Does Tusshar need to copy his father Jeetendra?
Last seen in his sister's production 'Dirty Picture', Tusshar is currently working in 'Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum'.

New Delhi: Tusshar Kapoor's film career started in the year 2001 with 'Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai' opposite Kareena Kapoor. The fiulm became a success at the box office but Tusshar failed to carve a niche for himself. Occasional hits such as 'Shootout at Lokhanwala', 'Kya Kool Hai Hum' and 'The Dirty Picture' made him stay in the film business but it doesn't seem that he has come up with any remarkable performance than the 'Golmaal' series.

Probably this is the reason that Tusshar still needs to imitate his father's mannerism. The promos of his forthcoming film 'Chaar Din Ki Chandni' shows exactly this.

However he is not the first one to imitate Jeetendra. Many actors including Shah Rukh Khan, have aped Jeetendra's signature dance steps. Now Tusshar Kapoor will be seen copying his dad's dancing style in his forthcoming film 'Chaar Din Ki Chandni', though Tusshar confesses he was nervous about it.

"I was a bit nervous because I would do it in my style, as to get his style was a bit tough. But then I thought - forget how he used to do it, and danced in my style. I was sure that I had to put in a lot of energy because he always invested a lot of energy," the 35-year-old said here at a promotional event held for the film.

"Even now, if I am performing and he is sitting and watching me, I get a little embarrassed, wondering what he is thinking of my performance," he added.

Critics and audiences may pan Tusshar's film, but the actor says his father never made negative comments about his movies.

"He likes everything about my films. He does not dislike anything about them because he is a father," said Tusshar.

The young Kapoor has teamed up with Kulraj Randhawa of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' fame in 'Chaar Din Ki Chandni' that hits theatres March 9.

"He is very excited about this film because he likes the energy and it's his type of film - full of family drama and entertainment. I am sure he will like it, but he is not a critic. He will never make any negative comment about my films," he added.

Last seen in his sister's production venture 'The Dirty Picture', Tusshar is currently working in 'Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum' and 'Shootout at Wadala'. (With additional inputs from IANS)
