Bollywood actor, Fardeen Khan was in the headlines since he was spotted outside a salon in Mumbai on March 21, 2021, as everyone was stunned by his amazing weight loss transformation. In the pictures, the actor had looked dashing and back to his fit physique. Soon, it was revealed that Fardeen had gone through a well-disciplined weight loss transformation journey. The actor had lost 18 kilos in just six months of his rigorous training.
Isn't it astonishing? Well, it truly is, and soon Fardeen is all set to make his acting comeback in the Hindi film industry as he had confirmed the reports of his comeback himself in an interview with a leading news portal. The actor had confirmed that he could not wait to see himself back on the big screen and was excited to make his way back on a film set.
In an interview with ETimes, Fardeen Khan opened up about remaking his father and iconic actor, late Feroz Khan's blockbuster films. The actor revealed that soon he is going to be a producer, and remaking his father's hit movies is one of the biggest parts of his journey as a producer that is about to start very soon. However, he also opened up about the only fear he has in his mind about remaking his father's films, and it's quite understandable. The doting son explained that he doesn't want to harm the original film's legacy while remaking it, but at the same time, he has to offer a new angle to the audience. Thus, at times, changing the original film can be a major temptation. Reflecting on the same, Fardeen said:
"Yes, I do plan to do that. I want to live up to my dad's legacy. There have been some talks about remakes of his films. I can't name the titles yet, but I will be happy to share the details when things materialise. We have a great foundation to build on. The tricky part is how does one better the original. If I were to attempt a remake, the humble approach would be to not harm the original in the bargain. It will haunt me for the rest of my life if we tamper with the memories of the original films while trying to create a new version."
Going further in the same interview, Fardeen Khan shared his thoughts on his father, late Feroz Khan's way of doing things and called him a 'progressive' person. The doting son also added that his father had never posed his thoughts on the scripts and also had never promoted himself blatantly. Well, there's no denying the same, as these are some of the many reasons why Feroz Khan is one of the most respected actors of all time. Fardeen stated:
"My dad was extremely progressive in terms of how he presented his characters. His films were liberal and broke away from tradition. There were few filmmakers who were more advanced for their time, and he was one of them. He was a student of cinema and always very curious and learning and adapting to newer technology. Although he was progressive, he was never someone who promoted himself blatantly. He never tried to project himself or his films a certain way. He just did things the way he felt was right."
At the end of the interview, Fardeen Khan admitted that he would try his best to honour the legacy of his father, late Feroz Khan and once again talked about his vision and excellence. The actor praised his father for always presenting his actresses most beautifully and ensuring nothing was going wrong. Fardeen Khan is following in his father's footsteps, and no wonder he will be under a certain pressure because of Feroz Khan's mammoth legacy both as an actor and as a producer in Hindi cinema. Reflecting on his father's contribution to cinema, he said:
"Today, I don't know how much more progressive I can be, and I don't know if I will ever compare to my father. I don't know if I can be even an ounce of what he was. His contribution to cinema was immense. His ear for music, his eye for presenting his leading ladies as progressive and beautiful women and his yearning to bring home more advanced technology will be my inspirations when I don the producer's hat."
On the professional front, Fardeen Khan will be making his comeback with the film, Visfot after a gap of 11 long years!
