Fawad Khan, however, had stood out in ‘Kapoor and Sons’ for his portrayal of a gay character, but Zafar has not yet thought of stepping into his shoes.
In an interview as reported by the Times of India, Zafar said, “If I play gay, it would only depend on what kind of role it is and the offer. I haven’t thought of it at all, because I haven’t been made any such offer.”
When quizzed about his feelings on being compared to Fawad, the actor responded, “It pleases me for a bigger reason: since the time I came in, I just didn’t think of myself. I thought that I was just one person.
There will have to be many like me who take this exchange of artistes between our two countries forward. And I feel very happy and glad that someone like Fawad is so well-received here.
I hope more artistes come and receive that much love and vice-versa.” It is pertinent to mention here that Ali Zafar’s ‘Kill Dill’ performed significantly bad at the box office in 2014. The actor is now will featuren in Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ this year.
