Actor Zayed Khan says he is learning "the hard way". He was supposed to sing and dance to a solo number in the film Blue, but was shocked to be informed that he would not be the only one to feature in it.
The same song has been turned into a group number and is being shot with Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Katrina Kaif and, of course, Zyed in the film by Tony D'Souza.
"I'm learning my lessons the hard way. In this industry it's always the big fish eating up the little fish (an apt description considering our film Blue is an underwater sea adventure). Fine. Hopefully, one day I'll get there," said Zayed, who is shooting in Delhi for Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene.
"But when I do I can assure I won't behave the same way. But no more being taken for granted. I can't afford it," he added.
As for not participating in the number, he said: "I was thinking of not participating in the shooting. If I am not considered important enough, no point in hanging around. But then I decided to be professional about this. I'm flying from Delhi to Mumbai for the song."
Zayed, however, absolves the Blue director of all blame.
D'Souza says, "Yes, we're shooting a song with the entire cast next week. I'd really like Zayed to be part of it. Because he's a very important and pivotal part of Blue. This film will take him to another level."
