Hussain Kuwajerwala: Rajeev Khandelwal brought transition for TV actors in Bollywood

Actor Hussain Kuwajerwala, who is set for his Bollywood debut with Shree, says it was Rajeev Khandelwal’s successful move from the small to the big screen, which brought in a transition for TV actors

“Rajeev Khandelwal brought the transition for TV actors. It was at a time when he got so many opportunities from TV, but it takes guts to say no to them. He was lucky that he even tasted success with his films,” said Hussain.

For that matter, even Ayushmann Khurrana and Sushant Singh Rajput are doing well. I hope even I get in that list,” he added. Rajeev had left his popular show Kahiin To Hoga at the peak to move to Bollywood with Aamir. He found critical acclaim, and has since then been a part of different films.

Hussain has his own fan following through the small screen thanks to TV shows like Kumkum and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. He was even a part of a live Bollywood musical Zangoora. An exceptional dancer, Hussain is very excited about Shree.

“Like any other actor, even I am very excited with my debut film. I am looking forward to a good and positive response from the audience. Everybody in this film is a first-timer, including the director and other star cast. I hope people like it,” he added. Directed by Rajesh Bachchani, Shree also stars Anjali Patil and is set to release on April 26.
