Eijaz Khan has been part of some very popular shows like Kkavyanjali, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Bhaskar Bharti. Last year, he participated in the reality show Bigg Boss 14 and quickly became one of the favourite contestants amongst the audience. He recently shared how the popular show has affected his life, as his fans got to know a more personal side of him when he participated in the reality show.
"It is one of the most popular shows. It is one of the most popular platforms to showcase yourself. I think till then, people only knew a part of me that was only showcased by the media. What I was asked, that was what I expressed, so that was the perception people had of me. In Bigg Boss, you can't really act, so I guess people got to know the real me," he said.

As for how the reality show has changed his career, he said, "I have mixed feelings about it because I don't think it has really changed my career because I don't think I am going to pursue reality TV shows as a career option. I've always been an actor and I'll always be an actor. I think popularity is what it gives. I am very grateful for it. I think that is one thing that has made a difference."
