Aditya Roy Kapur comes from a filmmaking family, despite the fact that his parents haven't worked in the industry. Kunaal Roy Kapur, the older brother of Aditya, is an actor who began in theatre before moving into Bollywood. Siddharth Roy Kapur, their oldest brother, is a film. While his father, Kumud Roy Kapur, became an Army Officer, Aditya's grandfather, Raghupat Roy Kapur, was a filmmaker in the 1940s.
The Malang actor recently shared how his family returned to the industry after a generational break. He said, "My dadaji came back in the day, he made four films. For whatever reasons those films didn't work. Then after that, he stopped producing. Growing up, my brothers and my mom were all into theatre and dance and the rest of it, and somehow we found ourselves back in the industry after skipping a generation. So, growing up film was never an influence in the house because we had no connection with the industry. My dadaji passed away before I was born, and he hadn't been active in the industry for the last few years. My brothers and I found ourselves back in the industry in 2008-09. And we all came from different areas- Siddharth came from Star, Kunal came from theatre and television, and I came from being a VJ."
In his latest film Rashtra Kavach Om, the actor plays the role of a commando. When the actor whose father comes from an army background was asked if he found any scene familiar or was there any resemblance, he said, "Nothing in particular as such. But growing up, this influence was at home. I grew up listening to my dad's stories about it. It was all sublimely there, so I didn't need to do that extra prep because I grew up listening to all his fun stories from the army. I did ask him about a few things, basic technicalities, combat stuff and about his state of mind."
Rashtra Kavach Om was released in theatres on July 1, the film stars Aditya Roy Kaput and Sanjana Sanghi in the lead roles. Meanwhile, Aditya will also next appear in the Tamil hit remake Thadam alongside Mrunal Thakur.
