Siddhant Kapoor has revealed that he would have liked to have made his acting debut alongside his father Shakti Kapoor.

The actor makes his first appearance alongside John Abraham in the upcoming thriller Shootout at Wadala.

He told Bollywood Hungama: "I wished I had made my debut with him in Shootout at Wadala. Dad is completely the opposite of what he is on screen. Yes, he is a workaholic. He doesn't like to sit idle.

"I have grown up on a few of my dad's films like Aatish, Maha Sangram, etc, where he played a bad guy. I think watching those films left a lasting impression on me to join the industry and I too wanted to be an actor.

"I liked everything raw and unpolished. I started doing plays and theatre too. Later on I saw Anurag Kashyap's first film Paanch, that never released, and I decided this is what I seriously wanted to pursue for the rest of my life - acting."

Siddhant added: "For a son who knows that his father has done more than 700 films and then to match up to him in regards to sheer acting prowess is quite intimidating. He is a brilliant actor, no doubt about that. But I didn't think all this.

"I wanted to put in my talent, my confidence. His era was different. Today, the way we think about movies is different."

The sequel to 2007's Shootout at Lokhandwala co-stars Tusshar Kapoor, who admitted that he found the action film "challenging".

In September, Abraham reportedly narrowly escaped being hit by a flying bullet during a fight scene.
