  • He appeared in the popular Netflix web-series, ‘Aarya,’ in which he played the role of ACP Khan in 2020. In an interview, when he was asked about playing a gay character in this series, he said,

I liked the way the character was written. Although, ACP Khan is gay, but the series neither sensationalize the fact nor does it portray it as a big revelation. It has just one normal scene where his partner comes to him with a tiffin and asks why he is so stressed at work. This is how we normalise things for the LGBT community. Someone’s sexuality cannot be his or her identity. Here, Khan’s identity is not ‘gay’ but a ‘cop’.”
