Zaan Khan, who is known for his acting skills, has reached great heights through his hard work and talent. The actor's stints as the lead in hit TV shows have always been praised by audiences. Be it his character Randheer Raizada in ‘Kyun Utthe Dil Chodd Aaye’ or Naksh Parekh in ‘Humari Bahu Silk’, his endearing personality and his acting prowess has always been loved by one and all. Only recently, the actor was lauded for his performance in his newly released music video ‘Tu Mera’ alongside Tulsi Kumar.
On the occasion of ‘World Theatre Day’, the actor opened up about his journey from theatre to the big screen and also about the difficulties acting in theatre. Zaan recalls his guru on the occasion of ‘World Theatre Day’ and also talks about life in it. He says, "I belong to Madhya Pradesh, where many big theatre festivals take place. ‘Ran Vidhushak’ is one of the festivals where I have worked. The late Habib Tanveer Sahab was my teacher, and his student Sarfaraz taught me afterward for the theatre. For many years, we have performed at Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal. Life is different in theatre. It teaches you many of life lessons and about stage presence as well."
He continued, "I have done theatre for one or one and a half years. But, there is no reach, fame, or money in theatre. For me, the theatre was like my schooling, and then I decided to move forward after gaining enough experience in theatre."

Talking about the difference between theatre and cinema acting, Zaan said, "Acting in front of the camera and acting in theatres are very different. Because in theatre there is no retake, whereas for cameras you can retake. In theatre, you have to be prepared; you have to remember every word and every line. There is also no scope for improvisation in theatre because the script is on point. And while you perform live for a theatre audience, sometimes they give an enthusiastic response and sometimes not. What I am trying to say is that, the validation and response for the performance in theatre’s stage is instantly instant!
Zaan concluded his talk by giving his opinion about theatre getting faded due to OTT platforms. He said, "Theatre was there, is there, and will always be there in our lives. Theatre moulds a person to become an artist. And then you polish your skills while doing shows, TV, and all. Theatre is the base to becoming a good actor."
