The latest heartthrob of the nation Fawad Khan recently made his big Bollywood debut with Khoobsurat and waltzed straight into our hearts in his royal avatar. Fawad sure knows how to set hearts racing and he does it so effortlessly. Khoobsurat saw him romancing fashionista Sonam Kapoor and even though it was a big Disney love story, the kiss between the two was more apparent than real.
Now the ‘no kiss’ stand has been taken by Fawad consciously as he reasons “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.”
Well this clearly means that he is open to the idea of onscreen kissing. He says, “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.”
Fawad became a household name in India with the boon of Pakistani content on Indian televison. His shows Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Humsafar have been much appreciated by audiences and critics alike.
Fawad also spoke about the shows saying “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,”
Well, kiss onscreen or not, Fawad definitely is one of the hottest men on earth right now.
