Keeping up with dad
Debuting in director Vijay’s Saivam is actor Nasser’s son Luthfudeen, aka Basha. Sharing frames with his father, he plays Nasser’s grandson in the film. “Initially, I was very nervous as I’d never really observed him act. Facing him was a challenge, but his presence soon soothed me,” he confesses. With acting in his blood, he’s sure to make the family proud.
