With many small screen actors making it big in Bollywood, actor Eijaz Khan believes the line between TV and big screen is blurring.

Yami Gautam, Prachi Desai, Ronit Roy and Ram Kapoor have found
success on the silver screen.
Eijaz, who has worked in movies like Tanu Weds Manu and
Zilla Ghaziabad, believes the trend of TV stars crossing
over to Bollywood is here to stay.
"Finally, TV actors are doing good on the silver screen
and they are being received well by the audience. The thin
line between a TV actor and a movie actor is blurring.

Eijaz is dating Canadian singer Natalie Di Luccio for
quite a sometime and the duo are planning to get married soon.
"God has really been kind to me. He gave me whenever I
needed something. He gave me a very sweet person Natalie, who
is a loving and caring person. Now, I have learnt to enjoy
each day of my life," he said.
