Fawad Khan’s personality is heart-throbbing. He is very charming as well as well-behaved with emotions & sensitiveness but exposes his sensitivity & emotion to dear ones only. Many females have fallen for him.
How did you feel starting a career in Bollywood as a beginner as you are a big star in Pakistan? Was it difficult for you?
Well, I loved starting my career in Bollywood although I never made it my list that I’ll work in Bollywood. As I have worked in Pakistan only but luckily somehow I got this opportunity & obliviously I liked it. And yes, there is no doubt that it was difficult to begin in Bollywood as I was nervous. Well I want to carry forward the legacy I have created in Pakistan.
Your serial “Zindagi Gulzar Hai” got popularity in India & you got a big female fan following in India so how do you feel about it?
I am glad to know that people like me as an actor in India. If the audience has accepted me in television shows it means that they will support me watching my films also.
Flip side of it is that there is a huge expectation from my fans & it makes me nervous (laughs).
How did you begin your career as an entertainer?
I was born in Karachi, where my father used to work in the sales department of a pharmaceutical company. We travelled a lot as his job required much travel. But later he was not keeping well due to cardiac condition and as a result he has to take retirement at an early stage. I was only 13 then. My mother was a housewife & dad wanted to begin something of his own. That time I wanted to do animation and for lack of career opportunities in that, I took up Bachelor’s in Computer Science but couldn’t do well in it & got C grade only. During the college days, I didn’t really have an interest in studies. So I stumbled into forming an underground band where I was working as a vocalist. Our band was called EP & we did our first album named “Irtiqa” evolution, then we started playing professionally & did almost 250 shows. Our music was doing well and was progressing & I made money from it to open a recording studio. I joined a 9 to 5 job to marry my crush Sadaf, who is my wife today. But later I left that job and soon thereafter I did television & became a popular face with serials like ‘Humsafar’, ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ in Pakistan. Then I got a chance to work in movies also & the movie in which I got my first role was “Khuda kay Lie”.
Tell us about your Wife Sadaf.
I met her at the age of 17. I met her through chatting online, with noisy dial-up modems. She was in girls’ branch of my school & that branch was very famous for all the pretty girls. Thereafter I met her at our tuition classes & I, being quite a traditionalist, proposed to her within a week of our meeting. After Post College we got married. She has started her own clothing collection called ‘Silk by Fawad Khan’ that is doing pretty well.
Who do you love the most in the World?
My Wife Sadaf, she is my Rock of Gibraltar & my anchor. I have known her for so long a period and she is my companion, my best friend, my lover & my everything. She is the one who understands me very well. I never found anything fake about her. She is a very honest person & she is not pretentious. Whenever I need her, she is always with me & vice versa.
