One actor who has stood the test of time on Indian Television has to be Iqbal Khan. The actor, unlike the other TV actors, started it out on the big screen and later moved to the television industry. His first movie was Fun2ssh which was released in 2003. 9 years on, Iqbal is still considered a strong force in the small screen industry.
Born on 10th February 1980 in the scenic area of Jammu and Kashmir, Iqbal completed his schooling at Lawrence school in Sanawar. He first appeared in Falguni Pathak’s video Indhana Mirwa. His real break came when he did the Balaji telefilms serial Kaisa Ye Pyar Hain. He became an instant hit across the country as his character of the cool guy Angad, was very well received by the audience. Continuing his association with Balaji telefilms, Iqbal appeared in Kahiin To Hoga, Kavvyanjali and Karam Apnaa Apnaa. He took a break for a short while, only to return in a grand style with Chhona Hain Aasman.
The actor has made sporadic serials thereafter, appearing in Waaris, Sanjog Se Bani Sangini and the recent Yahan Mein Ghar Ghar Kheli. He is married to Sneha, whom he met during the filming of his video for Falguni Pathak.
