Zeeshan’s Bollywood fundas
Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub (right), who has been part of films such as Raanjhnaa (2013) and Phantom (2015), says that his friends had initially told him he was an independent film material. “When I moved to Mumbai, people told me I will get work, but in independent films only, and that I won’t make it big as a commercial actor,” says Zeeshan, a National School of Drama alumnus. “Most of my films are commercial. When actors like me do commercial projects, the independent artists get a window to enter commercial cinema,” he says.
