We’re actively looking for Indian talent for Pakistani films: Fawad Khan


We're actively looking for Indian talent for Pakistani films Fawad Khan

Superstar Fawad Khan, who has worked his magic across the border, is hopeful to see cinematic exchange between the two countries.

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the Kapoor & Sons actor said, “The exchange of talent is increasing slowly. I would like an active exchange of movies too.”

“We have been working on films and have been actively looking for talent from the Indian film industry to work with in Pakistani movies,” he added saying it “would be great” if Pakistani films release in India.

Fawad is playing his part in promoting this cinematic exchange. “And it is not just me. Filmmakers such as Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, and actors such as Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah, have all been trying to work across the border,” he said.

“It will take some time, and hopefully, I will be one of the first ones [to witness that change firsthand].”

On the technical front, Fawad believes that the Indian film industry is far more credible than the Pakistani industry.

“The Indian film industry has been around for more than 100 years now. So, it has far more credibility than the Pakistani film industry, which has witnessed a demise of sorts over the last 30 years. Now, the Pakistani film industry is getting back on its feet,” said the Khoobsurat actor.

Fawad will next be seen in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anuskha Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. While, Pakistani actor Imran Abbas will also be seen in a cameo role.


Reports suggest that actor Fawad Khan will soon fly down to Mumbai to finalise his next projects. If the latest buzz is anything to go by, then filmmaker Nitin Kakkar is considering the actor for his next project.

 Nitin, whose directorial debut happened with ‘Filmistaan’, is reportedly planning to make a modern day love story and is eager to cast Fawad in the lead. Apparently, the actor has expressed interest too. We are yet to see if it works out!

Fawad was last seen in Shakun Batra’s ‘Kapoor and Sons’.
