Fawad Khan was offered a role in Aamir Khan’s “PK,” but the actor said he could not accept the offer as he had already committed to the upcoming movie “Kapoor and Sons”. The Pakistani actor feels it was a big opportunity for him and he regrets losing it.
“When I was approached by the film-maker, I completely lost my mind because I got such a good opportunity. But unfortunately I could not commit as I had already given my commitment to ‘Kapoor and Sons.’ I only let an opportunity go when I am aware of all the aspects, but I regret it when I have to leave an opportunity due to date issues, which is in the case of ‘PK'” Indo-Asian News Service quoted Fawad as saying.
Fawad was offered the role of the Pakistani guy who was in a relationship with the Hindu Indian girl played by Anushka Sharma in the film. The role was eventually played by Sushant Singh Rajput. Aamir’s “PK” is one of the highest box office grossers of all time, both in domestic and overseas markets.
Fawad, who made his Bollywood debut with “Khoobsurat” opposite Sonam Kapoor, will be seen playing the role of a guy-next-door in “Kapoor and Sons”. The film also features Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in the lead. Directed by Shakun Batra, “Kapoor and Sons” will hit the screens March 18.
