Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johan has reportedly advised Pakistani actor Fawad Khan to try his luck in Hollywood to revive his stalled career.
According to a leading daily, although Fawad was initially skeptical of the idea, Karan told Fawad the cultural stereotypes of Asians playing cab drivers and terrorists had changed after Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood innings. That’s when Fawad got interested.
A close friend of Fawad said, “This is all new to Fawad. He never wanted to step out of his comfort zone. But with nothing happening to his career in Bollywood and Pakistan, he will now move ahead to explore options in the West.”
The actor was last seen in a Bollywood film in 2016 in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, directed by Karan. Fawad has a crazy fan following in India and Pakistan both.
Currently, Fawad is busy gearing up for the Pakistani movie, Maula Jatt 2. Directed by Bilal Lashari, the movie also stars Hamza Ali Abbasi, Mahira Khan, Adnan Jaffar, Shamoon Abbasi and Humaima Malik.
The movie will see the Humsafar couple Fawad and Mahira Khan reunite on the screen. He also judged a Pakistani music reality show with Atif Aslam.
