An actor who had been written off after his very first film is on the comeback trail.
The actor is none other than 'Jaani Junior', Puru Raj Kumar! Puru whose debut film 'Bal Brahmachari' (1996) sank without a trace, has risen literally from the ashes like the Phoenix.
Thanks to his good show in 'Mission Kashmir' and 'Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai', Puru has secured a new lease of life.
Puru, who is a pale shadow of his legendary father known for his dialogue delivery and stylized acting, is determined to carve a niche for himself.
But you can't blame him for feeling that the comparisons are unfair as he is only three films old.
The boy deserves a chance. Devastated by his father's death, Puru was able to recover only in March 2000 when he began shooting for Satish Kaushik's ' 'Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai' .
But there is no lack of competition. Arrayed against him are his siblings - brother Panini and sister Vastavikta - who are also keen on hopping on to the Bollywood bandwagon.
Well, one thing is for sure. This one certainly is a family plot !
