Fardeen Khan Recalls His Father Feroz Khan Took Loans For Films, Adds Facing Heavy Financial Crisis

Fardeen Khan recalls his father, Feroz Khan took loans for producing films

In a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Fardeen Khan looked back on his childhood and revealed how realistically he was brought up, despite being the son of a filmmaker and producer. He revealed how his father, Feroz Khan took loans for films, from his personal finances, that ended up making an impact on the family’s expenses as a whole. Expressing how he witnessed tough times owing to financial crunch, Fardeen said:

“My father turned producer with his first film, Apradh, which released in 1972. In those days, you were personally financially responsible. Producers were taking loans to make their own movies on high interest rates, and it was scary for everyone. Yes, we have seen days that have been difficult. My upbringing was very real. In fact, we were shielded as much as possible from the industry… not made to feel entitled at all about having a parent who was famous.”

Crediting them to be utterly self-made all their lives, Fardeen added how his parents never let him feel the pressures of insufficient funds. In his words:

“We were left to our own, we had to manage. Both my parents were working, both self-made. My mother too, she was with Air India for about 9 years. She was a flight attendant. She has also worked, she supported her family. My father is self-made. They know the value of things. They know how hard it was to get things done. It was very important for them to teach us.”
