. But then there is faith… you’re hanging on to the last vestige of faith… You have to fend for yourself… Jab tak audience aapko accept nahi karegi, aapko yeh ladayi ladti rehni hogi.”

Adhyayan Suman said many people in the industry said false things about him like he’s difficult to handle, doesn’t come to set on time or doesn’t take work seriously. Adhyayan said that this false perception cost him work over the years and even Sanjay Leela Bhansali had these thoughts in mind till he worked with him and saw the truth for himself.

In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming series, Shekhar Suman brings Zulfiqar Ahmed to life, a character of authority whose very demeanour exudes power and sophistication. Adhyayan Suman embodies Zorawar Ali Khan, a wealthy and arrogant nawab whose actions are guided solely by self-interest.

The historical drama series will transport audiences to a time when courtesans reigned as monarchs. Through the stories of courtesans and their clients, set against the turbulent backdrop of the Indian Independence struggle in the 1940s, the series investigates the cultural reality of the namesake area of Heera Mandi. Heeramandi is set for a release on May 1 on Netflix.
