Inesh Kakker with his parents

Kulbhushan Chaudhary (38), Senior Manager (Liaising) with Reliance Jio, lives with his family in Noida. His wife Ranjana Kukrety and he believe their seven-year-old son Inesh, a student of class 3 at Apeejay School, Noida, is a blessed child.  Chaudhary talked to Apeejay Newsroom about his son’s achievements at a young age. Read on.

Tell us more about the little champ?
Inesh has been a blessed child and is a blessing for us right from his birth. We had nothing to do with the entertainment industry but when he was born, his complexion was very fair. At that point of time, we thought of introducing him to the industry.
At the age of three, he was featured in India’s most famous children’s calendar called ‘Indian Cutest Kids’ mentored by Vipul Roy and shot by celebrity photographer Munna S. In this calendar, entries were invited from all states of the country and out of about 5,000 kids, just 40 were selected.  These kids went through two rounds of audition and were then featured in the calendar based on the themes of Bollywood Movies. Inesh was featured as Junior Bachchan for the movie Bunty Aur Babli.
He also made it to the headlines for the same in multiple newspapers. From there he has never looked back and it’s like a passion and hobby which he has developed for this field. He has also done music videos, short movies, print shoots etc.

What are Inesh’s hobbies?
He is a happy-go-lucky child. He loves making friends and is always cracking jokes and smiling. He is learning lawn tennis from the school coach. He loves playing scrabble. He is a gadget freak. Inesh loves technology and knowledge games which need brainstorming. He had also participated in the English vocabulary competition in which he won the gold medal for two rounds. Apart from these, Inesh is an active participant in school events including lawn tennis and inter-school fashion shows. He was also a chief guest for his playschool’s annual day.

Is he good at academics?
He has been rated number one by all the teachers in the classes till now.

Is he undergoing any training or extra classes to enhance his acting skills?
No. Nothing as of now. As we started at a very early age, he has been very comfortable in this field. Even when Inesh joined Apeejay in class Nursery, he was able to read Hindi and English both. It grabbed the attention of his teachers.

Is Inesh active on social media?
Yes, his accounts have been made on various social media apps. He is a verified user in most of these mobile applications. We call him a celebrity. He has a reasonable amount of followers on Instagram. He has his own Facebook page and a YouTube Channel too. His website is under progress.

How was his experience during shoots?
He enjoys the experience. He has done his latest video on a song on friendship called ‘Maahi Mere’. The video was uploaded on YouTube and it got more than 100K views.

Who manages his work?
It is me who manages his work. Whether it is his profiles, commitments with brands or projects, I look after everything.

Any offers that he got recently?
Inesh got a few offers for 3-4 movies, but we turned them down due to the pandemic situation. He is a child and his safety is our first priority. He cleared many auditions, but to avoid the risk of getting infected from the virus, we decided to refuse them. He was also selected for the international film festival for which he had to go to Indonesia, but again we refused.

How has Apeejay School supported Inesh?

We always keep his shoots for weekends to ensure that his studies are not hampered. But yes, the school has been really supportive in encouraging his skills. Inesh has also been featured in the Apeejay School advertisement inviting admissions for session 2021-22. The management and the teachers at Apeejay are really nice and supportive.

Does he plan to pursue acting in the future?
We are not really sure. We would like him to pursue it as a hobby, not as a profession.

“Inesh’s commitment had helped him deliver his best performances and results. He is a celebrity for us who makes us proud.”
