For the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion, ac­tor Mo­hammed Zee­shan Ayyub (above) has re­vived the rel­e­vance of be­ing a side­kick in a Bol­ly­wood film. But he couldn’t help get­ting into the boots of a jour­nal­ist, when it came to work­ing with ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan (be­low).

Delhi-boy Ayyub, who played the char­ac­ter of Sadiq in Khan-star­rer Raees says, “While shoot­ing for the film, one day I in­ter­viewed Shah Rukh sir about every­thing that peo­ple say about his Delhi days. Jaise sab ke­hte hain ki Hi­malaya pe Yeti re­hta hai par kisi ne dekha nahi. Waise hi Dilli me 15 pan­wari ke­hte hain ki unki ud­hari chal rahi hai Shah Rukh Khan pe but kisi ko sach pata nahi. Is­liye maine ek din Shah Rukh Khan ko kaha ki aap baitho, mu­jhe aapse kuch sawaal puchne hain.”

Zee­shan says post his con­ver­sa­tion with Khan, his re­spect for him fur­ther in­creased: “Every­one knows about his jour­ney that how he was a no­body in Delhi, and rose to stardom. But he told me that not many peo­ple know that when he started his act­ing ca­reer in Mumbai, he did a lot of art films be­fore shift­ing to com­mer­cial cin­ema.”
