Unlike his father, Zayed Khan would not want to act in a historical show. Ask him how TV is flooded with historical shows and if he would be interested in producing a show on Tipu Sultan or playing the lead role in it and he denies it. He says, "If I was making a film, I would definitely want to play Tipu Sultan, but not if it is being made into a TV show. Historical shows can never be justified on TV. My father made Tipu Sultan when there was only one channel, so there was high demand and less supply, which isn’t the case right now. Also, today, they have budgets for the first few episodes of a historical TV show, in which you see grandeur and then, the rest of the episodes are only about close-ups and mid-shots. A historical has to be grand like 'Padmaavat' and so a film canvas can justify it. Also, if an actor is doing a historical show, there is not much growth for him."
