Jibran Khan, the son of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol in the film 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' and the sensible son of Sunil Shetty in 'Bade Dilwala', won the hearts of people with his cuteness as a child actor. Now he has come on screen to woo people as a hero in the film 'Ishq Vishk Rebound'. However, despite being the son of Arjun of the superhit show 'Mahabharat' i.e. actor Firoz Khan, Jibran's journey from child actor to hero was not easy.

'If you are not mentally strong then you are in the wrong industry'

On the delay in debut despite being acquainted with celebrities like Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan, Jibran says, 'Every actor has a journey. He can be an outsider or an insider and I am both. My father has also been an actor. Here it is important for the right thing to happen at the right time. I was an assistant in 'Brahmastra'. Then I decided that I have to try my luck in acting. I gave look tests for many big films but did not get them. I was very disappointed by this but in our industry, no matter how disappointed you are, you cannot be weak. If you are not mentally strong then you are in the wrong industry because there is a lot of competition here.'

Do you remember that kid from 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham'? Jibran Khan has grown up to be a handsome young man, now he will do 'Ishq Vishk'

Gibran said- keep working hard, your time will come

'Here you have to be mentally and physically strong all the time. You have to keep yourself ready that you don't know when someone will call you and you will have to dance shirtless. Parents, money are of no use here. Just stay strong, keep working hard, one day your time will definitely come. The same thing happened with me. Today I am 30 years old. I was tired of answering people that when will your film release? This got released, that also got released, why is yours not getting released? What should I answer to this? But I had faith in myself that I have to become an actor. I have to become the biggest actor of this country. I want people to be happy after seeing my work that I do good work.'

Shah Rukh did not treat me any differently from his own children

Talking about his experience of working with Shah Rukh in 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham', Jibran says, 'Shahrukh Khan is not an ordinary person, he is something else. I love him very much. I consider him my idol, my inspiration because I have seen his hard work. I have done not only films but also advertisements with him and seeing his hard work I have learned that nothing is achieved without it. At the same time, I have many fond memories related to 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'. We were all in London. His children Aryan, Suhana were also there but he never discriminated between us. He treated all of us equally. If a football was bought for one child, it was bought for all the children. It felt as if he was a member of our family. Even today when I meet him, he meets me with the same love that hey, when did you grow up so much? I want to work with him again.'

Even today people touch Papa's feet

Talking about what he learned from his father Firoz Khan, Jibran said, 'According to me, he is the best actor in the country, I understood this when I watched Mahabharata again during the lockdown. Earlier, when I was a child, I did not understand much. When I watched Mahabharata during the lockdown, I understood why people still touch his feet? People know him not by his real name but by the name of Arjun. Then I felt that such a great artist is sitting in my house and I did not even realize it. It happens, we underestimate our loved ones a bit, but during the film, I was stuck in a scene as to how to do it, so I shared this with him and the advice he gave was very useful to me. That day I understood that a father is a father.'
