I am an army man’s son and we fauji kids are not spoilt brats’ – Shiney Ahuja
After a two year sabbatical, Shiney Ahuja will be seen on onscreen again in Anees Bazmee’s ‘Welcome Back’.
In 2011, the actor was sentenced to a rigorous imprisonment after he was accused of raping his domestic help. And when he was out on bail in 2014, he signed ‘Welcome Back’.
Shiney plays Honey, Naseerudding Shah’s son in the film. He plays a spoilt son and a druggie in the film and about his role, he spoke to Mumbai Mirror saying, “But I’m not similar to Honey at all. I am an army man’s son and we fauji kids are not spoilt brats”. He adds saying that his character is extremely soft-hearted and gullible; like someone who has never killed a fly in his life.
The actor was on a family holiday and hence he was missing from the promotional actiovities. He told the daily, “Anees is my older brother and now my best friend. There is nothing wrong between us. I was out of the country for the last two months with my family and just got back this week. After the launch of the trailer, Anees had called and said that they had all missed me.”
He also shared that he bonded with the men quite well during the shoot as there were only two vanity vans were allowed in the deserts of Dubai. One for the women and one for the men. Shiney shared, “It was too hot and everyone was sharing the van. We were a boy gang, making jokes and pulling each other’s legs. And I was very much a part of it.”
Shiney will also be seen alongside Preity Zinta in Jahnu Barua’s ‘Har Pal’. The film is slated to release this year end.
