Director Priyadarshan’s daughter  Kalyani Priyadarshan who has  established herself  in  Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam  cinema, will soon be making  her Bollywood debut.

 However  papa Priyan will have nothing to do with it. “She is a very clear-headed  young woman. Knows exactly what she  wants, and what she  doesn’t. And  she certainly doesn’t want  me  to launch her. When Kalyani  decided  to be  an actor she had only one ground-rule  for herself: she won’t be launched by her father.”

This made Priyan very proud. “I could  have  made  a dozen films for her ,launched her in style in the South. She chose to be  launched in an  outside production . The Telugu film Hello  produced  by Nagarjuna  and featuring his  son Akhil Akkineni with  Kalyani.”

In Hindi  too Priyan won’t do  the needful. “She  wants  to be  launched in an outside  film. And  I  respect that. She feels success  feels  better when achieved without  family’s professional  support.And I agree.”
