Paresh Rawal, a self-made actor, wants his sons to learn the ropes and find a place for themselves in filmdom. He has no plans to launch them.

His eldest son is being mentored by Naseeruddin Shah, said Paresh and added: “My second son is into screenplay… he is into writing.”

“I never had any launching pad. I can give them advice, but if you think I will invest Rs.10 to Rs.15 crore and launch my kids, then I will not do that. Besides I don’t even have that much money,” he said.

“Let them struggle and find their own way,” added the actor who entered filmdom in the early 1980s and found a foothold after his hair-raising performance as a ruthless smuggler in ‘Naam’.
