We knew Fawad Khan is adored across the border but who knew Ranbir Kapoor was so smitten with the Humsafar leading man?
In an interview with AIB, Ranbir revealed that after the Uri attacks, as the tensions between the neighbouring countries worsened, a week before the release of the movie, people suggested that they should re-shoot the portion of the movie where Fawad was cast.
“What people don’t understand is that film-making takes time. It takes around three to four months to get a perfect potion of that movie,” he shared.
He also talked about Fawad and his experience on working with him.
“I love Fawad as an actor, I love his contribution to the film. Before the release people were really angry about Fawad being in the movie. But listen, this is talent, man. This is art. There’s no politics. He has not done anything, we haven’t done anything.”
He went on to say, “He’s a great talent, his contribution is also huge. He’s got a huge fan following irrespective of the political climate.”
When asked if he ever felt like the less hotter person whenever Fawad was in the room, Ranbir quipped, “For sure! Especially Karan! Karan is obsessed with Fawad!”
