From an engineering aspirant to science graduate to theatrics enthusiast to a Bollywood actor; Zeeshan Ayyub has had quite a journey before entering Bollywood and is yet to create a big name in Bollywood industry. Zeeshan, who last appeared in Mission Mangal will feature as the main antagonist alongside Rajkummar Rao and Nusrat Bharucha in his next film Turram Khan. Zeeshan's role in Turram Khan could be a turning point in his career as he is portraying the role of the main villain.

Zeeshan Ayyub has gathered the audience's love for his unique performances in No One Killed Jessica as Manu Sharma, Raanjhanaa as Murari Gupta, Tanu weds Manu as Chintu, Raees as Sadiq, Kangana's brother Sadashiv in Manikarnika, and Nishad Roy in Article 15. Along with Zeeshan Ayyub, the Turram Khan cast includes Rajkummar Rao and Nushrat Bharucha who will reunite after nine years post their first film together (Love Sex Aur Dhokha). Turram Khan is slated for a January 2020 release and will have a social comedy theme.

"There is a lack of imagination in our industry," says Zeeshan Ayyub

Zeeshan Ayyub mentioned in an interview, "I have always got love and acceptance from both the industry and the audience. I am not underrated as an actor. I do get respect. But I hope to get more different kind of roles. I do feel there is a lack of imagination in our industry. What has worked in an actor's favour, mostly that kind of roles are only offered to them. I get less author-backed roles," (Source: PTI).
