Today (Dec 27th) is the birth anniversary of the handsome Bollywood heart-throb hero of the ’70s, ‘late’ actor Vijay Arora, coincidentally, the handsome Arora shared his birthday with that of macho superstar Salman Khan. Today, Vijay (also popular for his Meghnad-Indrajit powerful role in the TV show Ramayana) would have possibly felt proud that his only son Dr. Farhad Vijay Arora (PhD) is now fast emerging as an active socio-political activist-worker.

Speaking exclusively to this writer, the multi-talented son Farhad shares, “It’s my honour that recently I have been formally appointed in an important BJP party Mumbai-centric post (“VP- Sachiv-K-Mo-Mumbai”) by senior BJP Leaders including Sunil Ganacharya-jee, in fact, I am already attending Party meetings and have started interacting with people. At the moment, my work scope includes addressing employees’ issues, labour, medical, human rights, etc. of entire Mumbai city,” informs versatile Farhad who also justifies his major decision to deviate into active politics.


Reacts Farhad, “Some of the chartbuster retro-songs picturised on my dad (Vijay Arora and Zeenat Aman) especially the iconic ‘Chura Liya Hai Tumne’ and ‘Meri Soni, Meri Tamanna ‘ still resonate with the masses. Over the years in my marketing -production and occasional acting roles career, my secret wish was– someday I should also win the hearts of millions, just like my dad did on screen.”

“In fact, Dec 27th is my Dad’s 77th birth anniversary. Backed by the top BJP leaders, like Adv. Ashish Shelar-jee and inspired by our Hon’ble PM Modi-jee’s dynamic vision, I hope to soon fulfill my dream, by dedicating myself to social welfare and winning the love of the masses. At the same time, I plan to dabble with my creative pursuits, whenever time permits,” shrugs the yesteryear matinee-idol Vijay’s son Farhad who has been previously associated with premium brands and iconic Southside regional film banners and projects for marketing and finance.
