Dilip Kumar’s grand-niece enters Bollywood
Dilip Kumar’s grand-niece enters Bollywood
Published at: 2 year(s) ago
MUMBAI: Grand-niece of Bollywood’s legendary thespian Dilip Kumar entered the film industry with a big bang in a leading role opposite Ajay Devgan in a film ‘Shivaay’ produced and directed under his own banner.

Bollywood has always been very keen on the entry of new faces especially those who carry kinship with legendary stars. This time round, Sayeesha took the trend forward. She is grand-niece of veteran actor Dilip Kumar who is vying to grab great successes in Bollywood career.

Sayeesha, the daughter of actress Shaheen Banu and 80’s actor Sumeet Saigol, said, “I signed the film on my 17th birthday. Ajayji saw some of my photographs and he called me for audition. After a couple of screen tests, I made the cut.”

“I was a filmy child. I would keep dancing. At 9, I started training in different dance forms. I learnt Latin American dance forms like Samba, Salsa and Cha Cha as well as Kathak and Odissi. I travelled to many Latin American countries to get the right body language. Now I am learning gymnastics. Having said that the first time I saw a film camera was on Shivaay’s set. I never visited a film set and my parents didn’t subscribe to even a film magazine. I was a studious girl but somewhere inside me I knew that acting hi karna hai. And then you can’t avoid meeting film stars at family functions. So there was an attraction,” she admits.
