Fawad Khan first made a splash in Bollywood with Khoobsurat, alongside the beautiful Sonam Kapoor. He then went on to win hearts with his performances in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Kapoor and Sons.
Recent reports suggest that since the end of his Bollywood stint, the actor is testing new waters, and the one to give him this advice was none other than, Karan Johar. A source revealed to Pinkvilla, “Although Fawad was initially sceptical of the idea, Karan told Fawad the cultural stereotypes of Asians playing cab drivers and terrorists had changed after Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood innings. That’s when Fawad got interested."
A close friend of the actor added, "This is all new to Fawad. He never wanted to step out of his comfort zone. But with nothing happening to his career in Bollywood and Pakistan, he will now move ahead to explore options in the West." Considering Bollywood was floored by the talented, good-looking actor, we can imagine him being a huge hit in Hollywood too!
Fawad is currently busy preparing for an upcoming Pakistani film, Maula Jatt 2, starring alongside, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Mahira Khan, Adnan Jaffar, Shamoon Abbasi and Humaima Malik. The movie will see the Humsafar couple Fawad and Mahira Khan reunite on the screen, and understandably fans can’t wait!
We wish for things to sort out and Fawad to re-enter Bollywood, but in the meanwhile, let’s hope he is seriously thinking of a Hollywood debut too!
