Mumbai: Reality show star and actor Ajaz Khan has caught Sanjay Gupta`s attention. The filmmaker has offered the former a role in his new gangster film `Mumbai Saga`, which already has John Abraham and Vivek Oberoi in the cast.
The two met Tuesday morning at Gupta`s residence and hit it off right away.
Ajaz is grateful and joyous.
"So many top directors have promised me fantastic roles. Forget fantastic roles, they`ve never returned my calls after the initial promise. Sanjay Gupta called me home for 20 minutes and spoke to me like a buddy for two hours, offered me respect, love, food, juice and, above all, a role," he said.
He feels rejuvenated.
"I feel my faith has been restored in this industry. I`ve been betrayed and stabbed in the back too many times. Here, finally is a director who has the guts to cast a Khan who is not a superstar," Ajaz added.
