Eijaz Khan is one of the handsome and extremely talented actors. Eijaz Khan is a hot favourite among the small screen audiences. He is seen in most of the K-series soap in quite significant roles and is considered to be Ekta Kapoor's blue-eyed boy. He first made his debut with the hugely popular family entertainer 'Kkusum' in the role of Soham. And then the soap queen kept on repeating him in many of her shows. She has immense faith on the talent of this young actor.
Eijaz Khan really does not know what Ekta likes and dislikes about him but he believes the inevitable truth that everyone recognizes sincerity and hard work. And that is the reason that he has worked in quite a few Balaji serials and it includes biggies like 'Kkusum', 'Kesar', 'Kkoi Dil Mein Hain', 'Kkavyanjali', 'Kahin to Hoga', 'Kayamath' and 'Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka'. All his roles have been very dear to his heart and his character portrayal in each has been equally significant to the plot. Eijaz is a bundle of talent, who has always experimented with his roles. Before making his debut in the serial, this exceptionally good looking actor had performed in a number of stage shows with Ganesh Hegde
, Ashley and Lobo and many other choreographers. Though he is not a trained dancer but dancing is my passion.
In the serial 'Kesar' Eijaz Khan played the role of Abhi and was seen deeply in love with Kesar but never revealed his feelings to her whereas in 'Kkoi Dil Mein Hain' again; his character was completely different. He carried himself with loads of attitude and he married the main protagonist Kajal just to take revenge from her but later on falls in love with her. Later on he dies off, and his duplicate enters who is exposed at the climax of the show. In the hilarious comedy 'Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka'; he had portrayed the character of the eldest son of the Sehgal family who were stunningly rich. Initially he was a totally confused soul who loved his family. When his dadaji changed the will he was forced to tie the knot on a contract basis for a year with Nimmo the girl he hated the most. He was having a soft corner for his ex girl friend Natassha, but later on he falls in love with Nimmo and transforms into a mature and calmer person. At the end the lovebirds Kunal and Nimmo reunite thus giving the audience much relief. In another popular romantic entertainer 'Kahiin To Hoga' he was seen as Piyush's brother. Depicted as a calm and sober person with a heart of gold he falls in love with Kashish's sister Mehek, always supports her and marries her at the end. But then he was replaced in the show by a newcomer. Recently he was seen in Kayamath' in a cameo. His character was named Varun and he came to marry Prachi, the female protagonist of the show. Initially he was thought to be an idiot guy but later on it was revealed that he was already married to Swati (played by Anita Hasnandani). However just before his marriage took place with Swati, he was exposed by Neev (played by the Jay Bhanushali). However he loved his wife Swati a lot, and whatever he did was on someone's orders as Prachi's father was also not just to someone in his past.
Eijaz Khan's favourite venture however remains to be the very popular soap 'Kkavayanjali' which also stars his real-life love Anita Hasnandani opposite him. It also remains to be one of his favourite works. In the show he was first seen as a very loving and caring youth who falls in love with Anjali but then his on-screen death disappoints the audiences to the core. After a dramatic exit from 'Kkavyanjali', the dancer-turned-actor, Ejaz Khan is back in the show following with an equally interesting twist. He also claims that his comeback after his death in the show was quite interesting and he was shown as a totally changed man now. Later on he is portrayed as Dr Soham who is the look alike of Kavya. In the initial stages he was just opposite to what Kavya was, he supports Anjali to find out about Kavya's murderer, but later on he deeply falls in love with Anjali and transforms into a better person. The experience was very emotional and sensitive for him and he enjoyed his role very much. His powerful and sensitive acting, rocking style and boyish charms in this soap makes everyone go crazy for him. Above that he shares an excellent chemistry with Anjali, they both won the Best Jodi award for the show in the prestigious Star Parivar Awards Ceremony. Recently Balaji Productions has also roped in the hugely popular actor for its ambitious project that would see Eijaz Khan playing the lead. The show has been titled 'Khwahish' and this would be a story told against a Muslim backdrop. This Balaji project would mainly target the Urdu speaking audiences in Dubai, Pakistan and India. He plays the central character of Kabir Khan who is the son of a business tycoon in Dubai. Paired opposite him is a ravishing newcomer Priya Bhatheja, who plays Aafren Hussain, a law student in the show. In a turn of events, Aafreen has to shoulder family responsibility early and lands up in a job with Kabir Khan. The narrative soaked in dramatic events, which is also the trademark of Balaji shows and would be a story that promises a lot to watch for.
Eijaz Khan is a trained civil engineer and acting happened to him by sheer chance and coincidence when the Balaji productions discovered him. Apart from television soaps, he has done item numbers in movies like 'Kuch naa Kaho' and 'Zameer'. He is also undoubtedly the best dancer on Indian Television circuit and all his dance performances leave everyone mesmerized. Recently this hunk disappointed all his female fans by getting engaged to his long-cherished love Anita Hasnandani of Anjali fame. The couple met first on the sets of Balaji's super hit show 'Kkavyanjali' and then the new soap 'Kayamath' in which they play husband and wife. Both got attracted towards each other and they started dating. The romance finally took shape recently as Eijaz proposed to Anita and they got engaged. There is much to expect from this actor in the coming times and he is surely live up to the expectations of his huge fan following in the near future.
