Actor Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj, who is entering showbiz with forthcoming “Hero”, says being a ‘star kid’ is tough as people have several expectations from them and they are under constant scrutiny.

He says he has “struggled” to land a role in “Hero”, in which he stars with Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya.

“Struggle has been there… not every star kid gets a platform. It is easier to get it (work), but there has to be some talent and some hardwork in you. Our struggle is very different because star kids come with certain criticism towards them.

“We have to deal with all that and cope with expectation of everyone because they want us to be as good as our parents, who have been a part of the film industry since a long time. It is really tough to be a ‘star kid’,” Sooraj said.

The emerging star was in the Millennium City on Saturday to promote his film with Athiya and superstar Salman Khan, who has produced the film.

Talking of the struggles of being a star kid, Salman said: “It is difficult as their first film is compared to their parents’ last film.”

Salman also shared Sooraj is “shy, introvert but honest and sincere”.

Directed by Nikhil Advani, “Hero”, releasing on September 11, is a remake of Subhash Ghai-directed 1983 film of the same name. The original film stars Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Seshadri.
