Fawad Khan will be seen in biopic of musical giant Alamgir



The Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan is going to play the role of Pakistani eminent singer and musical giant Alamgir in his upcoming film Albela Rahi, which might be changed the ideology that artists in Pakistan do not get their due share of publicity or respect.

An event was organized to promote the movie and the Production house Fog Catcher Films, a sister concern of Stimulus Productions which boasts of over 200 productions since its inception proclaimed that the work on the project would be starting soon.

The creators of the film stated that “The film is based on the epic tale of once an ordinary man, Alamgir, who rose to be the iconic pop star of Pakistan and is known as the pioneer of the pop music in the country,”

An image was posted for the announcement of the film with Fawad Khan, Sultan Ghani Afzal and Faisal Hashmi.

Fawad Khan also explained the chance to represent the life of ‘Dekha Na Tha’ singer as ‘exciting’ whilst he also entertained the mass at the occasion with a performance of Alamgir’s well-known song ‘Albela Rahi.’

Alamgir, the real life Albela Rahi, also told at the occasion by a video link and valued the attempts of Fawad and the movie’s producers.

Fawad, who was initially well-known in Pakistan as the front man of rock band EP, astonished with his acting in Shoaib Mansoor’s film Khuda Key Liye. He also got the attention and love by the audience with his effortless chemistry with Mahira Khan in a hit TV drama Humsafar.

Fawad debuted in Bollywood in hit Khoobsurat in which he cast with Bollywood gorgeous actress Sonam Kapoor and bagged Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut last year in Bollywood.

Fawad will soon be seen to promote his upcoming Bollywood movie, Karan Johar’s Kapoor & Sons, in which he is acting against Bollywood young actress Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra. The movie is going to release in March this year.
