Aayan Boradia is a child actor who made his impression though his brilliant performance as a six-year-old Arjun. He gave a stunning performance as Arjun, who is sent to boarding school when his stepmother arrives. He played the suffering emotions of a child very well, and made it last till the movie’s end. The film was an outstanding children’s film and even got screened in the 40th Giffoni Film Festival for Children's Films in Italy, winning the Audience Choice Award. The film had a story penned by Anurag Kashyap. His performance was particularly so true to the character. This stunned many viewers, especially when the performance of the child actor comes from an actor who has not even hit puberty. Even the international audience felt how he got such an amazing head start in his first film itself. He is one of the smallest (age-wise) actors on the big screen. The haunting look in his innocent eyes earned him more appreciation that has charmed the critics and viewers alike.

Many critics have felt that Aayan Boradia has emerged as the most talented actor, in his age group, in Bollywood history. If anyone has seen the movie, they would probably remember that stirring, delicate performance from Aayan, whose eyes can sparkle with joy, grief and wonder, depending on what the story “ Udaan” tells us. Like many child stars, Aayan too had a signature look, he would keep his eyes wide, mouth easily open for any dialogues or keep mum for a silent scene. When you see this actor playing a child role for the first time, one can guess what a heart-warming presence he had in the movie. Later on, the talented actor was seen playing young Devdas for TV series ‘Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya’ (2013). But people still search for this actor. As a host of new child actors are taking their first steps in Bollywood, it is true Aayan Boradia has made his successful debut, which is more than luck by chance.
