Fawad Khan’s movie Kapoor and Sons did exceptionally well at the box office.
In a recent interview Kapoor and Sons director Shakun Batra opened up about Fawad and how he made his way to the top.
The first thing he was asked about was Fawad, to which he said, “I miss him a lot. I don’t know if I am supposed to be quiet about it.. and I don’t miss him because of any other things, I miss him simply because he is a great guy and he is a lovely collaborator.”
“We Indians who work around the world, we do it legally. Similarly, if somebody else wants to work legally in our country, it should be open. It should be a two-way street,”
He further said, “I don’t know I don’t think like that…I think it’s just like any other industry. I’m sure your parents weren’t journalists but you are a journalist today. I think when you have the passion that you want to follow, you should just go and do that.”
“I don’t think we live in an age where you think as an insider or outsider anymore. I was there, I just really wanted to do it and I am glad I am getting to do it. I just keep my fingers crossed and I hope that I can keep doing it,”
Despite 2016’s post-Uri incident ban on Pakistani artists, Fawad has always proved himself through his outstanding performances.
