Fawad Khan is making waves in India with consecutive back-to-back hits such as Khoobsurat and Kapoor and Sons. He’s performed with a string of Bollywood celebs, from Sidharth Malhotra and Sonam Kapoor to Rishi Kapoor. However, in his latest interview with a popular daily, the Pakistani heartthrob stated that he would much rather be a rock star since it was a better experience than acting.
“I would love to be a rock star again, if I could find that talent and vocal chord in me which I’ve been looking very hard for all these years. I haven’t managed to find it, so I had to choose the life of an actor,” he said.
According to the Lahore-based actor, a rock star’s experience was much more enhancing than an actor’s and the best part was that musician’s got paid right after the show and left!
“I think a rock star’s life is so much more interesting. One day you’re here, the next day you are somewhere else. People go to a theatre and watch a film; but going to a live music show is the same experience multiplied by 10,000. The best part is that you are done with your job, you get your pay cheque and you leave (laughs!). For a lazy man like me, it’s a great choice,” he said.
It was in school that he found his love for music, where he performed with underground bands and stated that at the time, it was a cool time growing up. Here’s what Fawad Khan said about his school days and how non-serious he was:-
“I remember sometimes I would take a pillow to school. I would pull a couple of chairs together at the back, lie down and go to sleep and wake up only during roll call. I took pangas like that.Then I got into a rock band and we would perform underground gigs. It was a cool time to be growing up there,” he stated.
The actor also said during his interview that he never expected to become so popular in India and felt flattered by all the love that was showered on him by fans.
Fawad Khan is all set to appear in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which also stars Aishwarya Rai, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma as well as a cameo appearance by Imran Abbas. Fawad is currently shooting for the movie.
