Furqan Merchant forays into Bollywood
While the B-Town is being ruled by the foreign imports, yet another young actor Furqan Merchant from the West is on his way to the tinsel town. Born in Quwait and bred in London, Furqan Merchant forays in the Bollywood with the movie Identity Card and will be paired opposite Tia Bajpai.
Furqan was approached by filmmaker Rahat Kazmi for Identity Card. "Frankly, I don't belong to the film fraternity and my family has a business of its own. It was only because of work that I came to Mumbai and I met Rahat Kazmi through a common friend. That's how we started talking about the film that he was planning to make. He saw potential in me and asked me if I would be interested in working in the film. And the rest as they say is history," says Furqan.
So had it not been for Rahat, Furqan doesn't think he would have been into films? "I don't think so. I have a lot of interest in the film industry and I'd have marked my entry anyway. And now one film down, I can proudly say that I am here to stay!" he adds.
