Fawad Khan

Fawad Khan is a Pakistani actor and singer who has also worked in Bollywood. Born in Karachi, Fawad spent his growing up years in Dubai, Riyadh and Manchester, before moving back to Lahore. During his teenage, he played guitar, bass and drums, and went on to form a band named Entity Paradigm, as its lead singer. Fawad's first television stint was with Jutt And Bond in early 2000's. He made his debut in Pakistani films with critically acclaimed 2007 movie Khuda Kay Liye. His major stardom came after his 2010 television show Dastaan which was based on Partition. In 2011, he stole the television ratings with his most popular show Humsafar opposite Mahra Khan. 2012 show Zindagi Gulzar Hai's success only established him as a strong actor of Pakistani television industry. He swept through Best Actor awards for several television shows and films between 2008 and 2014. In 2015 he was also enlisted as the sexiest male in Asia. After Indian channel Zindagi telecast all his shows across the border too, his female following only grew. Fawad soon turned towards Bollywood and made his debut in Sonam Kapoor-starrer Khoobsurat in 2014. The film's success established his name in Indian films too. His second Hindi outing was Karan Johar's Kapoor & Sons in 2016. He was lauded for not just his acting, but also for his bold step towards playing a homosexual character in the film. In September 2016, Fawad was caught in the controversy around banning of Pakistani actors in Bollywood, unleashed by the MNS, in the aftermath of the Uri attack. This affected his next film, Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which he played an extended cameo. Fawad had to return to Pakistan in the midst of the brewing tensions. Though the film managed to open to warm response at the box office during Diwali, Fawad's future Bollywood projects had to be put on hold until the political situation gets normal. Fawad is married to his childhood sweetheart Sadaf whom he met during coaching classes as a teenager. After dating for eight years, the two got married in 2005. They have two kids, son Ayaan and daughter Elaynas. Fawad runs a clothing line titled "SILK by Fawad" in collaboration with his wife.
