In difficult situations and circumstances, actors don’t compromise on their work and that is the spirit which we need in every actor in the industry. Working with young actors, senior actors also feel like keeping their energy high like them. But due to the rising Covid-19 cases, the shoots have been relocated and most of them are now outdoor shoots which makes it difficult for the actors to shoot in rising temperatures. One such senior actor is Ayub Khan who is currently seen in Dangal TV’s Ranju Ki Betiyaan. He is one of those actors who is dedicated to his work and is constantly shooting while keeping regular Ramzan fasts.
Talking about how he manages his shoot schedule and his fasts, Ayub says, “I am regularly fasting for so many years when Ramzan comes, so it’s not that difficult for me. It’s pretty much manageable. The only issue that I face is lack of sleep. I get very little sleep as I have to get up early for the fast at 4am. After which I have to wait till 5.15 for Fajr Namaz. Then I immediately get ready for a 7am shift. This hectic schedule and these outdoor shoots in the sun keep me tired on the sets. But I am managing and I am glad that work still continues.”
Even after having such a hectic outdoor shoot schedule, Ayub Khan does not fail to keep his Ramzan fast and continues shooting because he knows his work is as important as his faith.
Ranju Ki Betiyaan is a heart touching story of a single mother Ranju and her struggles of raising 4 daughters in a patriarchal society. It delves into the various societal issues faced by single mothers, and will witness Ranju empowering herself to raise her four daughters single-handedly to help them achieve their dreams.
