Rumor has it that Fawad Khan is demanding staggering amounts for working in new Pakistani projects, after riding high on his Bollywood success.
Having bagged big banner Bollywood movies like his debut film Khoobsurat and upcoming ones, Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, along with magazine covers and national awards across border, it seems like the local industry isn’t good enough for the rising Khan.
Not only has the Pakistani heartthrob demanded huge sums of money for being cast into local projects but is also demanding projects to be shot internationally in exotic locations including Malaysia and Switzerland.
How the industry reacts to Khan’s new demands is yet to be seen, but like Adnan Sami, it will surely be our loss to see yet another Pakistani artist board ship.
Fawad Khan in Kapoor & Sons
Fawad and Siddharth will be appearing as brothers in upcoming Shakun Batra’s “Kapoor and Sons”. The two have made quite a name is Bollywood and are adored in both the countries. Fawad and Siddharth also share a platonic friendly relationship.
Siddharth has said regarding his companionship with Fawad, “I had a great working relationship with Fawad. We got along really well after a couple of days.”
“We have the same interest in food, in movies. We exchanged notes on our cultures, we used to talk about Lahore and Delhi. When we played cricket on sets, we called it India vs Pakistan match. It was exciting,” he added.
Alia Bhatt and Rishi Kapoor will also be seen in leading roles in the upcoming Indian movie. The film is a blend of drama and comedy and it is expected to make a public appearance on 18th March next year.

Apart from this, he also has an interesting cameo in Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
Fawad would be playing a good looking, hot and sexy DJ. Good-looking, hot, sexy- Isn’t he all of the above? But DJ, that’s new! The film has reaped great limelight since the moment the director made an official announcement of the film and the cast.
While talking about Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Karan revealed, “It’s a film that dwells deeply on relationships, heartbreaks and how love completes you, defines you and yet leaves you wanting more.”
