Known for his role in Kuch Reet Jagat Ki Aisi Bhi, Zaan disclosed that he was invited to audition for the character of Tajdar in Heeramandi but couldn't make it due to prior commitments. "I had done Kyun Uthe Dil Chhod Aaye, which was set in a similar era to Heeramandi. My character Randheer was also a revolutionary with a poetic style," he said. Zaan shared that Moin Beg, the writer of Heeramandi, appreciated his work and suggested he test for Tajdar. However, Zaan was in London at the time and couldn't attend the audition.

Zaan also spoke about meeting Taha Shah and complimenting his performance in Heeramandi. He said, "I met Taha recently and praised his acting and success in Heeramandi. He's been hustling in the industry for 10 to 15 years, just like me. Working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali must have been an incredible experience for him, and I'd love to have that opportunity soon. In shaa Allah!" Discussing his encounter with Fardeen Khan, Zaan expressed his admiration, saying, "What can I say about Fardeen Khan? He is so good-looking and such a star. I'm thrilled about his grand comeback. When I met him recently, I told him I've been a fan since his 90s movies. He wished me the best, and it felt amazing."

Reflecting on the success of TV actors in Heeramandi, Zaan said, "I was so happy to see Jayati Bhatia ma'am in the project. We worked together in Naamkaran, and I still call her 'Momma.' I messaged her, saying, 'Momma, you did a fabulous job.' I'm also very happy for Sanjeeda Shaikh and other TV actors who did a great job. It’s wonderful to see TV actors being considered for such prestigious projects."

Overall, Zaan praised Heeramandi for its focus on woman empowerment, songs, writing, cast performances, and the entire ambiance of the project. "As a whole, I loved Heeramandi, it is all about woman empowerment. The songs, the writing, the cast, their performances, and the entire ambiance of the project were bang on," he said.

Zaan Khan has many popular shows to his credit, including MTV Splitsvilla, Naamkaran, Hamari Bahu Silk, Maitree, Kuch Reet Jagat Ki Aisi Bhi, and Kyun Uthe Dil Chhod Aaye. His candid reflections on Heeramandi and his interactions with its cast enrich his already notable career.
