Fawad Khan is a bit insecure



Fawad khan the heartthrob of Pakistan and favorite of Bollywood considers that he is only a “mediocre representation of Pakistani talent”.

He was stating in an interview with an Indian newspaper and it was inquired regarding the developing competition as a lot of Pakistani actors, particularly females, are coming to Bollywood.

The Khobsurat actor stated that “I am happy, but I might just be a bit insecure because I have been a mediocre representation of Pakistani talent,”


Fawad khan further continued by saying, “There is a wealth of talent back home. Seeing other Pakistani actors entering this market is a great feeling, and I wish them the very best in life. I think they will do much better than me,”

He stated his view regarding Pakistani actresses Mahira Khan and Saba Qamar, who are going to debut in Bollywood.

He told that “I will be selfish to say, it is not an exciting time for me. I don’t differentiate between sexes. So, I feel they are as much of a competition to me [as any male actors],”


He added, “Offers are not pouring. No one is giving me work. What should I do? Stated laughingly. Honestly speaking, I am choosy. It’s (the process of film-making) time to consume, and I get tired very easily. I guess it’s the middle-class person in me who gets a little scared of all the flashlights and stardom. I am not in a hurry to reach anywhere; I am just enjoying the moment. If I was in a hurry, I wouldn’t wait till 35. My policy is to work little and to enjoy life”.

He added, “I don’t see any mental blocks. It would be a brave move, even in Pakistan, if they were to pick up an unknown actor. Such a call is braver on the producers’ part. If I am not wrong, only five percent of Indian people watch movies, so for them, to know a Pakistani actor is a bit of a long shot.”

Fawad will be seen in upcoming two movies which include Alamgir’s biopic Albela Rahi and the remake of Maula Jutt.
