Playing Kabir in Laut Aao Trisha pysched me up - Eijaz Khan
Eijaz Khan, who is playing a light hearted role in Sony TV show Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaage, says the genre was something which made him take it up. “ For when I played a complex cop in my last show on Life Ok Laut Aao Trisha, I invariably carried him home, which took a toll on my personal life. I would remain edgy and even snap at my then girlfriend Natalie Di Luccio and my staff. I guess I started to internalize my character Kabir and the fact that I would do those nightmare scenes of Kabir's wife and child’s death before pack up. I would also read the script before sleeping, which didnt help matters. I continued to carry Kabir’s burden in real life even after the show wrapped up. Eventually I also visited a psychologist to understand what was happening to me and she told me that playing the cop had brought about certain repressed childhood memories to the fore.”
Eijaz has been around TV and film for many years now, doing shows and films like Kkavyanjali, Kyaa Hoga Nimmo, Tanu Weds Manu and Zilla Ghaziabad etc.
