Fawad Khan, a Pakistani actor, has remarked that he misses Bollywood. He appeared in a few Hindi films, including ‘Khoobsurat’ and ‘Kapoor & Sons.’ He was last featured in the Indian film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in 2016. In the aftermath of the Uri incident in 2016, the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association passed a resolution forbidding Pakistani actors from acting in Indian films. Following the terror attack in Pulwama in 2019, the All-India Cine Workers Association imposed a blanket ban on Pakistani artists.
According to a Hindustan Times storey, Fawad Khan was asked if he missed Bollywood in an interview. “I believe so. I met some wonderful acquaintances there, with whom I am still in contact. Yes, I do miss it. I miss Mumbai; it’s a lovely city. “In fact, I’ve had a wonderful time in every city I’ve visited,” he remarked.
Fawad Khan and his ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ co-star Sanam Saeed are set to return for a Zindagi Digital series directed by Asim Abbasi after an eight-year hiatus. The show, which will be shown on Zee5, was announced earlier this week.
“I think Zindagi is making bold and courageous moves when it comes to narrative,” Khan stated in a statement. It is organically turning into a platform that promotes diversity of thought and inclusivity for all filmmakers and content ranging from mainstream to avant-garde and noir. In this aesthetic environment, I believe there is a place for everyone.”
The untitled programme ‘blends magical realism with supernatural fiction inside a family reunion scenario’ and deals with themes of ‘love, loss, and reconciliation.’ Khan will play a single parent “riddled with remorse for what he has lost.” Meanwhile, Saeed will be remembered for “harbouring unearthly secrets” and “taking it upon herself to cure and make whole everyone who around her.”
