Eijaz Khan: Ekta Kapoor is redefining films

What now?

Everything. ‘You can do anything only when you’ve lost everything.’ That’s a line from Fight Club. I believe that. I actually lost everything last year. I had to start from scratch. I didn’t have a penny to my name, I didn’t have friends, only minimal support from family. I went to Dharamshala and stayed there for six months. I feel refreshed. It’s nothing about taking it in my stride, and saying I’ll see what happens, being blasé about it. Nothing like that. I genuinely feel that everything happens for the best. If this was my journey with Shubh Vivaah and the vivaah was as shubh as it gets, that’s fine.

What’s your equation with Ekta now?

I haven’t seen her in a long time now. I spoke with her awhile ago. She has been the maker, the game changer of the Hindi television industry, she brought sagas in with Kyunki…. She has redefined television, now she is redefining films. The kind of films she’s making – from LSD to Dirty Picture to Once Upon a Time In Mumbaai… – these are pathbreaking films. You really can’t slot them into a particular genre any more. That’s the entire USP. I would love to be a part of any of her projects when it comes to television. She always gave me what I deserved. When I was playing Rohit Bakshi’s third brother in Kahin Toh Hoga, she gave me opportunities, challenged me with roles. Even now I trust her just as much. If there is something she thinks I am worth, she’ll ask me and we’ll work together.
