Fawad Khan faces criticism by Pakistani fans

Fawad Khan is making his debut with “Khoobsurat”, a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit of the same name, opposite Sonam Kapoor. But even before the film’s release, Fawad has earned a huge fan following, thanks to his show “Zindagi Gulzar Hai”, which was aired on Zindagi channel.
Apparently, Fawad’s fans from Pakistan have taken to social networking sites to say that he has hurt the sentiments of his country by working in a Hindi film.

When asked about his reaction on the criticism, he said: “The people you are talking about are very few. There will be people who will criticise. They are entitled to their opinion. Even if someone from India goes to work there, someone or the other will make noise.”

“Art is something that travels across all borders. Art has no culture and creed. As an actor, I would like to explore myself. I do feel bad, but I choose to ignore criticism. I think to pay attention to it is unnecessary,” he told reporters.

Charming as ever, he wowed everyone when he sang the title song of his show “Zindagi Gulzar Hai” at the event. For Fawad, it’s an honour to collaborate with the Kapoors for his Bollywood debut.

He said: “I think it’s a very big honour for me to work with the family. When I met these people, I found them very interesting. Most of all, the way I was treated and welcomed was very kind and warm.”

“So all in all, this has been a very interesting episode in my life. I had a lot of fun. There was a lot of love and warmth.”

Fawad praised Sonam for being “a very accommodating, very warm, and very welcoming person”.

“I took time for settling in the new environment, but the entire team, the production… everyone made sure to make me feel comfortable.”

Hope, the movie ‘Khoobsurat’ bring great success to Fawad Khan step in Bollywood.
