There is no doubt that Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Afzal Khan are the toast of B-town these days. How else do you explain the adoration that was showered on them today despite press conference getting cancelled at the last moment yesterday? But as you see the camaraderie between the two off screen, you get a feeling that what releases on the big screens on September 19 might just be an entertaining film.
Sonam and Fawad have both gone the whole hog to promote their film and Dubai’s Grand Hyatt was one such stopover for the Khoobsurat actors. As is customary, Sonam was asked about her role and she, predictably, insisted that it was a role she was always meant to essay. “It was specifically written for me. My sister kept me in mind and wrote this down. They wanted to expose my inner child.”
Pakistani actor Fawad Afzal Khan, Bollywood’s newest heartthrob, began the conversation on just the perfect note. ““I love Dubai. It’s khoobsurat.” We prodded him about the response he has received back home and pat came the reply, “I am happy that I am being widely accepted in Pakistan and India. The response is great and I have been talking to my directors back in Pakistan as well and they have appreciated my work in India.” If the media frenzy is anything to go by, you will see more of Fawad Afzal Khan in Bollywood.
