Ganesha of 'Mahadev' wants to be bigger star than Salman

New Delhi, Jan 9 (IANS) He is all of seven, but Sadhil Kapoor has already made a place for himself in the heart of viewers with his heartwarming portrayal of Lord Ganesha in the popular mythological show "Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev". The child actor hopes to become a bigger star than his ideal Salman Khan one day.

"I want to be an actor in future. I am a huge fan of Salman Khan and want to be a bigger star than him," Sadhil told IANS.

"I even met Salman once on the sets of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. He gave me a chocolate and autograph too," he added.

This is not the first show that Sadhil has been a part of. He was previously seen in "Chintu Chinki Aur Badmash Company", "Bhai Bhaiya Aur Brother" and even features in Surf Excel's latest ad.

The young one is enjoying being Ganesha to the core as he has a ball on the sets.

"It is fun to play Ganesha. I play a lot on the sets with Kartikeya (Rushiraj Pawar) and Ashok Sundari (Ahsaas Chanana). We play 'pakdam-pakdai' together," said Sadhil.

The current track of the show focuses on the growing angst of Kartikeya over Ganesha, which eventually leads to a race between the two to decide who will be worshipped first.

The special episode featuring the race will be aired Sunday on Life Ok.

Sadhil also impresses with his flawless dialogue delivery. The dialogues, he says, are "difficult for me to learn as they have heavy Hindi words. Sometimes I don't understand them, but my father helps me to memorise them".

A class IV student at the Seven Square Academy, Sadhil has fans among his friends and family and says: "All my friends and family members are very happy to see me on TV."
