“I’m a very big fan of Hollywood. I really like what’s happening there right now, where the marriage between cinema and TV is amazing. Things are changing here (in India), but it’s only the tip of the iceberg, it’s just started,” he added.
The actor, who has been part of TV shows like “Humsafar” and “Zindagi Gulzar Hai”, says he’s entering cinema “because I get to learn something from it”.
In India, Fawad is making his Hindi film debut with “Khoobsurat”, which stars Sonam Kapoor as the female lead. The fact that it’s a movie driven by the female character, did not make him apprehensive about taking up the role.
The process of choosing the film was “pretty easy” for him.
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, “Khoobsurat” is the remake of 1980 superhit film “Khubsoorat”.
