'My day will come'
Actor Zayed Khan believes his newborn son, Zidane, will bring him luck after duds like Cash and Speed.
How did you select your son's name?
I have named him Zidane because it means son. He has brought a dramatic change in my life. I am a complete family man now and loving it. Everyone in my family says that he looks like me. But I want him to have his mother's genes or he will be naughty.
What are your movies this year?
I am overloaded with work. I was in Jaipur where I am shooting for Yuvraj with Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Mission Istanbul is about to release.
You play a journalist in it. Right?
Yes, I have been following mannerisms of journalists, how they ask deadly questions and extract deadlier answers, sporting a smile.
Does that mean you've been giving more interviews?
Aaah, not really. But I had to do another kind of 'method' acting for Mission Istanbul. I had to put on 11 kilos.
Your last few films didn't work..
Guess I was plain unlucky. My day will come surely. Every artiste has to go through a bad patch. But I think with the arrival of Zidane, that's about to change. Already, I'm doing more quality movies and endorsements.. like I've taken up the White Mischief project because it was an innovative idea. And there's the License 2 Flirt virtual reality game attracted me.
