Arvind Swami, popular for films like 'Roja' and 'Bombay', says he was a private person and so, stardom stifled him. "I had started when I was 20 years old. I didn't know how stardom would be like. I was a private person so, this stardom kind of stifled me and I wanted to step out of that and do all the things that I wanted to do," Arvind said.
Arvind, who made his Bollywood debut with Mani Ratnam's 1992 film 'Roja', is returning to Bollywood with debutant director Tanuj Bhramar's upcoming film 'Dear Dad', a coming of age story, involving 14-year-old Shivam and his 45-year-old father Nitin Swaminathan.
Talking about 'Dear Dad', he said, "We are not trying to make this film very emotional. It's a very simple film about complex situations. The father and son go on a trip which is a journey of confession and conflict where he is seeking his son's understanding about some problem that has cropped up in his family."
