“I would love to work in Bollywood again but concerned about the consequences”: Fawad Khan
In a recent interview, Pakistan heartthrob Fawad Khan answered the question that if he wants to work in Bollywood again to which he replied, “I cannot give a ‘definitive answer’ until things stabilise between two countries”.
Talking to Variety, Fawad said, “It’s definitely made us very wary of answering such a question… It’s a good question but I can’t give a definitive answer until things stabilise between the two countries”.
He further added, “I think it’s more of a question whether someone else would like to work with me, instead of me working with others because fingers will be pointed at them. I’ll do my work and go away but then the people who’ll have to suffer are those who want to collaborate with me. And I care about that because they are going to live there, and they’re going to suffer the consequences”.
He continued by saying that he would “suffer the consequences” of what people or possibly even the government would think if he worked in India and returned to Pakistan.
While talking about the costars he worked with in Bollywood, Fawad said, “I have a great relationship with the people that I’ve worked with and made great friends. I would love to see them again someday, and maybe work with them again. Whether it be for an international platform, a Pakistani platform, or for an Indian platform. Mainstream Bollywood is a different ball game altogether”.
On a work front, Fawad Khan and Mehwish Hayat appeared in Disney+ Ms Marvel this year as Kamala Khan’s grandparents, by Pakistani-American actor Iman Vellani.
The Humsafar actor is now gearing up for the highly anticipated film The Legend of Maula Jatt alongside Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Mallick, Gohar Rasheed, Faris Shafi and others. The film will be releasing nationwide in theatres on Thursday, Oct 13.
