Refused 'PK' because of 'Kapoor & Sons': Fawad Khan

Fawad Khan was offered the role of the Pakistani character Sarfaraz in 'PK'

Ians March 13, 2016

Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan has revealed he refused to star in Rajkumar Hirani's blockbuster PK since he had committed to his upcoming film Kapoor & Sons.

"When I was approached by the filmmaker, I completely lost my mind because I got such a good opportunity. But unfortunately I could not commit as I had already given my commitment to Kapoor & Sons. I only let any opportunities go when I am aware of all the aspects, but I regret it when I have to leave an opportunity due to commitment issues, which is in the case of PK," said Fawad.

The actor was offered the role of the Pakistani character in the film, who falls in love with Anushka Sharma's character. The role then landed into Sushant Singh Rajput's lap. The film, starring superstar Aamir Khan, went on to become the highest-grossing film in the history of Hindi cinema, collecting more than Rs300 crore at the box office.

Fawad's debut film Khoobsurat had released just three months before PK and he could have two releases in 2014 if he had done PK. The gap between Khoobsurat and Kapoor & Sons wouldn't have seemed so big, considering he didn't have any release in 2015.

Kapoor & Sons, directed by Shakun Batra and also starring Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, is releasing on March 18.


Fahad Khan | 5 years ago | Reply @Vicky: LOL, that unknown guy was already famouse in Pak as well as India from his role in Hamsafar Drama
Rocky Handsome | 5 years ago | Reply I feel Fawad Khan did the right thing by not going for "PK". If he had done the PK movie, instead of Kapoor and Sons, this would have certainly created a lot of chaos in India. BTW, I am waiting for John's Abhraham's upcoming movie Rocky Handsome Box Office Collection. I think, movie will be the top earner of 2016.
