It’s raining newcomers in Bollywood this year and the latest to hop on the newbie bandwagon are starkids Priyank Sharma and Riva Kishan. While Priyank is the son of veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure, Riva is actor Ravi Kishan’s daughter. We have now learnt that the starkids are being launched by producer Nitin Manmohan. And the duo have already begun their prep work for their big Bollywood debuts! An insider tells us, “Riva and Priyank are both extremely talented kids. It’s a co-incidence that they are both starkids. But the fact is that they have earned their debuts.”
While the other details are being kept under wraps, we have learnt that their debut vehicle will be a romantic action film. In fact, it will have a lot of scope for the two to showcase their acting talent. “Both the side of parents are said to be thrilled that their children are getting a good launch pad. They’ll make the formal announcement soon. There are other things that are still being finalised as of now,” adds the insider. Besides, being a starkid, Priyank also happens to be Shraddha Kapoor’s cousin.
Ravi Kishan too is said to be happy that his daughter is getting a good debut. “He’s had to struggle a lot initially. So he’s happy that his daughter will atleast not struggle as much to make inroads in the industry,” shares the insider. The two kids are said to be undergoing rigorous training ahead of their film launch. “They are both very sincere about their launch and are taking it very seriously. They cannot discount the fact that inspite of being starkids their struggle at the box office will be theirs,” adds another source.
