Fawad invites Bollywood stars to Pakistan

The Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan has played his delightful acts in Bollywood in a short spell. He has even grabbed the position of top Khan Trio by taking the position on Times Celebex list.

Now he is calling his Indian co-stars to come to Pakistan and feel the love of Pakistani people. The Khubsurat star stated in an interview as, “I’ve told Sidharth Malhotra to come; even Sonam Kapoor said that she wanted to visit Pakistan. Our doors are always open,”

The actor who also sang some tracks spoke eventually, “I was not expecting an explosive response like this, and so much love and affection”.

“It’s very touching and flattering at the same time. I didn’t come with any preconceived notions, so I had no fears of not being accepted. My only fear is whether I will be able to pull off a certain role convincingly. The audience might not fall in love with me as a star, but as long as they love the characters I play, I’m happy. Uske baad jo milta hai, it’s a bonus.”

He further stated that “I am generally open-minded and liberal, so nothing shocks me. Not that there was any such experience. In fact, it was very pleasant. I grew up watching Bollywood movies. I was a fan of a lot of actors from the 80s and 90s like Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. I would love watching films like Mr Natwarlal, Shahenshah, Satte Pe Satta andMr India, and these movies have stuck with me.”

He continued by saying as, “However, when people ask me, ‘Aapko uss film ka gaana yaad hai?‘ I tell them, ‘Woh mujhe yaad nahi hai‘ because after I turned 12-13, the influence of cinema in my life was less.”

Fawad, who is going to appear in Karan Johar’s upcoming movie, stated “I think it’s very flattering and because I am such a big fan of women folk, I think for a person like me it’s even more flattering.”

He added as “I guess that’s why I become extremely conscious about too much female attention, especially in front of my wife, though I think she handles it well. Also, I don’t think I am an introvert anymore; I used to be a self-proclaimed introvert. I feel shy amongst new people, but I guess courtesy requires you to be that way.”
