Fawad Afzal Khan, the phenomenon, is one of the best things our neighbouring country Pakistan could give us, among others like Atif Aslam, of course. When his shows started to air on TV channel Zindagi, people (mostly women) couldn’t stop drooling over him. In no time, he became a national heartthrob. Then came his Bollywood debut with Khoobsoorat against Sonam Kapoor, sealing Khan’s popularity in the hearts and minds of Indians. The film didn’t do anything great on the Box office but Fawad Khan’s Mr Darcy-like demeanour was an instant hit with women.
With one Coke Studio video of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s version of Afreen Afreen going viral, trust the Internet to dig out another one and that too with Fawad Khan featuring in it.
Yes, in 2010, Khan sang from Coke Studio Pakistan Season 3 with his rock band Entity Paradigm that he had co-founded in 2000. Reportedly, he is not associated with the band any more, but he is a fabulous singer who has given hits like ‘Rahguzar’, ‘Waqt’, ‘Kahan Hai Tu,’ ‘Hamein Aazma’ with his band.
This song ‘Bolo Bolo’ performed by the band was a tribute to Pakistani semi-classical singer Sajjad Ali was a massive hit.
Khan stole millions of hearts with ‘Kapoor and Sons’ and is ready to weave his magic again in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
