While Ahan Shetty has been trying his best to spread the word about his debut film Tadap, Suniel Shetty also has left no stone unturned to make sure his fans watch his son’s film. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Ahan spoke about the comparison with his father Suniel.
“I am very proud to be my father’s son, but his journey was different and my journey is going to be different. I am just very happy that I can carry his legacy forward. Other than that I don’t feel any pressure. Ya, I am going to be compared to him, but you just can’t let that get to you,” he said, adding, “My father is such a respected person in the industry, so if I can even earn 20% of the respect he’s got, would be amazing.”
While Tadap’s box office performance remains mediocre, critics also were not impressed with the film. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the movie one star, and wrote, “By the time the twist — verily, yes, there’s a twist — comes along, it’s too late. By that time, we are buried under the love track, and the best friend (Sumit Gulati) track, and the action track. The two people who make the best of this mothballed ‘Tadap’ are, no, not, the lovebirds, but the two daddies, Mishra and Shukla.”
Tadap is a romantic action drama, which is a remake of Telugu film RX100. The film also stars Saurabh Shukla, Kumud Mishra and Sumit Gulati among others.
