New Delhi, Oct 5 (IANS) Actor Arjan Bajwa, who stars in Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Fashion', did not rejoice when he was offered the film as his father had died a few days back and he wasn't able to share the good news with him.
Arjan's father died while the actor was shooting for 'Summer of 2007'.
Just four days after his father's death, he received a call from Bhandarkar's office.
'I should have been the happiest person in the world, but I was not happy at all simply because I thought that I don't have my dad to share my happiness,' said Arjan.
'I look up to my dad for anything I achieve in my life; I had this habit of sharing every detail of my life with him. He was more like a buddy to me,' he added.
Arjan made his debut with 'Woh Tera Naam Tha' and then featured as Arzan Contractor in Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai-starrer 'Guru' apart from a role in 'Summer of 2007'.
'I have been trying my luck in Bollywood for a couple of years. When I signed Mani Ratnam's 'Guru', it was a joyous moment for me,' he said.
His father was a Delhi-based politician and wanted his son to enter politics, but Arjan had other plans.
He says: 'I wanted to establish myself as an actor. I know that I can perform much better than many out there in this industry and my father wanted to see me as a hero.'
'I can never let my dad's dream die; earlier it was just a struggle for survival, now it's a matter of my dad's pride. I need to give it my best shot,' he said.
