Tusshar Kapoor to launch production house, says sister Ekta Kapoor won't be part of it
Planning to launch production house, Tusshar Kapoor asserts that sister Ekta Kapoor won't be part of his venture
"Production has been on my mind for a while," says Tusshar Kapoor, as he shares with mid-day his love for stories. While the prospect had lingered in his mind in the past, he is now considering it earnestly.
"The idea is a concrete one. There are a few stories on my mind that I wish to produce, but production is a full-time job. It can be exhausting. I am committed as an actor, and do not wish to leave acting to pursue production. So, striking a balance will be necessary," says Kapoor. He adds that while he isn't certain of when he will make his debut, the idea of venturing into production is playing on his mind "all the time."
Given that sister Ekta has made a mark as producer, both in films and television, one might assume that Kapoor could benefit from collaborating with her. However, the actor talks about starting out alone. "I want an entity that's entirely mine. Ekta and I have distinct tastes, and equally strong opinions. We live under the same roof, so, I think it's okay to have separate work identities. Of course, we always have each other's back."
Kapoor returned to acting after a paternity break following the birth of his son, Laksshya, in June 2016. He was certain to take his tiny tot on the sets of Golmaal Again, as soon as he was old enough to accompany him. "He was excited to see the colours and hear the music," Kapoor says.
