The man's Bollywood debut has already delivered Fawad a truckload of fans, with women everywhere wanting to know more about this singer, model and actor ('Is he single?'; 'Is he funny?'; 'Will he marry me?').
So, here are some things you need to know about Fawad. One, he's married (we know, we know). Two, he's a self-confessed introvert. Three, Fawad began his career as a singer, and released his album Irtiqa in 2003, before deciding to become an actor.
Koel Purie Rinchet: Hi Fawad, you seem to be the new Khan in town, but from what we hear, you're already married. Do you think getting married so early makes room for infidelity?
Fawad Afzal Khan: "I fell in love when I was 17, and have been married for a decade now. And interestingly enough, it just gets better and better everyday. It's like an addiction and I love it!"
KPR: Awww! What's the addiction?
FAK: "When you live with a person, you get to know them in and out. You get to find out so much more, evolve together and learn each other's deepest darkest secrets, and still be okay with it—and that's the best part."
KPR: When you worked with Sonam Kapoor...would you have hit on her if you weren't married?
FAK: "Hahaha! Of course! I would've hit on anything that moves if I wasn't married."
KPR: You already have a huge fan following in India. Do you think your good looks have been a reason for your success?
FAK: "I don't think I'm the most good-looking man. I think India and Pakistan have some extremely handsome men, and I'm not even close. In fact, I'd rate myself quite low. And my career track has had nothing to do with my looks...it's purely based on my acting."
KPR: Talking about cinema in Pakistan, do you think women are curbed a lot more, than in Indian cinema?
FAK: "Sadly, yes. There is more policing, and a strong sense of shame in society, which I feel is unfair. Women should be allowed to express themselves just as men are. We must also take into account Pakistan's population, compared to India's—since we have fewer numbers, news travels faster. So whatever is highlighted becomes even bigger."
KPR: What are the top myths Indians have about Pakistan that are just not true?
FAK: "There are no myths. Out of all the people I've met, no one has come across asking unusual things about Pakistan. There is no antagonism, as some may imagine. People generally ask about life in Lahore, the scenic beauty there, or what we do for entertainment."
KPR: What was the one idea about India that you came with, that's been crushed or confirmed?
FAK: "No, I didn't come with any notions about anything or anyone. But I love the great hospitality that is being extended to me here!"
