Star Plus’ Naamkarann will be coming to end this May on 18th. The Zain Imam and Aditi Rathore show dealt with the serious subject of infidelity and challenged the show who mistreats children born out of wedlock.
Incidentally, the shows end on the same day as Zain’s birthday and Zain isn’t sure if it’s lucky or unlucky for the show.
In an interview , Zain said that he will take the forthcoming journey positively. “It has been a fulfilling journey. I don’t know whether it’s lucky or unlucky for the show to end on my birthday, but I want to take it positively. I am grateful to God, as I have not been out of work.”
He further added that he will be taking a short break for a month or two before digging into work again.
Not many know that the actor worked for a corporate company before coming to Mumbai for modelling. Elaborating about it, Zain added, “Though I was always inclined towards joining the glamour industry, I never aspired to get into acting. I was happy modelling and doing ads. I come from a middle-class family and my parents gave me a year to make it or return home, as they had their inhibitions about me moving to Mumbai, alone.”
He continued, “I bagged my first commercial in the first month and assumed that it’s going to a cakewalk, but there was no work for the next five months and I exhausted my earnings. I used to spend days giving auditions. There was a time when I couldn’t find a house because of my single status and had to sleep in my friend’s car for days on end.
I was so busy finding a roof over my head that I couldn’t take up any work. Around that time, I decided to try my luck on TV, as the money was better than commercials. However, I had no professional training in acting and people would mock me at auditions. Instead of giving up, I vowed to improve my acting skills and prove them wrong. Though I struggled a lot in the beginning, once I managed to get a foothold, I started taking up challenging work. I came to Mumbai on April 12, 2014 and I am happy where I am today.”
Recently, Zain was in news for his statement on co-star Aditi Rathore wherein he stated that he would love to marry her.
However, clarifying his words, Zain said that his statement was misconstrued. “I didn’t mean it that way. What I said was misconstrued. We are good friends.” However, the actor remained tight-lipped when asked if he is in a relationship.>
