Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota marks the debut of Abhimanyu Dassani, actor Bhagyashree’s son. Vedanshi Pathak meets the enthusiastic newcomer

If there’s a newcomer, who doesn’t carry his lineage as a ticket to Bollywood, it’s young Abhimanyu Dassani. “I don’t like to introduce myself as my parents’ son,” says the son of Maine Pyar Kiya actress Bhagyashree and actor/businessman Himalaya Dasani. The youngster is all set to debut with Vasan Bala’s (of Peddlers fame) action-comedy Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. He believes it’s his journey and talent alone will take him forward. Reportedly, the organisers shared the news that the film, titled The Man Who Feels No Pain in English, will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film follows a young man, born with the ability to feel no pain and his quest to vanquish foes.

Apparently, the story of the film bears an uncanny resemblance to M Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, which starred Bruce Lee. The Ronnie Screwvala production features Abhimanyu opposite Radhika Madan of TV series Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi fame. Abhimanyu and Radhika waited patiently for Bala’s project to fall in place, which took two years. Abhimanyu went to the usual grime of auditions. He’d go and enact scenes every day in front of Vasan. But he never said a thing except asking him to come again the next day. “I’d get worked up thinking that day after day I come here but nothing’s coming out of it. One day when I was leaving the premises, Vasan sir called out my name and said, ‘Tu karega ye film. Start from tomorrow’!” And Abhimanyu never looked back. What followed were a series of training sessions in mixed martial arts, stick-fighting and taekwondo. The passionate aspirant even broke a bone or two while shooting the film. But he refused to use a body-double. In fact, for someone whose idols are Akshay Kumar, Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee, his debut, he believes is a tribute to the stalwarts. A business student, Abhimanyu underwent summer acting courses at the New York Film Academy. A part of him always wanted to pursue acting, perhaps the love of cinema being inherited from his beautiful mother Bhagyashree. He was also inclined towards business being an entrepreneur’s son.

Finally, creativity took over commerce when he finally told his parents he wanted to become an actor. “My mom was happy, she just wished me well,” he smiles. He goes on to share that his mother’s co-star, Salman Khan, was encouraging as well. “Salman Bhai has always been a great support. He asked me when I’d show him my film. It felt great.” Is he worried that parallels could be drawn between the success his mother’s debut film enjoyed and his own? “There can never be another Maine Pyar Kiya, no one can recreate that kind of success,” he declares. Abhimanyu and his co-star Radhika became great friends while shooting and often fed off each other’s energy and enthusiasm. Recalling their training days Abhimanyu said, “Radhika would push me to do better. Sometimes, I’d get tired but she’d easily nail the difficult action scenes. It was inspiring to watch her. It would make me wonder if she can do it, so can I. I’d try to level up to her.” His closeness to Radhika has set the rumour mills abuzz. What does he have to say about link-ups being inevitable in showbiz? “If it suits you, go ahead is all I can say,” quips the charmer.
