Zayed Khan who is popularly known for his films “Main Hoon Na” and “Shabd” is the next Bollywood star to make his acting debut on the television with Siddharth P Malhotra’s new show for a leading channel.
The actor will play a businessman in the show, that will also star Vatsal Seth and Nikita Dutta.
Shedding light on the serial Siddharth, whose in-house production house ‘Cinevista’ has produced some of the biggest serials on Indian television including “Katha Sagar” and “Sanjeevani”, says it was not difficult to convince Zayed to make the transition from cinema to television.
“Firstly, Zayed is an actor totally open to all kinds of medium. Secondly, I have never treated television as secondary or a poor man’s medium. In our country, actors are known to see television as stepping stone to cinema. To me, both the television and film medium are equally important” says Siddharth.
In fact, Siddharth has just completed his second feature film “Hichki” for Yash Raj production with Rani Mukerji in the lead. His first feature film “We Are Family” starring Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.
Zayed, son of popular Bollywood star Sanjay Khan and brother to Hrithik Roshan’s ex-wife Sussanne Khan had been missing from the silver screen. The actor, speaking to TOI had confirmed the news but refrained from talking much about the project.
