Fahad Mustafa was on the right track when he introduced Fawad Khan as the fourth Khan after Shah Rukh, Salman, and Aamir at the ARY Awards this year.

The Pakistani heartthrob has made it big in Bollywood, as Times Celebex has published it’s monthly celebrity ranking, revealing Fawad Khan as the top Bollywood actor.

Fawad’s role in Kapoor And Sons was rejected by 6 actors, confirm KJo

The website explains that Celebex is “the most definitive rating index of Bollywood stars and the power they yield over the masses. Based on their popularity, performance and visibility the ‘T Score’ is calculated by measuring various parameters ranging from box office performance to PR buzz to online following.”


I do very silly stuff in the bathroom, in my private moments: Fawad Khan

Fawad Khan not only made it to the number one spot on the list of Bollywood actors, he outranked superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan who grabbed the second and third spot respectively.

According to Times of India, Fawad’s high ranking was due to him being in the news after the release of his Bollywood film Kapoor & Sons, and for winning several awards for his performance in the movie.

Priyanka Chopra has grabbed first place in the ‘Top actresses’ category, with Alia Bhatt coming in second place — a big leap for the young actor, thanks to her performance in Kapoor & Sons. 

Way to go, Fawad!

    I am more interested in his work than his ranking. At the age of 40 I am no more interested in Stars but in good art work.Recommend

    Pakistanis who go to Bollywood should be banned and have to pay 100% tax on the money they make there. When millions of Kashmiris are suffering and diying it is disgusting. Recommend

    and an Indian director was shown shoe in Pakistan, he is so afraid of hostilities by Pakistani now that he has refused now to go Pakistan again. Pakistan is neither safe for cricketers nor for artists from other countries.Recommend

    Due to this ranking his demands would rise so high that Pakistani directors and producers will not be able to afford him anymore. As a consequence of that development Fawad Khan will distance himself more and more from the Pakistani film industry, resulting in possibly applying for an Indian citizenship. That day isn’t far away. Adnan Sami, Sonya Jehan, Ali Zafar are already living in India permanently. Soon Fawad Khan would join their ranks. Recommend

    Bollywood directors sign pak artists in just 10-15 lacs amount and they capture the market of 200 million Pakistanis which gives them crores of profit …..average indian movie earns 5-10 cr from Pakistani public, the day Bollywood film makers don’t get any profit from Pak, they will close the doors for pak artistsRecommend

    Sadaf Ansari, when the people like you react like this I really feel for Pakistan’s education system. Though they give you degrees but not intellect! Stop being stereotype. Its not about India, its about Indian politician and its not about Pakistan its about our politicians.

    You are definitely entitled to your own opinion but an opinion that creates hatred should be avoided on such platforms!!! Banning them wont make any difference, banning such politicians can make difference. Exchange of talents whether be it sports or movies can only bring people closer! If you have any argument for that just remember the time when Indian cricket team visited Pakistan in early 2000s. Since there were so much positiveness and awareness created by both Indian and Pakistani government people really came closer and treated them as Human beings which they ARE !!! Recommend

    It AMAZES me how insecure indians are. You can find them on EVERY social media/news article on the internet cursing and abusing us for our growth and success. This insecure nation can’t even handle some success of Pakistanis imagine what will happen to them when we start to become an economic giant (CPEC, SCO etc). The insecurity will eventually consume their entire nation :)Recommend

    @Rashid: You can think only negative instead revive your industry so that you may be able to see Lollywood films, it is business be smart enough in stead of just crying be realistic and ask your actors actoresses why they come to India to eaarn, you go to Dubai,KSA and other countries in search of work and Indians also immigrate to foreign lands in search of good pastures and to earn ten crore they first spend 100n crore you do it Indians are not going to do it for you, so better stop hating neither it paid previously and nor it will pay in future.Recommend

    Cool it, guys, rise above petty politics and appreciate the good in both countries, it’s the hatred that has drained us of our best resources, time and energy, remember we have the same genes , same culture and customs, no matter how much we try to ape the other nations, we can’t be accepted or be like them.

    So grow up and enjoy the talent, love and harmony created by the inter-mixing of our people, actors and intellectuals for the mutual benefit of the entire sub-continent. Recommend
