A love story set during the pre-independence era, followed by India’s partition, Kyun Uthe Dil Chod Aaye required the actor to polish his Urdu and Sanskrit dialects to deliver an outstanding performance. Zaan admits how challenging it was to channel Randheer’s poise and style and to emote an era that most of the people today have only read about in books. The narrative of the show and the lifestyle of the characters witness the transition from the British rule to Indian independence.

Zaan debuted in Bollywood with Satyagraha (2013). Other than this, he also played a role in daily soap Jhalli Anjali Ke Tootey Dil Ki on Channel V, Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani and Bahu Humari Silk on Sony TV. He also starred in the movie Call for Fun (2017). The star also walks the ramp for various leading brands of the fashion industry. Hailing from Bhopal, India, Zaan understands how difficult it is for an outsider to get into the industry. However, he is specific about the work he undertakes and is looking forward to opportunities in the film industry. His current show is set to go off-air soon.
