Pakistan actor Fawad Khan clarified on Tuesday (March 14) that he was never offered PK and that his earlier quote was misinterpreted by the media. There were reports that Fawad had refused PK because of Kapoor and Sons.
Fawad Khan, who was in New Delhi for the promotions of his second Bollywood outing ‘Kapoor and Sons’, said: “PK was never offered to me and I never rejected it. Secondly, had I got any role in PK, I would have loved to do it but that wasn’t the case.”
On further being asked about his much-talked about film ‘Battle of Bittora’, he said that their calendar didn’t match and that the makers are also considering other actors for the role. Working birthday for Alia Bhatt, says is nervous ahead of Kapoor and Sons
“For ‘Battle of Bittora’, our dates couldn’t match. Sonam is such a busy actor, I myself had committed to Kapoor and Sons. So, I was working on this and then I wasn’t getting time to work on Battle of Bitora. As far as I know they are looking for other actors as well,” said Fawad.
