Having caught everyone’s attention in Dharma Productions’ Strangers in the Night, Mohit Marwah, nephew of Anil and Boney Kapoor, was also the cynosure of all eyes as he made his presence felt at producer-director Karan Johar’s birthday party.
Not the one to harp on his lineage, Mohit, having studied at Theatre School in New York for 2 years, was spotted by Karan Johar, who was very keen to cast him in the short film, in which the actor put up an ovation-gaining performance, and ever since there’s been no looking back.
Says a trade source, “Mohit Marwah has a certain X-factor to him that you see in very few actors, he’s inherited the Kapoor good looks and is a trained actor who takes his job seriously. Karan Johar and Shakun Batra have been all praise for him and were blown away with his performance in Strangers in the Night. He has been approached by several filmmakers but he is being cautious about the films he signs on”.
Adding that, “Mohit, despite not having made a formal entry into the industry, is also a hit on the social media forum with everyone asking who is that guy’ – the buzz only goes to prove that he is a star in the making”.
