"I will star in the film..details of which will be announced officially next month," Zayed told reporters here.
To a question on why he chose to launch his own production company 'Born Free Entertainment' when he could have been actively involved in his father's company, Zayed said he and his father were temperamentally different in approaching issues. "But I will surely act in the film," he assured.
The 30-year-old actor said when he told his father about his plans to turn producer, he did not sound too enthusiastic. "He thought I was very casual and indicated that production was not a child's play. Now that everything is on paper and we are ready with our first film which has gone on floors this week, he has given me his best wishes and that means a lot to me," Zayed said.
Love, Breakups, Zindagi starring Zayed and his co-producer Dia Mirza is written and directed by Sahil Sangha, their partner in the production house.
