Fawad Khan On Refusing To Kiss Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor

Fawad Khan On Not Kissing Alia Bhatt-Sonam Kapoor Onscreen: Fawad Khan, the Pakistani heartthrob is celebrated for his acting prowess and music career. He also gained significant popularity in Bollywood with his brief but memorable acting chops.

Fawad made his Bollywood debut with the film Khoobsurat in 2014 alongside Sonam Kapoor, and went on to feature in Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Along with his charm, what caught everyone's attention was the actor's candid revelation about refusing to kiss onscreen.

Alia Bhatt, who shared the screen with Fawad in Kapoor & Sons, disclosed in a 2017 interview with the Deccan Chronicle that the actor was reluctant to kiss onscreen.

Despite attempts to convince him, Fawad recoiled every time Alia approached for the onscreen kiss. Alia was quoted as saying, "There was a kiss in the film with Fawad. When we did the scene, it was decided that we would cheat-kiss. Still, every time I would go near his face, he would flinch. I had to keep reassuring him I wouldn't compromise his chastity."

Fawad Khan addressed his decision during the promotional events for Khoobsurat, where he opened up on declining a kissing scene with Sonam Kapoor, and said, "I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing my inhibitions."

Before beginning his acting career, Fawad gained recognition as a member of the rock band Entity Paradigm. His celluloid journey began in 2007 with the critically acclaimed Pakistani film Khuda Kay Liye, and he later rose to fame with television shows including, Humsafar, Dastaan, and Zindagi Gulzar Hai.

Fawad marked his entry into Bollywood in 2014 and remained in the industry until the ban on Pakistani artists in India in 2016. Now, the actor is set for a reunion with Mahira Khan in the Netflix series Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo, an adaptation of another novel by the author of Humsafar.
