A boy from the small town of Panna in Madhya Pradesh. When he was 12, his father died. The financial situation of the house was so bad that he had to work for a few months in a cycle shop and for a few months do repair work on motorcycles. Not only that, they also sold eggs by setting up stalls.
Then time changed in such a way that today this boy has made his own identity in Bollywood. Everyone knows him for his acting and dialogue. When you read the full story, you’ll know how the short boy became a well-known face in the film industry when faced with this situation.
“Say something… I asked for two cups of tea, I haven’t come yet.” In fact, we are talking about Ishtiaq Khan. It is his dialogue. On June 10, he has a movie ‘Release in the Public Interest’. Who through comedy, laughter and drama, explaining serious topics like sex education, the need for condoms, abortion and contraception to society.
Ishtiaq says he had been interested in music since childhood. August 15, January 26 is used to teach songs to children in schools.
Actress Nusrat Bharucha is in the lead role, whose father character is played by well-known actor Ishtiaq Khan.
Regarding his journey, Ishtiaq says: “When he was 12, his father died. The entire responsibility for the house fell to the mother. There was a bike shop in front of the house. I worked there for a few months. Then began to repair the motorcycle. Also sell boiled eggs in winter.
Ishtiaq says – I was interested in music since childhood. Due to financial constraints, he used to go to schools in Panna on August 15 and January 26 to teach songs to children. It would have made money.
Ishtiaq Khan tells a story from 1990 about the journey from the National School of Drama (NSD) in Delhi. They say it was a coincidence. In fact, a dholak wala was required for a street performance in Panna. The one I wanted to play didn’t come, so I got the chance. Then one day another actor didn’t come, so I had a chance. From there, I turned to the theater. After that, I never looked back.
How to get to Ishtiaq Bombay? With that, he said, I liked to play. I didn’t want to go to Mumbai, but I needed money to survive.
Ishtiaq describes himself as a weak student. It is said that he was very weak in studies. The woman helped finish the baccalaureate. The director of a theater troupe offered to go to the NSD. For this, I began to prepare myself.
Ishtiaq tells an anecdote from NSD. It is said that I was to play the role of a Pandit in a play. Even after the show was over, I used to go to the market with sandalwood tika and an outfit. I liked
How to get to Ishtiaq Bombay? With that he said – I liked to play. I didn’t want to go to Mumbai, but I needed money to survive. I didn’t want to do anything else. I have worked in many places where the pay was less than a daily wage. I want the government to think that if someone faints from drama school then they can be helped financially. I had to come to Mumbai when the money was needed. For the first time, I had my chance in the film ‘Agyaat’ by Ram Gopal Varma.
As Ishtiaq Khan says, actors like us have to pass exams every time. You have to be perfect for each role.
As for the biggest challenge of stabilizing in Mumbai, says Ishtiaq – finding work is not a big deal. It can be easy if people like us don’t have financial constraints. The biggest problem is the number of days you go to work. That decides how many days you can stay here? The same thing happened with me. The struggle was also how long I could stay here. How many days do I have money to survive?
There were times when Ishtiaq was frustrated. They say – it always happens like that. I never wanted to come back from Mumbai, but every time I want a role, I get offered too, but it gets out of hand. This happened several times. Every third actor has to deal with this in Mumbai.
Regarding the biggest challenge in acting, says Ishtiaq – It’s such a job where actors like us have to pass exams every time. You have to be perfect for each role. That’s when you get the job. Many actors have gone above and beyond. My journey continues.
Ishtiaq believes that after the advent of the OTT platform, players like him started getting more space.
Ishtiaq Khan is known for making people laugh, putting on comedy, and dealing with serious issues with ease. He says – this industry has a different trend. If I did comedy in a movie, that role was a hit, then any director would consider me fit for the same kind of role, which results in the loss of an actor. The role in which the audience accepts the actor, the director wants to serve for this role. There are very few directors who offer someone like that for different roles.
To avoid this label mark, Ishtiaq prefers to make films of his own. He says – every day I can play many roles, but I want to do what I love.
Regarding the father character in the movie ‘Janhit Mein Jaari’, Ishtiaq says – When the script came to me and I was told that I had to play the role of Nusrat’s father, I felt that he had come to the wrong person. I am so small in size. What will fathering a big girl like Nusrat look like?
Ishtiaq Khan has also repeatedly faced body shaming regarding his personality and height. He says there are many roles available due to low height, while many such roles are unavailable due to poor height. Even if I want to be a hero, I can’t.
Ishtiaq says about Rajpal that he is a stable person in the industry. I become stable. Their working style is different.
The film “Ardh” by actor Rajpal Yadav was also released. Ishtiaq says about Rajpal – he is stable in the industry. I become stable. Their working style is different. The only similarity is that we are both the same size. I want to do theater, not comedy.
Ishtiaq believes that after the advent of the OTT platform, players like him started getting more space. They say those who are big stars have different strengths. People only come to the theater after hearing names like Salman, Akshay.
OTT brings character-based films to audiences and actors like us are also becoming a brand. The fame has now been picked up by the OTT platform. Now the star is OTT and the story is told by actors like us.
Many Ishtiaq Khan movies – Khuda Hafiz-2, Maidan, 1.5 Lakh Ka Dulha are coming in the next few months.
