The Reluctant Fundamentalist left me heartbroken– Fawad Khan
Fawad Khan certainly has no dearth of female fans. After making it big as a musician in Pakistan and enchanting audiences in Pakistan and India with his famous drama serial Humsafar, Fawad has been on cloud nine ever since. Since making his debut in Khoobsurat alongside Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Afzal Khan has bagged a Filmfare award and the female following does not seem to end anytime soon.
The Pakistani actor most recently revealed that he was left heartbroken after he was unable to bag a role in The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Here’s what Fawad revealed in an episode of an Indian TV show titled Look Who’s Talking Season 2:-
“I came across this film where I was supposed to audition for. And that went on for a whole year. I wasn’t led on. (Pauses) Yeah! OK! I was led on for almost a year. I thought that I’d be a part of it some way or the other. So it was for this film called Reluctant Fundalmentalist. It was under consideration for like a whole year. Towards the end of the year, I suddenly realized that it was not working out. It was not gonna happen. I was heartbroken. I had waited a whole year and I parked my career aside to a film I thought I was gonna do it right. That’s when I got into TV with a vengeance.”
Not to be outdone or beaten, Fawad followed his ambition and started doing well in drama serials such as Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Humsafar. His fame soon spread to neighbouring India and very soon, he received the important call to star in Khoobsurat alongside Sonam Kapoor.
Fawad Khan is currently shooting for Kapoor and Sons along with Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt and actors Sidharth Malhotra and Rishi Kapoor. He also has a cameo role in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
