After impressing audiences with his work on Indian television, talented actor Priyansh Jora is now ready to set foot in Bollywood. He is making his silver screen debut with T-Series Films’ Khandaani Shafakhana which hits the marquee on 2nd August. The young actor is paired opposite Sonakshi Sinha in the comic-caper.

Talking about his Bollywood ambitions, Priyansh Jora says that working in good films was always on his mind. He also reveals that he had been offered several films while he was busy doing shows on television.

“I came to Mumbai in 2012 from Delhi and 24 was my first work on television. When I was doing Tu Mera Hero, I remember the show opened with the highest TRP of 3.4. My other show Bade Bhaiya Ki Dulhaniya has also given me a lot of satisfaction. Working in good films was always on my mind and I have willingly waited for the right role. In between, I have got a couple of offers but I couldn’t see a great opportunity in them,” says the actor.

Did he feel restless while waiting for the right opportunities to knock at his doors?  “Certainly. But, I am very patient when it comes to doing the right work! I have believed in my talent and got the right support and motivation from my family, especially my father who has always had my back and told me that do what you think is right!”

About working with Sonakshi Sinha in his first film itself, Priyansh says that she is a very chilled-out person. “She is a senior actress, but she was very chilled-out on the set. That helped me relax, too, and work better.”

Talking about the message that Khandaani Shafakhana tries to deliver, the actor says, “I feel that the subject is extremely relevant. In India, most men refrain from talking about sexual problems because of the male ego. On the other hand, most women are too shy to open up, as they have been told from childhood that it is a taboo subject. It is important that we have normal conversations about sex. Our children shouldn’t grow up thinking that it’s something that shouldn’t be spoken or discussed. During my growing-up years, when we would crack jokes on sex, the grown-up women in our families would tag us ‘non-veg guys’. The point is, when somebody cracks jokes on sex or discusses it, nobody understands that the more open one is about it, the easier it is to solve problems around.”

Directed by Shilpi Dasgupta, Khandaani Shafakhana releases on 2nd August, 2019.
