Son of yesteryear's actress Simple Kapadia and cousin of the unapologetic author Twinkle Khanna, Karan Kapadia is all ready to make his Bollywood debut with Tony D'Souza and Vishal Rana's forthcoming film. The untitled drama will reportedly involve numerous action sequences with a pinch of romance.

Once an obese weighing 112 kg, Karan resorted to regular gyming and workout to gain a fit and healthy physique. During an interview with IANS, he revealed, "I've learnt to ride a horse and the bike. I've been swimming and I trained in martial arts for six months in Bangkok."

Karan shares a special bond with his aunt Dimple Kapadia and cousin Twinkle Khanna that instead of his other family members, he confided in them at the age of 14 about his desire to become an actor. "They were initially surprised but understood that having grown up around their sets as a child, it was inevitable that I’d want to follow in their footsteps," the 24-year-old confirmed.

Karan had earlier assisted Tony in his 2013 Akshay Kumar-starrer Boss. His action-packed debut film will be helmed by Behzad Khambata. Media reports suggest that Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna are likely to make a cameo appearance in the entertainer. The film is slated to release next year.

The film will go on floors in January next year and the youngest Kapadia family member cannot be more excited about his debut. "I have known Tony and his team for a while now. Working with people you’ve known for a long time is great. I play a 26-year-old boy who is trying to find his way in the world. As soon as I heard the script, I knew I wanted to be a part of it," he said.

Akshay Kumar has reportedly introduced Karan to Toni, which started the duo's frequent meetings and collaboration. At the mere age of 16, the future actor has assisted director Rahul Dholakia in his film titled - Society.
