‘Fans com­plain to me about my shows’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - YASHIKA MATHUR

Ac­tor Ayub Khan’s (right) jump to tele­vi­sion from films came af­ter he started get­ting meaty of­fers from the small screen, but he says that some of his fans have come up to him and com­plained about him for do­ing stereo­typ­i­cal daily soaps.

“Some­times I meet peo­ple who sort of rep­ri­mand me for the kind of shows that I am do­ing. They ex­pect me to be the one who dic­tates how the story of the show should go. It is a lit­tle dif­fi­cult to ex­plain to such peo­ple that it doesn’t work that way. So, I just agree with them and say that I will make sure that my next show will be bet­ter,” says Khan, who has worked in shows such as Ut­taran and Ek Hasina Thi.

The ac­tor adds that he does not get of­fended by such sug­ges­tions made by fans. “I can­not be of­fended by peo­ple ridi­cul­ing me. If they ridicule me, they have a right to that. This is part and par­cel of showbiz. I un­der­stand that there is a cer­tain amount of belief that fans have in me. I’m sure they want to see me do some­thing bet­ter be­cause they think I have the ca­pa­bil­ity,” he says.
