Good looking dude Zain Imam is in a happy space. After Naamkarann and Ishqbaaaz, he will next be seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi 9.
Says Zain, “I have always been an adventurous person and will not baulk at any challenge. Also this is only reality show which is not rigged; hence I always wanted to be a part of it despite lesser money.”
“However this Colors show really pushes you hard. I have fear of heights, so imagine my plight having to jump from the 15h floor. At such a time you just want to give up. But here host Rohit Shetty really egged us on saying we should just do it, for the organizers have ticked all the safety boxes,” he says.
“Battling all those slimy insects and rats also takes away a lot of your energy and spirit,” he adds.
When asked about the fear which gnaws at you seconds before the stunt, the tall and lanky lad avers, “We all go through it. But then again you have to overcome your fears to get ahead, which I think have done so far.”
Looking ahead Zain will soon start shooting for a Star Bharat project, “I will not give out any details; it is better you enjoy the end product.”
Zain who was also recently judged as #3 in an online actor poll, thanks his fans for all the love and support. “Both Tashan-E-Ishq and Naamkarann got me fame not only in India but overseas, especially U.K., Pakistan and Bangladesh. I also am heading for Vietnam for a poll which again puts me in the top 3 Asian actors’ bracket. ”
One thing what Zain fans like the most about him is his level-headed approach to life despite getting some much fame. “Yes I always make it a point to be polite and respectful to the one below me, for I have seen success getting to the heads of several actors who then have to eat humble pie. This positive trait will definitely keep giving me edge in the long run as well.”
Although Zain loves his fans, he has one grouse that, “Few of them get so much smitten by the character forgetting that we are different in real life. Also crossing the line and interfering in my personal life is not done, period. Some of them get very personal and this is not done. I respect my fans but guys, live and let live. It’s a ‘No’ to spreading negativity.”
Way to go, Zain!!
