Actor-turned-director Shekhar Suman has dedicated his directorial debut film 'Heartless' to his elder son Aayush, who passed away at a young age.
Shekhar Suman is making romantic medical thriller 'Heartless', that features his son Adhyayan.
"'Heartless' has a slice of my heart in it. It is quite close to my heart as it is dedicated to my elder son Aayush, who passed away at the young age of 11 due to a heart ailment. The film was a huge emotional experience for me to direct and act with my son Adhyayan for the first time. He is a very sensitive and an intense actor," Suman said.
"The film is based on a never seen before phenomenon of 'anesthesia awareness', a frightening state where in patients who are administered anesthesia are conscious from within, they can see, hear and even experience pain while their body remains still," he said.
'Heartless' stars Deepti Naval, Madan Jain and Om Puri in pivotal roles. The film is set to release on February 7, next year.
