Pakistani actor Fawad Khan has requested the director of Kapoor and Sons to tone down the intimate scenes between him and Alia Bhatt, reported Times of India.
After making his Bollywood debut with Khoobsurat late last year, Fawad has become one of the most sought after Pakistani actors in India. The star has already signed two films since his last film with Sonam Kapoor: Reema Kagti’s film Mr. Chaloo with Priyanka Chopra and Shakun Batra’s Kapoor and Sons alongside Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt.
According to Mirror, Siddharth and Alia who are also dating in real life have an intense love making scene in the movie but reports suggest that Fawad might also be required to shoot a steamy scene in the film with Highway actress.
A source close to the production revealed that, “Fawad is not comfortable with the idea of getting physical in reel life. Even in his TV shows, Humsafar and Zindagi Gulzar Hai, which are romantic family dramas, there’s no kissing or touching involved.”
Although the actor has lock lips with Sonam Kapoor in Khubsoorat, this time however, he has had a change of heart. “Fawad is extremely sensitive to the sensibilities of his conservative countrymen,” the source added. “He has told Shakun and Karan to water down the scene.”
The Humsafar actor will sit down with the director and KJo to discuss the love scenes to ensure that it does not spark off any controversy. He wants the scene to rely on allusion rather than actual action.
Earlier this year Fawad Khan won the Best Debut Award at the Filmfare Awards ceremony for his performance in Khoobsurat alongside Sonam Kapoor.
