New Delhi, Oct. 6 -- Along with being a passionate actor, Sehban Azim is an avid reader too. The Thapki Pyaar Ki actor shares that his parents' reading habit influenced him immensely. 
 
"As a kid, I saw my parents reading all the time. So, that influenced me to pick up comics and books to read," he says.
 
Sehban, who currently plays the role of a cop in a TV show, adds, "As a kid, I used to love reading comics and magazines. Archie, Noddy, Phantom, Mandrake, Superman, Batman, Tarzan, Champak, Chacha Chaudhary, and the likes had a major influence on me. But I used to find novels boring, as there were no pictures, and it was much later that I fell in love with novels."
 
Ask him about his favourite authors and Sehban says, "Enid Blyton, Paulo Coelho, Jeffrey Archer, Sadat Hassan Manto, Munshi Premchand, Jhumpa Lahiri and Isaac Asimov are a few of them." The actor shares that he is currently hooked on the book The Alchemy of Desire by Tarun J Tejpal.
 
Reportedly, Sehban will be seen in an upcoming show starring actors Jennifer Winget and Harshad Chopra. However, when questioned on the same, he refused to divulge details.
