Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, May 1 (IANS) Shriya Pilgaonkar, daughter of actors Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar, is set to enter filmdom through her father's Marathi directorial "Ekulti Ek". She is proud of it.

"Experience-wise I am a beginner but I think it's a wonderful time to be in the industry. There is so much happening, so much changing. I feel proud that I am doing my first film with my father," Shriya said here Tuesday at a radio station to celebrate Maharshtra Day, where she was accompanied by Sachin.

Sachin had started his acting career as a child artist with the Marathi film "Ha Maza Marg Ekla". He went on to feature in films like "Geet Gaata Chal", "Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se" and "Nadiya Ke Paar", besides doing popular TV shows.

He also directed serials for the small screen and took to film direction with 1982 film "Mai Baap".

Sachin's new directorial "Ekulti Ek" traces the relationship of a father and daughter. It is special for Shriya.

"'Ekulti Ek' is very special for me because Indian film industry has completed 100 years and my father has completed 50 years in this industry," she said.

Sachin is also happy about launching his daughter.

"We (me and wife Supriya) thought of making a film in Marathi to introduce our daughter Shriya, but we questioned ourselves: Will she be able to do it? Because Shriya has never been to any acting school and has never faced camera," Sachin said.

"Then we got an answer from ourselves that she will be able to do as she is our daughter," said Sachin.
