The 71-year-old actor spent some quality time with Shekhar and his family at the event. He expressed his joy to be part of the lauch of "Heartless" first look.

"More than success in life, I always wished God to give him an opportunity to do something to make his parents feel proud about and today I really thank God for making him a part of this phenomenal experience called "Heartless". The entire journey has helped me evolve into a much better person and this learning is priceless. "Heartless" is not just a film but a life changing experience for me," said lead actor Adyayan Suman at the event.

"Direction is the final destination of every actor whether it is Clint Eastwood, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Tom Cruise or Aamir Khan," said Shekhar Suman.

"Heartless has a slice of my heart in it.The film is dedicated to my elder son Aayush whom I lost to an incurable heart disease. It was a huge emotional experience for me to direct and act with my son Adhyayan for the first time... he is a very sensitive and an intense actor and is the heart and soul of the film.Today, with the fast changing lives & lifestyles, when most of us are becoming heartless one way or the other, I've tried to make a film that will hopefully touch many hearts," he added.

The romantic thriller also features Deepti Naval, Om Puri and Madan Jain in vital roles.

"It's my biggest honour to direct three of the finest actors in the Industry, Om Puri, Deepti Naval and Madan Jain. I've introduced a new girl Ariana, who has in her the makings of a great actress and I'm sure she will go a long way," said Shekhar. "Direction is my calling and my new poison. If you want to evolve, you never stop trying... as they say a rolling stone gathers no moss."
