"It's not a small role, it's a big role. 'Himmatwala' is a big break for me. Of course, at the end of the day 'Himmatwala' is Ajay Devgn, Tamannah and Sajid Khan's film. But I am honestly thankful and grateful that Sajid sir gave me an iconic role in such a big film that was played by Shakti Kapoor. I just hope people appreciate me in that. It's an out-an-out commercial film," the 24-year-old said here Wednesday in an interview.
In the 1983-hit Shakti Kapoor played the villain Shakti Gopaldas.
Meanwhile, Adhyayan is shooting for his father Shekhar Suman's directorial debut "Heartless", a medical thriller and asserts that it is one of it's kind in Indian cinema.
"'Heartless' is one film which people have not seen and I guarantee that it's India's first medical thriller. The kind of things you are going to see in the film, an open-heart surgery and all," Adhyayan said.
"It's an extremely entertaining film and I am sure the album is going to be a hit. It's 90 percent complete, 10 percent is left," he added.
Adhyayan's next is "Dehraadun Diary", hitting theatres Friday. Directed by Milind Ukey, it also stars Ragini Nandwani and Rohit Bakshi.
