What happened to three Khans of tellyland?
They were supposed to be the three Khans of tellyland.
They were an answer to Bollywoodís trio ó Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman. We are talking about Iqbal Khan
, Eijaz Khan and Cezanne Khan. These three actors were popular a couple of years ago on the small screen. But today they are almost forgotten!
While the Bollywood Khan team continues to soar on the popularity charts, the TV trio seems to have faded into oblivion. Well, the three guys can not be blamed for it. Thatís the nature of their medium. Television, as they say, is never about the actors, itís about the characters. If your character clicks, you suddenly get famous overnight. But the moment your show goes off air, the focus shifts off from you.
You are no more the popular star or even heart-throb you once were. Itís a fragile medium and we are sure Iqbal, Eijaz and Cezanne themselves may never have expected this turn of events.
Iqbalís Kaisa Yeh Pyaar Hai made him popular. His character Angad was liked. Iqbalís Bollywood debacle too was forgotten as he soared on TV. Then came Karam Apna Apna which he quit some time later. His mantra in his career has always been something like this ĎIf you promise me a particular kind of a role and if things donít go that way, Iíd rather gracefully quití. Sometime ago, Iqbal did Waaris, made by Smriti Iraani, a show touted to be his big return to TV. Unfortunately the serial ran into trouble with the channel. Iqbalís character, supposed to be the most important, was reduced and he naturally didnít take it well. Within a few months, the serial wrapped up. Apart from Waaris, Iqbal was also supposed to host a show. That too didnít take off.
Eijazís serials like Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka or Kkavyanjali may not have been very high on the TRP charts, but he was a household face three years ago. Movies became the next logical step for this Khan. He took a clean break from television and concentrated only on films. Sadly, his debut film as hero, Meerabai Not Out sank. His second film Bhanvraa, with other TV actors, too has got endlessly delayed. Eijaz seems to have realised his decision to quit television totally wasnít the best one and the actor is slowly returning back with Ssssh Phir Koi Hai.
Cezanne as Anurag Basu was loved by the womenfolk. But then when the serial was to take a leap, Cezanne chose to opt out. He wanted to pursue films. But movies didnít happen and the actor realised it was best to come back to TV. He did the show Ek Ladki Anjaani Si, but couldnít recreate the Anurag magic. Now he will be seen in a new show, based on the film Seeta Aur Geeta, where he plays Sanjeev Kumarís role.
Well, this is what tellyland is all about. Itís a struggle each time your show ends. Or should we say, a new beginning each time your serial wraps up. Nevermind your past laurels, itís always starting from scratch. We wish our small screen Khan-trio good luck, as they attempt to resurrect their careers on TV.
