Fawad Khan, may just join the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone in pursuit of a career in Hollywood. Yes, you read just right.
In his weekly column in The Open Magazine, Rajeev Masand, reported that the Pakistani heart throb has signed on with an agent in Hollywood and is in the process of reading scripts. While who wouldn’t be excited to work in Hollywood, it seems the real reason behind him looking westward for work is the quality of films coming his way in Pakistan.
The actor is reportedly not too happy with the kind of projects he’s being getting for in Pakistan. Furthermore, with the ban of Pakistani actors in India following the Uri attack last year and the ensuing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil controversy, hopes of having a career in Bollywood also seems next to impossible for the talented actor.
All these factors combined reportedly led Fawad to explore his options in the West. According to Masand, Fawad seems to have told his colleagues and friends in Bollywood that he doesn’t find it a challenge anymore to do tele serials in Pakistan and will thus move to Los Angeles as soon as he signs a project in America. Well, now that’s an exciting news for all Fawad Khan fans. isn’t it?
Meanwhile, the actor is awaiting the release of his next Pakistani film, Maulla Jatt 2 that is expected to hit the theatres in December this year. Helmed by eminent director, Bilal Lashari, the film will have him star opposite his Humsafar co-star, Mahira Khan and fans can’t wait to see their favourite stars share screen space, once again, after such a long time.
