His eldest son is being mentored by Naseeruddin Shah, said Paresh and added, "My second son is into screenplay, he is into writing."

"I never had any launching pad. I can give them advice, but if you think I will invest Rs 10 to Rs 15 crore and launch my kids, then I will not do that. Besides I don't even have that much money," he said.

"Let them struggle and find their own way," added the actor who entered filmdom in the early 1980s and found a foothold after his hair-raising performance as a ruthless smuggler in ‘Naam’.

In his over three-decade career, he has played all kind of roles from villainous to character to comedy.

One of his recent noteworthy performances was in ‘Special 26’. He also impressed in ‘OMG - Oh My God!’.

Paresh's next is ‘Raja Natwarlal’, releasing on Friday, and he said, "It's a believable film and we have worked a lot on the script. I have worked with Emraan earlier and he is an underrated actor. He is extremely hardworking."
