The actor is on the lookout for interesting parts now. “Till now I was working in my comfort zone and this show was a part of it too. I am thinking of working out of my comfort zone now. I have played a good, responsible, idealistic and honest person. These shades have always been played by me. So, I am looking out to work on some new shade,” he says.
Khalid is also a model and says that managing both acting and modelling is not challenging for him. “Earlier, there were categories like film actors, tv actors, models. But now everything and everyone has merged. There is no specialization and bifurcation. Actors are modelling, and they are doing TV too and TV people are doing films. I was always into advertising. I actually do one Tv show, 8-9 commercials and 1 film in a year. Everything gets pretty balanced,” he says.
In fact, modelling has always worked for the actor. “I was called laddoo face and Prahlad Kakkar gave me this name, which was Indian term for a Chocolate boy,” he says.
Mariam Khan took a time leap and the makers introduced well-known faces Param Singh and Mahima Makwana as the leap pair. However, while the show did receive acclaim, it was unable to fetch the required numbers and will reportedly end of January 11.
