'I’m no longer linked with Aamna Sharif' | entertainment | Hindustan Times
ShariffRajeev-Aamna Rajeev Khandelwal and Aamna Shariff rose to fame But the relationship ended soon, as they quit television to pursue. Rajeev Khandelwal has opted out of a TV serial again! I have a fantastic relationship with the producers Tony and Deeya, so I left it to them to decide Another obvious question are Aamna Shariff and you just friends?. Last evening, Rajeev Khandelwal 'officially' said goodbye to 'Kahiin To The time is right to chat up with his 'good friend' Aamna Shariff on.
Haq Se was a web-series but nowhere did the makers cut corners. I was mounted like a film, bigger than the film projects I worked on and the budgets were high. We shot in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh and other scenic spots. Ken gave the show close to ten months. He took time to get every character and nuance right. How was it like working with Surveen Chawla? Surveen is a fab person. Both of us do not need to fake before one another.
I can be totally myself before her.

I do not meet very often post shoot but every time we speak on the phone or text, we take off from where we left with our interaction in Manali. I feel our friendship will continue for many more years. You had a great debut with Aamir but your Bollywood career post that was somewhat bumpy. In retrospect, do you feel you could have done something better? They will also be close to my heart. They were all interesting projects. I'm happy that I am the only who did films, TV and web with successful projects in all the mediums.
I was also a host. Very few have a career like this. I have done six to seven films with a success rate of 50 per cent. Yes, while Shaitaan and Table No 21 worked, Fever did not. There are many others with a lesser success rate but they are in the news with lot of PR activities, being in the news for their party appearances or magazine spreads. Social media is a such a huge platform but you seem to be very inactive on it when others are using it to the maximum It is different to be active and to be a salve.
I don't feel the need in the morning to reach out to people telling the world what I am doing. My priority is me. What others are doing maybe the need of the hour, but I can't sell myself for more followers. I do interact with people on the roadside and give fans a lot of time say when I flying. If I am in plane and the person sitting next to me compliments me, I make sure I chat up with that guy or girl for around an hour. That is my way of interacting. I tried to show it as 5.
I'm not doing the 2nd season of Time Bomb. Where do you go from here?
I'm doing a cameo in Sony's CID. I'll hold back as long as I can. I'll try not to do routine stuff as long as I can. I won't do something mediocre. I want to work with intelligent people. You've said, never again with Ekta?
I never said that. I won't go back to Kahiin To Hoga. It's over for me. I don't know how people started these rumours about. I'm sure they too would never want me back. But if she offers me something I like I don't mind going back.

You made a helluva difference to Kahiin To Hoga. I won't be modest. I know how popular Sujal was. We've been offered a number of films together.
'Marriage to Aamna? I don't know'
But it has to be something worthwhile. I've been offered a number of films. But I can't relate to them. I haven't heard something that excites me. Either it's a sex comedy or a meaningless romantic film. Why don't they ask me to do something that'd justify my presence?
I don't want to be in films just to encash on Sujal's popularity. I'm following my heart. I'm not here to make a difference. I just want to do what I believe in. Right now I'm taking a month's sabbatical. I don't think I gave a mind-blowing performance as Sujal.
'I’m no longer linked with Aamna Sharif'
But I poured my heart into it. I used behave like Sujal off-camera. My character had to die before it got corrupted. I want to break the rules. I've enough money to survive comfortably for 6 months.
It's not on the cards for a long time. It can happen any time. My younger brother recently married out of the blue. It may happen to me too. Is there a lady in your life? As of now, no. I had no choice but to take the risk. No one was planning a magnum opus for me. It was very important for me to get noticed in my first film.
I also had to fight with the mental block that TV guys cannot make it in films. Most of them said get a bigger name. No one was ready to take the risk. It was said that before Aamirno producer was keen to sign you on because you barraged them with questions. Yes, I was or I could have.
I quit shows, I took several breaks. The idea was not to own a five BHK or a palatial house in Mumbai or buy a limousine. You have been a documentary filmmaker. My involvement in any project has nothing to do with my past. I made a documentary in Delhi because I was looking for a source of income.
By default I got into it. Actually, I love writing, conceiving ideas and putting them on paper. Did they bring you money? That was just for survival. When I came to Mumbai, I had a debt of Rs 50, I came here to sell one of my projects in which I had pumped in all my earnings.
