Apparently Fawad Khan’s wife was okay with him kissing Sonam Kapoor in Khubsoorat and this was not the reason for him for refusing to kiss Alia Bhatt in his new movie.
Bollywood’s brilliant new entrant from across the border, reveals he refuses to do intimate scenes as he doesn’t want to hurt the sentiments of his core audience. He is reported to have said, ‘‘I didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of my core audience. The audience that has got me where I am! I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing all my inhibitions. I just want to prepare the audience for a gradual change.’’
According to him his wife not only watched the whole movie with Sonam Kapoor (including the kissing parts) but was also happy that her hubby is receiving all the success in Bollywood (Bravo)!
Today Fawad is seen as one of the most romantic actors in Pakistan and interestingly has earned the reputation without getting intimate in front of the camera. In ‘Khoobsurat’ he is seen romancing Bollywood style icon Sonam Kapoor.
So will he kiss in the future?
“You never know. I never say never. I’d rather walk the unpredictable path. Besides, I’d never like to throw in something titillating just to spike and spice up a film,” said Fawad Khan who became a sensation back home post featuring in TV shows “Humsafar” and “Zindagi Gulzar Hai”.
When told that a kiss in “Khubsoorat” where two people in love express their feelings is quite natural, he said: “I agree. But what I learnt from doing the two popular Pakistani serials ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ and ‘Humsafar’ is that audiences appreciate a romantic moment without physical intimacy.
“There was not a touch or a hug anywhere in either series. And yet audiences loved my chemistry with my co-stars (Mahira Khan and Sanam Saeed). I kind of like the idea of virgin romance to just show the couple’s feelings through words and gestures and then leave the rest to the audiences’ imagination,” he said.
