Har Shaakh Pe Ullu Baithaa Hai, a show about a corrupt politician, Chaitu Lal, in his madcap world is the first of its kind on STAR Plus. The channel along with Director Ashwini Dhir, is gearing up to offer its viewers slapstick comedy along with political satire through the show. As the storyline helps the show establish its base about common man’s worries getting unnoticed, satire helps to pinpoint them in a comical way.
Actor Ishtiyak Khan plays the character of Putan, who is Chaitu Lal’s brother-in-law on the show. The actor has Bollywood movies like Fukrey Returns, Tamasha and Anarkali of Arah to his credit which has won him recognition through the years.
Talking about his struggle to enter the industry, Ishtiyak revealed, “I had to struggle a lot in the initial years since I hailed from a small town in Madhya Pradesh. Not only that but because I am short, people always compared to actor Rajpal Yadav. I was expected to do roles like him since he had already made his mark in the industry. But I wanted to be different and leave my own legacy for the world to see.”
Ishityak Khan believes that through the show he can showcase his versatility and set a benchmark for himself. The actor who has portrayed various roles in movies is now set to star on the small screen for the first time.
