Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty's son Mahaakshay, who has so far failed to strike a chord in Hindi showbiz, says it's a huge responsibility and a burden to be the child of a star.
Mahaakshay, who had entered the industry with the name Mimoh, told IANS: "It's not easy for the star kids. I feel it's a huge responsibility and a burden being a star kid. I am used to carrying the burden because today no matter what I do, the comparisons will always be there with my father."
"I'm used to carrying this burden and this has become my biggest strength because I can endure that burden."
Mahaakshay debuted in 2008 with the film "Jimmy", which bombed at the box office. Since then, he has been struggling to make a mark in Bollywood. He is currently busy promoting his upcoming film 'Ishqedarriyaan' and says the film is a romantic love story.
"My film is a romantic love story. In fact, it's a pure heart-touching and honest romantic love story. This is the first time when me and Evelyn Sharma are coming together on screen," he said.
Directed by V.K. Prakash, 'Ishqedarriyaan' is releasing on May 15.
