Alia Bhatt is indeed going places. The girl who made her debut as an urban Indian youth in Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’, wowed audiences with her spellbinding performance in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’.
The latest sensation in Bollywood, Pakistani actor Fawad Khan made his presence felt in the country with Zindagi channel's 'Zindagi Gulzar Hai' and 'Humsafar'. What followed was female frenzy for Fawad. He made his impressive debut opposite Sonam Kapoor as a Royal prince in 'Khoobsurat'.
The two starred together in a 1980 remake of a classic by the same name. Any guesses? Well, it is fashion conscious Sonam Kapoor and the very suave Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, that we are talking about.
Typical saas-bahu sagas and run-of-the-mill concepts outlived their popularity on the small screen. This was evident from the success of finite series like ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ and ‘Humsafar’ from Pakistan, which not only captivated audiences but also topped the charts.
‘Humsafar’ - the drama that changed the history of Pakistani Television industry is all set to premiere on Indian Television on October 14th at 8:00 PM. The drama marks the comeback of Fawad Khan and the debut of vivacious Mahira Khan on India’s first premium Hindi entertainment channel Zindagi. ‘Humsafar’ is recognised as the highest-rated Pakistani TV serial of all times and is used as a benchmark for romantic drama shows even today for its beautiful story line. The show is based on renowned Pakistani author Farhat Ishtiaq’s novel by the same name.
His debut Bollywood film 'Khubsoorat' features quite a few fudged kissing scenes and Fawad Khan, the Hindi film industry's new entrant from across the border, says he refuses to do intimate scenes as he doesn't want to hurt the sentiments of his core audience.
Pakistani sensation Fawad Khan, who enjoys a burgeoning fan following across the border too, doesn't want to be trapped in one kind of role. He says he believes in experimenting new things and increase the bandwidth of his cinematic knowledge.
