Eijaz Khan talks about politics in the industry and why he did not get his due in Bollywood

The television industry’s popular name Eijaz Khan was recently in conversation with a radio Siddharth Kannan where he revealed about working hi Bollywood and why he didn’t get that much fame.

Eijaz Khan is known for television shows such as Kkavyanjali and Kyaa Hoga Nimmo Kaa, he also appeared in films like Just Married and Tanu Weds Manu.

Talking to radio host Siddharth Kannan, Eijaz said, “I think politics are entrenched everywhere and there is nothing wrong with it. Just as Senior Inspector Wasim Khan (his character in the upcoming series City of Dreams) couldn’t grow and evolve with time and ended up being a victim of circumstances of the system, in the same way, I got trapped in being Eijaz Khan myself. Because there is a reason that you need to evolve in life, even as an actor. The more you are closer to yourself, the more you will get closer to a character.”

Talking about the popular TV reality show Bigg Boss where he appeared last year. Eijaz said that he took up the show because he wanted to ‘explore’ himself.

“Just like SI Wasim Khan is getting out of his self-made trapping from season one, evolving into someone else, a happier person, someone who looks forward to life, in the same way, that is for Eijaz. The same thing is happening. I am so happy,” he said.

When he was asked if politics come in his way he said, “Woh zaroori nahi hai woh humesha hota hai (It is not necessary that it always happens). It is just the kind of people that you align yourself with and the people you want to work with.” the actor also added that he does not understand those who do ‘politics’ at work. He also added that since in his life there is no space or tolerance for it, he doesn’t mind the politics around.
