The very handsome, and talented. That’s how the people who’ve watched Fawad Afzal Khan in Pakistani tele-serials or movies would describe him. Now, the actor is bound for Bollywood.
Buzz is that Fawad Khan has been roped in as the leading man opposite Sonam Kapoor in the Hindi remake of the 1980 Hrishikesh Mukherjee film Khubsoorat. The film tells the breezy tale of an extrovert, feisty girl who brings about changes in the regimented atmosphere of a household controlled firmly by its overbearing matriarch.
While Sonam Kapoor plays that motormouth, Fawad Khan will expectedly play the bachelor who falls for her.
The story mostly revolves around Sonam’s character, no doubt, but Fawad, too, will get to make his mark. Given his acting credentials, we hope him to have a winning start.
To give you a little lowdown Fawad Khan: he has worked in tele-dramas like Humsafar, Dastaan, Ashk and Zindagi Gulzar Hai. He also played the character Sarmad in the popular Pak movie Khuda Kay Liye. He was also the titular hero in the movie ‘Armaan’. He won awards for both these roles. Now, with ‘Khubsoorat’, he has taken a leap.
The shooting of ‘Khubsoorat’ has already begun in Bikaner, Rajasthan. The film is being directed by Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor.
