Adhyayan Suman, son of actor and television host Shekhar Suman, has shared a post on his Instagram page announcing that he will be a part of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Netflix series Heeramandi. Suman shared a picture with his parents and Bhansali and added pictures of his interview in the Bombay Times, where he spoke about his journey as an actor.

Suman wrote a lengthy caption to accompany the pictures and said,  “It took me 15 years to feel validated as an actor! To be having to play not one but two primary characters in Heeramandi is something I could only dream of!! For me Mr Bhansali is no less than god, someone I never imagined I would be working with! The biggest filmmaker in the country a maverick beyond excellence! His praise for me is bigger than an Oscar!”

Reflecting on how he dealt with failure Suman added, “It was my mother’s dream! What a journey it has been! To be able to act, direct, sing, write, I can’t ask for more!! Failure was my biggest teacher! My biggest strength! It made me fearless! Success for me is not just numbers but the fact that when the world said I was a failure I got back up and survived every blow each day!! That’s why I always say when they say you can’t do is the moment you know you can do it! Don’t let the world put you down don’t let them decide who you are! Explore your talents and don’t be afraid of no one! Audience acceptance is key! I promise you this is just the beginning! Ek baad yaad rakhna uske ghar dair hain andhair nahin! (Remember god may delay, but he will not deny)Thank you Madhurita and thank you Neha and thank you Bombay Times!!!!!!”

Heeramandi is a series created by Bhansali for Netflix that will tell stories of courtesans in pre-independence India. The show’s cast includes Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Sharmin Segal, and Sanjeeda Shaikh.
