5 years ago

New Delhi: Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub’s memorable turn as Dhanush’s best friend ‘Murari’ in Raanjhanaa has earned him praise from everyone and the actor hopes that its success brings him new opportunities in Bollywood.

 

Zeeshan, an NSD graduate, made his debut as the negative lead in No One Killed Jessica in 2011. His performance was critically acclaimed and he followed it up with supporting roles in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Jannat 2.

 

Zeeshan’s dialogues in Raanjhanaa have been a huge hit with the audiences, finding their way to Facebook and Twitter.

 

He believes the film could be a turning point in his career.

 

"The response has been very good and not many are coming with cliche roles. There were two three such offers but I declined. I think things have changed a lot in Bollywood now, directors are coming up with interesting characters. They no longer slot you," said Zeeshan.

 

Having played hero’s friend in three films, Zeeshan now wants to move on to other interesting characters.

 

"I will not do hero’s friends anymore because I have done it thrice. There should be a step ahead but it does not mean that I will not do supporting roles. There are many interesting characters in different formats," he said. AGENCIES
