TV actor Iqbal Khan, who will be seen in the forthcoming movie Unforgettable, says that he tries to keep himself away from television reality shows.

“When it comes to reality shows, never say never. But I have always tried to stay away from reality shows. I’m primarily an actor and I like to keep my personal life personal. I wouldn’t go for a reality show unless and until I’m penniless,” said Iqbal.

Unforgettable, directed by Arshad Yusuf Pathan, is shot entirely in UAE and will be premiered in Dubai June 11 and its global release is schedule for June 13.

But it wasn’t an instant decision to do the film.

“I took some time to think, whether I should do the film or not. We all should spend some time analysing, whether we should take the project or not,” said the 34-year-old who made his debut in films with Fun2shh… Dudes in the 10th Century in 2003.

The actor, who plays Anshuman Rathore in Tumhari PakhiTumhari Pakhi, shot for Unforgettable in Dubai and described it as “an enjoyable experience”.

The film has been produced by Shah brothers – Arshad and Zafar.

“Producers Arshad and Zafar are amazing personalities and good hosts too. I had previously worked with my co-star Kiran Kumar, so working with him was fun and wasn’t a problem for me.”

The actor, who has been working for the past 15 years, started acting journey with films and then stepped on to the small screen.

“I started my career as a production assistant. My first movie was Fun2shh…, in which I played Vicky as the lead with comedian Paresh Rawal. My second movie was ‘Bullet Ek Dhamaka’. I played the solo lead in that. After these two films, I started doing daily soaps.”

He has featured in soaps like Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai and Sanjog Se Bani Sangini.

The actor does not have set plans for future and will take projects as they come. Presently, he is having a good time working in Tumhari Pakhi. ”There are no future plans as such. I’m in a good space right now as my show Tumhari Pakhii is doing well and is number one show on Life Ok channel. I work for 28 days a month without complaining. I’m fully packed. I’d like to stick around with TV shows right now. I don’t want to quit,” he said.Subscribe to me on YouTube
