From the besotted young beau to the tragically jealous lover, Fawad’s romantic avatars have been the thing of paperback love stories. Suit him into a T watch him live on a talk-show and he’s inexplicably polite, well-mannered, absolute crush fodder for masses of women all over the country. Now, as he will head to India, its likely he will replicate his success there as well.
He plays a Rajisthani prince in his Bollywood debut. Khoobsurat, Disney’s first cinematic venture in India, is a production fairly entrenched in the Anil Kapoor family. Father Anil and daughter Rhea Kapoor are part of the production team while daughter Sonam Kapoor plays the female lead.
Fawad was selected as the male lead based on the acting accolades he had earned so far in Pakistan. If the initial sneak peeks are anything to go by, the role couldn’t suit him better.
