It was my honor to work with Fawad Afzal Khan: Karan Johar
Bollywood director and producer Karan Johar has said that it was his honor to work with Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan in ‘Ae Dil Hai Muskil’ and that he wants to work with him once again.
Speaking at a media discussion in London School of Economics, Karan Johar was asked if he would be keen in working with Pakistani actors after their ban in Bollywood. The director replied that everyone knows what had happened to him last time.
He said: “For me the talent has no boundaries but unfortunately I stand in the minority.”
“Sometimes I believe I wish that I wasn’t accountable, but I am a citizen of the country and follow the diktat that the environment suggests,” he continued.
Responding to a question related to working with Fawad Khan, Karan Johar said that: “I think some of the most exceptional talent comes from Pakistan. I had the honour and pleasure to actually direct Fawad Khan, have seen his exceptional work and it was immensely brave of him to do what he did in Kapoor & Sons.”
“I think after 6 actors had said no to that role, it was tremendously courageous of him to say ‘yes’,” he added.
