Girish Kumar CareerIn 2013, Girish debuted in the Bollywood romantic film Ramaiya Vastavaiya, directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by his father Kumar S. Taurani, who is the managing director of Tips Industries Limited. Prabhu Deva trained Girish for three and a half years before the filming. To launch Girish, Prabhu Dheva was signed close to three years back. Prabhu Deva decided to have an audition for him. As a result, Girish had to perform on a few scenes and also a dance number. Though Prabhu liked his performance, he felt that his quality was not up to the mark, which was needed for acting in a Bollywood film. He talked with his parents about giving him some dancing training and later, he selected some 25 songs and gave them to Girish so that he could practice upon them.

Girish Kumar InterviewWhat is Ramaiya Vastavaiya about?
I think it's a complete family entertainer which a child and even his grandparents can go and watch. So we hope the audiences enjoy it.
What is your role in the film?
My name in the film is Ram and Ramaiya Vastavaiya means - Ram, kya tum aoge? and in this film, the boy - who is an NRI - comes to India for a cousins wedding and its about how he falls in love with a very desi girl and all the struggles her has to go through for this love.
Girish, how did you prepare for this role in your debut Bollywood film?
My father is the producer of the film and when Prabhudeva was signed on as director, he wanted to take my audition. So one day I performed choreographed moves and on the next day, I acted out a few scenes. And after those two days of auditions, Prabhudeva was very happy with what I could do and he asked my father if I could play the character of Ram. But he felt I needed to be more spontaneous so for that, I needed to do my dance training for eight months.
Is it easy being a star child in Bollywood?
It's not easy. Maybe it's slightly easier but you still have to put in that kind of effort. The audience is ultimately the judge and they will give you marks or ratings or whatever.
What is your diet and exercise regime?
To maintain myself, as an actor I have to watch what I eat and I have to keep working out.
