Some Lesser Known Facts About Jameel Khan

  • Jameel Khan is an Indian actor who is known for his role as Santosh Mishra in the web series Gullak (2019).
  • He came to Mumbai to become an actor after completing his graduation and stayed in a one-room kitchen in Mumbai for many years.
  • While he was in school, he took part in many theatre competitions and won various recognitions for it including the Geoffrey Kendal trophy. He was a part of the Sabrang theatre group in Aligarh. He was also one of the founding members of the Indian People’s Theatre Association in Aligarh.
  • In 1992, he was a part of the crowd in the play Julius Caesar by Naseeruddin Shah‘s theatre group Motley. He has worked with him in other plays like Manto…Ismat Haazir Hain, Katha Collage, Safed Jhoot Kaali Salwar, The Caine Mutiny Court Marshal, Faust, and The Chairs. In an interview, he talked about his friendship with Shah and said,
    Nasiruddin Shah is my mentor and my friend for lifetime. One can learn so many things from him. My association with him is for 20 years now. Whenever I tell him that he is my Guru he always smiles. It is a privilege for me to have shared stage with such a genius.”

  • Being a Muslim, he used to fast before Eid. In an interview, he said that when he was in college, he used to play football tournaments while fasting. In the interview, he further said,
    I was in Sherwood College, Nainital for 10 years. There used to be a very elaborate spread for Iftaar and even for Sehri. My non-Muslim friends envied that spread but were always in awe of how we could go without even water for around 15 hours. I wonder how I managed to play football tournaments and sports while fasting.”

  • After completing his schooling, he wanted to pursue engineering, but he did not get enough marks to study that. Later, he started studying history at Aligarh Muslim University, but his father wanted him to appear in civil service exams. He also learned Urdu while studying in Aligarh.
  • In an interview, he said that he rejected the script of the web series Gullak initially, but later, he liked the story a lot. In the interview, he further said,
    You would be surprised to know I had initially rejected the role… After reading a few pages I felt it was like TV. The writer then asked me to hear him out. He narrated the entire story to me, and I felt it was great, something I should not let go of.”

  • Before winning the ‘Best Actor (Comedy Series)’ award for “Gullak” in 2021, he did not receive any honour for twenty-five years. In an interview, he talked about receiving the award after such a long time and said,
    I would like to believe that the biggest sign of success is to remain a working actor for the last 25 years and be recognised by the audience for our work. Award and stardom happen only to a few people but if the aim is to become an actor, then not the award but the acting projects and remaining relevant for the craft is important for me.”
