Zayed Khan is not only a great actor (ok, maybe not) but it is now known that he is also a great chef! In fact, he loves cooking so much that he said if he was not an actor he would probably be traveling around the world as a cook. His co-stars on the set of Anubhav Sinha’s Cash got the best of both of his talents, because in addition to acting he was also busy cooking for them all.
Apart from the above mentioned skills, Zayed also likes biking, singing and he especially enjoys doing his own stunts. He hates to have a body double do his stunts and likes the adrenalin rush he gets from performing them. In Cash, he performs an unbelievable underwater stunt but we will have to wait and watch because none of the details are being given out!
In a recent interview, as an actor, Zayed gave himself a very high rating as a romantic hero; 15 out of 10, but as a comic hero he gave himself only 4 out of 10, saying that comedy is the hardest genre to perform.
Just like in reel life, it looks like Zayed is a real life romantic hero (a 15 out of 10 perhaps?) too. He met his wife Malaika when he was just 15 years old and was instantly besotted and the rest as they say, is a Bollywood film. They got married in November 2005 and when asked about her, Zayed simply blushes!
Cash is the story about the heist of three unique diamonds and the race to get the “cash”. Zayed plays a small time con artist hired by Ajay Devgan to help him win the prize. Cash, which is set to release on July 27th, also stars Ritesh Deshmukh, Suniel Shetty, Dia Mizra, Esha Deol and Shamita Shetty.
