Hritik Roshan recalls him and tweets “#MySuperTeacher – My Nana who I lovingly call Deda, for the lessons he has taught me at every stage of my life, which I share with my kids now. And Dr Oza, my speech therapist as a child, who taught me to accept my weakness and helped me overcome my fear of stammer.” J Om Prakash’s daughter, Pinky, is married to director-producer Rakesh Roshan who happens to be actor Hrithik Roshan’s dad.

Hrithik is known to be very close to his maternal grandfather and has often spoken about his love for him. Earlier in 2016, he gifted the veteran filmmaker a luxury car. Prakash made his debut with Rajesh Khanna’s Aap Ki Kasam in 1974 and the film was hugely successful. Performances were widely appreciated and it proved to be a major box office hit. The film was also a musical hit.

Mumbai: Despite being unwell, actor Shahid Kapoor will start shooting for his next project “Jersey” on December 13.

Shahid has been under the weather for a while, and his doctor has advised him to put hold on all work commitments and take bed rest.

“Shahid is a thorough professional and a man of his words. Therefore, even though the doctor had advised him bed rest, he tried to fulfill his commitments for a recent award ceremony to the best ability. Now, keeping his health in mind, the shoot of ‘Jersey’ will start a week later, on December 13,” said a source.

Shooting was scheduled to start last week.

“Jersey” is a Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name. The Hindi version will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also helmed the original movie. The story is about a talented but failed cricketer named Arjun, who decides to make a comeback in his late thirties and play for India, in order to fulfil his son’s wish.

The Hindi version also features Mrunal Thakur, and is being presented by Allu Aravind, and produced by Aman Gill and Dil Raju.

Gill said: “Shahid has a very professional approach towards work and he has always given his best. However, he recently fell extremely ill, and his health is of utmost importance to us. Therefore for him to recover fully we decided to delay the film’s shoot by a week and now will start on December 13.”
