Onscreen romance

His debut Bollywood film Khubsoorat features quite a few fudged kissing scenes and Fawad Khan, the Hindi film industry’s new entrant from across the border, says he refuses to do intimate scenes as he doesn’t want to hurt the sentiments of his core audience.

He is seen as one of the most romantic hero in Pakistan, and interestingly has earned the reputation without getting intimate in front of the camera.

In Khoobsurat he is seen romancing Bollywood style icon Sonam Kapoor.

When asked did you refuse to kiss in Khboobsurat because of the cultural and moral embargo in Pakistan, he said: “I didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of my core audience. The audience that has got me where I am. I think I need to respect their feelings.”
