Actor/musician/entrepreneur/performer and recently-turned producer Ahsan Khan, says his hands are full with myriads of work projects and that now he aims to become more selective and choosy about his work.
Has Khan put his foot down on every other offer that comes his way?
“There comes a point in every artist’s career, that one just has to analyse and evaluate what he should be doing now that he’s established. My struggling days have long been over and only recently did I come to realise that I was doing shows, plays, drama serials, business ventures and films; all that without any break. As much as I am delighted to have found my niche in this industry, I believe now is the time to venture forth and experiment with the other aspects of my career. Having said that, I’ve become more selective and choosy about the kind of work that I do,” Khan said, while talking exclusively to Daily Times.
Khan, who has in the recent past lent his vocals to the OSTs of two of his drama serials aired on HUM TV and A Plus, seems to know no boundaries when it comes to flaunting one’s talents. “After being tentative about singing the title track for ‘Khoya Khoya Chand’ for HUM TV and for it to come out as such a big hit, was a major source of encouragement for me. Dua (Malik) was fantastic. The response paved me the way for me to sing the OST for ‘Marasim’ alongside the amazing songstress Humera Channa. I’m having a fabulous time, especially after my performances at the recently held HUM Awards in Karachi. Life is on a different high for me right now,” he said.
Talking further about his upcoming releases and projects in the pipeline, Khan said, “Without giving out any details, I’d just say that I’ve signed two really exciting films. I can’t wait for them to come out. Also, there are numerous other drama serials, but then again, like I said earlier, I’ve become more picky about the work that I take up now. The latest feather in my cap, I believe is to turn producer this year. I’m keeping it hush hush, so my fans are in for a big surprise.”
It is pertinent to mention that Khan was also the ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund this year; cause for a purpose that also carried out an energy crisis awareness campaign recently.
