Fawad Khan: I won’t be a chameleon and change my colours just because I’m working here
Fawad Khan is one of the most good-looking men today, dominating popular culture in both India and Pakistan. The suave actor has not only managed to impress fans in India and Pakistan but has also kept his moral values intact.
Fawad Khan made headlines and attracted undue attention when he refused to shoot intimate scenes with Alia Bhatt for Kapoor and Sons. The movie also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Rishi Kapoor in central roles with Fawad Khan.
Fawad again made headlines when news started doing the rounds that he had also refused to film kissing scenes with Sonam Kapoor for another film with her, titled Battle for Bittora. It was also being reported that Fawad Khan was being replaced for his refusal to shoot the scene, with Farhan Akhtar.
In an interview to an Indian TV channel, this is what the Pakistani actor said:-
“I’ve mentioned that a couple of times before as well. Because it will not appeal to the sensibilities of my audience back home. I have to go back and work there [Pakistan]. I won’t be a girgit (chameleon) and change my colours just because I’m working here. Well, that’s my point of view,” said Fawad.
“See, doing intimate scenes is something I’m uncomfortable with right now,” he added. Fawad Khan did lock lips with Sonam Kapoor in Khoobsurat, the movie that helped him bag the Filmfare award for Best Debut (Male).
Well, it seems like Fawad Khan will not mince his words when it comes to talking about his ambitions, with regard to the Indian film industry. Let’s hope his frankness and straight-forwardness does not miff or put off any film directors who were potentially looking to cast him in a movie!
