He started his modelling career at 24, when it's time for most models to retire, or at least start looking for an alternative career. His Bollywood break happened with the movie, Joggers' Park, at 28. He started his modelling career at 24, when it's time for most models to retire, or at least start looking for an alternative career. His Bollywood break happened with the movie, Joggers' Park, at 28. The confidence stems from the fact that though not from a film background his first commercial for Cadbury Perk was with none other than Priety Zinta. After which he shot for brands like ICICI, Bombay Dyeing, Maruti Alto, Ariel, Ponds and Gillette wherein Khaled worked alongside faces like Bipasha Basu, Mahima Chaudhary and Lara Dutta.

A recognisable face on TV, with his second film, The Film, opposite Mahima Chaudhary, Khaled hopes to make his mark as an actor. "The film is about seven guys who dream about making a movie. It deals with their aspirations and the trials and tribulations they undergo to realise those dreams," informs Khaled.

Struggling hard to get noticed? Sounds very much like Khaled's real story. Does he relate to the character? "I play an assistant director in the film who hails from a small town background and had to suffer a lot. In real life, my career has been without any hiccups. It has been an easy and smooth journey so far," says Khaled. But that does not mean he didn't have to prepare himself for the role at all. "Nothing is easy," he is quick to add.
Working with Mahima was fun, he says, adding that he thoroughly enjoyed the shooting stint. "I knew her from our modelling days and discovered that not much had changed with her. In fact, we have matured and knew better how to interact with others this time," says the actor who counts Ram Gopal Varma, Subhash Ghai and Shyam Benegal amongst his all time favourite directors.

But is there a dream role for him? "No, I'd like to experiment and play all kinds of roles. I don't want to limit myself as an actor." Khaled is hopeful that the audience will wake up to his acting potential after the release of The Film. "We saw the monoprint with the songs and visuals. It has really shaped up well. We have done our best and hope you like it."

Next for him is Prakash Jha's Apaharan and Ho Sakta Hai with Victor Banerjee. He's hopeful to get more offers. background his first commercial for Cadbury Perk was with none other than Priety Zinta.
