Fawad Khan is hailed as the heartthrob of Pakistan. However, he also enjoys a huge stardom in India. For the unversed, at the beginning of his career, he was a member of the alt-rock band, Entity Paradigm. Then in 2007, he made his debut with the Pakistani film, Khuda Kay Liye. He then worked in all-time favourite dramas, including Humsafar, Dastaan, and Zindagi Gulzar Hai. In 2014, he made his Bollywood debut in Khoobsurat, co-starring Sonam Kapoor. He also worked in two more Hindi films, including Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. However, do you know Fawad refused to kiss Sonam and Alia onscreen? Yes, you read that right. Now, we stumbled upon his take on the same.
Fawad Khan was seen opposite Alia Bhatt in the film, Kapoor & Sons, and their onscreen presence won hearts. However, Alia once, in an interview with the Deccan Chronicle in 2017, revealed that Fawad refused to go by the script. She mentioned that as per the script, there was a kissing scene between Fawad and her. However, the actor could not be persuaded to do it. And every time Alia went near his face, he would flinch. Elaborating the same, Alia had shared:
“There was a kiss in the film with Fawad. When we did the scene, it was decided that we would cheat-kiss. Still, every time I would go near his face, he would flinch. I had to keep reassuring him I wouldn’t compromise his chastity.”
Not only in Kapoor & Sons, but Fawad also refused to do the kissing scene with Sonam Kapoor in his Bollywood debut film, Khoobsurat. And during the film promotions for Khoobsurat, he was asked about the same. To this, he explained that if he had done the kissing scene, it could have hurt the sentiments of his core audience. In Fawad's words:
“I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing my inhibitions.”
Deepika Padukone is one of the most stunning actresses of her time. Thus, she was also once able to attract Pakistani actor, Fawad Khan with her beauty. It was during an awards night when Fawad was seen wooing Deepika with his shayari. In a video shared by a netizen, Fawad recited the lines of the song, Roop Tera Mastana, to Deepika, and he indeed looked adorable. In the end, Deepika even hugged him.
Reportedly, the video was from the time when Ranveer and Deepika did not made their relationship public. One could spot Ranveer sitting in the audience, and looking clearly awkward upon seeing another man hitting on his ladylove. As soon as the video surfaced online, netizens were left in awe of Ranveer's reaction. However, some even made fun of him. Check out the comments:
