Having a parent in the television industry is always an added advantage for aspiring actors. And like Bollywood, we have also seen the tradition happening in the television industry as well. We have examples like Ketkie Dave and Sarita Joshi, Sushma Seth and Divya R.
Likewise we have a mother and a son who are presently in the industry and are really lucky with the projects they have done.
Puru Chibber credits his mother for the passion he developed for acting. He states, "As my mother was into acting I too got attracted towards it. When my career started, I assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Saawariya, after which I completed a course from Anupam Kher's acting academy. After that I did an episodic for Sony TV's Rishta.com and then finally Khotey Sikkey happened. My mom and I never discuss work at home but I am sure that she will correct me whenever I go wrong."
That's the level of appreciation the mother and son have for each other...
