Who is he?
Fawad Khan is our Pakistani Tom Cruise. He may not be a Scientologist and might be a thousand years younger but he’s got the same boy-next-door sex appeal that Hollywood’s golden boy once had. Khan’s popularity knows no age limits — little girls want him as their daddy, older aunties wish for a boy like him (as their damaad), and young women — well, they pretty much want him in any capacity, at anytime and place!
Why he’s droolworthy
The sexy EP front man first caught our eye when he managed to hold his own next to Shaan in Khuda Ke Liye. A model, rocker and film star, he’s walked on the ramp, rocked crowds and made the drama serial “Humsafar” a runway sensation. With his finely chiselled features and trademark smoldering gaze, Khan was made to play “Humsafar’s” tormented Ashar, the guy that every Pakistani woman fantasises about. Recently, he’s been seen sporting a beard, the perfect foil to his boyish charm, giving him a brooding persona which still has us swooning.
What you might not know
Fawad spent his early life in Greece, the UK and Saudi Arabia. The Fawad Khan brand of charm can sometimes be near-fatal: a teenage girl reportedly attempted suicide for him by slitting her wrists after watching “Humsafar”.
