“I miss Fawad Khan a lot,” says Kapoor & Sons director
Fawad Khan may not be able to work in an Indian film again, but there is no doubt he is surely being missed in Bollywood.
Shakun Batra, the director Kapoor & Sons, during an interview with Indian Express revealed his feelings saying that he misses Fawad and working with him and the fun he had while shooting for the film.
“I miss him a lot. I don’t know if I am supposed to be quiet about it… and I don’t miss him because of any other things, I miss him simply because he is a great guy and he is a lovely collaborator,” he said.
“We Indians who work around the world, we do it legally, similarly, if somebody else wants to work legally in our country, it should be open. It should be a two-way street”
The film starring Fawad Khan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Rishi Kapoor was one of the most refreshing films on 2016. Fawad even received Filmfare Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor, which was ultimately won by Rishi Kapoor.
Kapoor & Sons was Fawad’s second Bollywood venture after Khoobsurat in 2014. He also made an extended cameo in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
The films had contentious release in India due to escalating political tensions between both nations. Afterwards, Indian producers indefinitely banned Pakistani actors in Bollywood, while Pakistan banned the screening of Indian films.
