Ac­tor Zayed Khan, who was in Delhi to at­tend his friend de­signer Manav Gang­wani’s fashion show, shared his thoughts on the on-go­ing nepotism de­bate in Bol­ly­wood, and also spoke about his tele­vi­sion de­but.

About nepotism in Bol­ly­wood, the 37-year-old ac­tor said, “Isn’t ev­ery­body nepo­tis­tic? Hasn’t ev­ery­body com­ing up [in this in­dus­try] used their in­flu­ence to help their loved ones or keep their loved ones in a bet­ter po­si­tion? It is merely hu­man na­ture. Let’s not blow things out of pro­por­tion. We’re a free en­ter­prise. It’s sur­vival of the fittest. Nepotism is a new word that has fas­ci­nated ev­ery­body. Buckle up, dust your­self off, and move for­ward,” he says.

Zayed is soon go­ing to make his TV de­but. Speak­ing about his ap­pre­hen­sion on do­ing tele­vi­sion, he said, “I see tele­vi­sion as a lot of hard work. Why are we look­ing down on tele­vi­sion when it is the high­est pen­e­trat­ing medium? For me, my fans and their sup­port means a lot and I be­lieve that they will like me on TV. I want to be hon­est in my job. And I am com­fort­able [with] any medium if the work is good; it can even be dig­i­tal to­mor­row.”
