Zeeshan Ayyub confirms his next with SRK, decodes how it is working with the three Khans
Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub made his Bollywood debut with film ‘No One Killed Jessica’ wherein he shared screen space and experience with none other than biggies like Rani Mukerji and Vidya Balan. Since then he has been impressing us with his performance by doing quite a few supporting roles in various films. After six long years, Zeeshan is now all set to essay the protagonist in the film named ‘Sameer’. It’s a hard hitting film about a man who is wrongly framed in the case of terrorism. So in an interview with us, we asked him why did it take so long for him to bag a film wherein he could play the lead.
He answered, “I think my progress was very slow, but there were no jerks, it was quite smooth. It was not that I did one film and things changed. So many aspiring actors who happen to come in touch with me on social media tell me that my progress has been very gradual. And then I did not have any Godfather who would want to invest in me, creatively not financially. Plus, it is not that I did not get any offers but those were most sex comedies or a film that was a rip off of some other cult film that worked recently. Suddenly everybody wanted to follow that pattern and I didn’t want to do that. So films that were slapstick comedy were offered to me, but I was not interested in them. I wanted to do content driven films and coming from theatre background, I think about dignity first and then films.”
Further he also confirmed that he would be playing a role in Shah Rukh Khan‘s next film which is being directed by Anand L. Rai. Yes the one in which SRK is playing a dwarf. Zeeshan has been one of those stars who have bagged the opportunity to star with all the three Khans of Bollywood. He shared screen space with SRK in ‘Raees’, would be a part of Aamir Khan‘s ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ and was a part of Salman Khan‘s ‘Tubelight’ as well. So when asked how was it working with all the three Khans, he stated, “They are very different. I was fortunate to get an opportunity to work with all three and that too in last two years. When you discuss something with Aamir, it’s a great learning because he knows filmcraft, writing, he is a Perfectionist. Shah Rukh Khan is great fun on sets, he is very spontaneous and his wit is outstanding. And Salman Khan too is great fun on sets. He is a very nice man to spend time with. All three of them are extremely different. Where Aamir likes to fix everything and decide everything, Salman believes in spontaneity. A lot of improvisations happen then, while Shah Rukh is a mix of both.” (Also Read:‘Damage has been done’, says ‘Sameer’ actor Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub over CBFC)
