The current crop of young stars are evidently upping the quality of action in Bollywood. But, it is the forthcoming generation — having trained in athletics since a young age - that promises to deliver magnificence. While Rakesh Roshan had revealed in an interview to mid-day that grandsons Hrehaan and Hridhaan were being trained to become physical geniuses, choreographer-director Ahmed Khan now says that son Azaan also has many titles under his belt.

"Azaan is an expert in bareback horse riding, an art he probably picked up on because his forefathers were jockeys and trainers. He is a gold medalist in deep sea swimming and a blackbelt in taekwondo and a specialised form of martial arts, Khan Do Kwan," says the father, adding that he's most excited about his son's athletic prowess in the snow.

Asserting that he will put his skills on display when he launches him in the forthcoming years, Ahmed adds, "He is an expert on snow. He knows how to ski, surf and ice skate. He can also pull-off somersaults, head dives, apart from swimming in snow. Azaan digs six feet in it and can stay under snow for five minutes bare-bodied." Ahmed says big production houses are keen to sign him, but the Baaghi 2 director hopes to do that himself. Azaan will also assist him on Baaghi 3, before taking part in an acting course.
