"They Just Pick You Up From There And Throw You" - Fawad Khan

Back in March, during print interviews for Kapoor & Sons, we asked Fawad Khan a few questions for our Humans of Bollywood page. We never ended up posting his quote, because we weren’t able to get a photograph of him with the board saying “actor” as we do for all our interviews on that page. (He travelled back to Pakistan soon after that promotional round, and even when he returned, he didn’t really do any media interactions.) So we held on to his quotes until we could get the photo, but, for obvious reasons, it’s unlikely that we’re going to meet him in the near future to get that. We decided to go ahead and transcribe it finally, and eerily enough, his answer is quite fitting given the current situation.

When we asked him what he’s most scared of and why, here’s what he said:

I’m most scared of people and because of their unpredictability. And I love people for their unpredictability as well. It’s just that whatever direction it veers into – if it veers into a positive direction, then unpredictability is great. But when people become hateful, that’s when it’s a real cause for concern. That’s why I feel that… don’t ever really take too much pride in how much you’ve succeeded, because it can just go away in a snap of your fingers. People will just be like, you know – one moment, you’re here, and then they just pick you up from there and throw you. That’s something they can do because they feel they have the right to do it. I don’t mean to offend the fans out there, but I’m just saying what I’ve seen in the past happen to people.
