Madhuri Dixit’s nephew Sheehan gears up for his Bollywood debut; says his aunt guides him but wants him to make his own way into the industry
From Parineeti Chopra to Imran Khan, a lot of Bollywood stars’ kin have made their foray into the industry. Joining the bandwagon soon is the nephew of none other than dhak-dhak girl Madhuri Dixit-Nene.
Sheehan Dixit, who is a computer animator by profession, is all set to make his debut in Bollywood soon. Speaking about what brings the young chap into the world of entertainment, he said, “My love has always been computer animation. Entertainment is everywhere. Animation is also part of cinema. In animation you are in the world of fantasy. Similarly you think and imagine various characters before making a film. So in a way acting has always been my passion.”
Being his father’s first cousin, Madhuri is a family to Sheehan. Talking about the kind of relationship he shares with the actress, he added, “We gel very well with each other.
Whenever we meet in social or family gatherings, we catch up and have those long conversations. We had never discussed about cinema. She has always told me that I have come up on my own and you have to do the same. But she has always been there as my mentor. She has always guided and motivated me.”
Sheehan has been part of various television shows like Veer Shivaji and Chandragupta Maurya.
