In an interview with a leading daily, Ek Bhram – Sarvagun Sampanna actor talks about how times have changed for male actors in the TV industry. Read to know what he said.
Actor Zain Imam has been a part of several shows like Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan, Tashan-E-Ishq, Naamkarann, Ishqbaaaz and others. The actor also participated in the reality TV show Khatron Ke Khiladi 9. Currently, Zain Imam is playing the lead role in Star Plus show Ek Bhram – Sarvagun Sampanna alongside Shrenu Parikh.
Zain's character in the show is very important. In an interview with the Indian Express, the actor got candid about how the roles for male actors are not like they used to be earlier. Zain told the daily, "Actually, you are right, times have indeed changed. Male actors are no more mere furniture in a show."

When asked after KKK 9, does he plan to do any other reality show or not, Zain said that hasn't thought much about it.
The actor said, "Honestly, I never felt that reality shows were all real but Khatron Ke Khiladi was a show that I really wanted to do. When they called me, I was like give me less money but I will definitely do it (smiles)."
