Actor Ishtiyak Khan says he was compared with actor Rajpal Yadav due to his short height when he entered showbiz.
The actor has featured in films like FUKREY RETURNS, TAMASHAM and ANARKALI OF ARAH. He is currently seen as Putan in Star Plus show 'Har Shaakh Pe Ullu Baithaa Hai'.
"I had to struggle a lot in the initial years since I hailed from a small town in Madhya Pradesh. Not only that… because I am short, people always compared me to actor Rajpal Yadav," Ishtiyak said.
"I was expected to do roles like him since he had already made his mark in the industry. But I wanted to be different and leave my own legacy for the world to see," he added.
Ishtiyak believes that through the show he can showcase his versatility and set a benchmark for himself.
