Fawad Khan is taking Bollywood by storm!
The actor who was last seen in Karan Johar’s Kapoor & Sons has managed to reach new heights of stardom with his stellar performance. Considering the box-office success of Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra starrer, KJo has reportedly decided to increase the screen time for Fawad’s role in his next, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
“Fawad has become a star after Kapoor & Sons. His role, which was more of an extended guest appearance in ADHM has been altered,” a source close to the production told Bollywood Life.
“Now, it won’t just be a cameo, it’s almost as much as Salman’s role in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. So, Fawad will be seen in a supporting role, not a cameo, even in the film credits,” the source added.
The source further claimed that the actor-director duo’s great off-screen camaraderie could add to the success of their films.
“Fawad and Karan are extremely close friends now and besides, Fawad is a big draw across the border and in the Middle East. He is a big draw in certain overseas markets, so through him, ADHM will reach a bigger audience,” the source was quoted as saying.
The Khoobsurat actor was earlier reported to do a cameo appearance as a DJ in the upcoming film that stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in key roles.
“I have shot some of my portions already for the film. Now, I have a few more days of shooting left on the film,” Fawad told Bollywood Life.
Recently, the actor was spotted on the sets of the much-anticipated film with Anushka and Ranbir.
Apart from Fawad, another Pakistani actor, Imran Abbas is set to make a cameo appearance in ADHM.
Reports are also making rounds that Fawad is in talks with KJo for his third film — a romantic comedy with him in the lead role!
