Cezanne Khan admits that he’s still recognised as Anurag Basu of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. And he doesn’t mind. “Kasautii... changed my life, so why would I want to break ties with Anurag?” argues Khan.
The reason he opted out of the soap was because of the generation leap. Now he has returned from the break. He said, “I was around, it’s just that nothing great was coming my way.”
He is back in the studio now shooting for NDTV Imagine’s show, Seeta Aur Geeta, in which he plays Suraj, the suave owner of an ad agency who falls for the simple Seeta.
“It’s the role Sanjeev Kumar played in the film,” he said excitedly. He was my favourite actor, he added.
As Anurag, he was a much-married man who loved all his wives. In real life, he’s an eligible bachelor. There were rumours of a relationship with Shweta Tiwari, that he refused to touch on. All he’ll admit is that like his role Suraj, he too is attracted to simple women”.
