The world of film and TV is full of glitz. When people come here to make a career, they get attracted to the glamorous lanes of showbiz without knowing the dark truth of it. Casting couch is common in this field. Though it is not easy to forget its pain, some actors come out of it stronger than ever. Something similar happened to TV actor Fahmaan Khan, who became a household name with his show ‘Imlie’.

Fahmaan came to the city of dreams in the year 2014 when he got his first serial. He had to wait for 8 months to join the show and for the time being, he lived in a 2 BHK flat with 17 people. The actor told, ‘At that time, the situation was such that even sugar had to be kept locked in the cupboard.’

After waiting for a long time, Fahmaan was fired from the project. The actor said that it was the most depressing time of his life. Fahmaan told that he felt like he is so bad people were not taking him in their shows. His condition was not right and he didn’t talk to anyone about it.
