For now, all of Fawad Khan's energy is concentrated towards making a career in filmdom, says the Pakistani actor-singer who is making his Bollywood foray with Khoobsurat. He enjoys a huge fan following in his homeland, and in India, courtesy channel Zindagi, which airs Pakistani TV shows, he's found fans galore here. But TV is not Fawad's priority as of now. "I would want to stay away from TV right now. I have done as much as I could...," Fawad Khan said.
"I'm a very big fan of Hollywood. I really like what's happening there right now, where the marriage between cinema and TV is amazing. Things are changing here (in India), but it's only the tip of the iceberg, it's just started," he added.
The actor, who has been part of TV shows like Humsafar and Zindagi Gulzar Hai, says he's entering cinema "because I get to learn something from it". In India, Fawad is making his Hindi film debut with Khoobsurat, which stars Sonam Kapoor as the female lead. The fact that it's a movie driven by the female character, did not make him apprehensive about taking up the role.
The process of choosing the film was "pretty easy" for him. "I didn't have any apprehension working in a female-centric film as I have done this back at home. It all depends more on the content, director and co-actors you work with," the 32-year-old said.
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, Khoobsurat is the remake of 1980 super-hit film Khubsoorat.
