Bollywood (2014–present)[edit]

Khan was supposed to make his Bollywood debut soon after Khuda Kay Liye was released. But due to unstable political situation between Pakistan and India after Mumbai attacks things could not materialize. "This is certainly not the first Bollywood project that was offered to me, Way back in 2008, I was supposed to fly down to Mumbai to meet several producers and directors, but I wasn’t able to make it. When Khoobsurat came along, there was no way I could say no. I mean, it was the chance to meet and work with a legend such as Anil Kapoor." said Khan in an interview he gave in 2014.[28]

In 2014, Khan made his debut in Bollywood in Shashanka Ghosh's Khoobsurat opposite Sonam Kapoor.[29] A remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit of the same name starring Rekha and Rakesh Roshan, the film revolves around Sonam Kapoor's character, Dr. Mili Chakravarty, who is a middle class physiotherapist from Delhi.[30] Khan plays Yuvraj Vikram Singh Rathore, Mili's love interest and the son of her patient; a Royal Indian family.[30] Movie received positive to mediocre reviews, however Khan's performance was praised by the critics and noted as one of the highlights of the film.[31][32] Moreover, the film emerged as a box office success, being declared as a "hit" by various media outlets. The film was particularly well received in the UK, UAE and Pakistan owing to Khan's following in these countries for his previous television work.[33][34] Fawad khan will be seen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in his upcoming movie "Ae dil hai Mushkil" which will be produced by Karan Johar. According to the sources of media, this upcoming movie is a remake of "Doosra Aadmi" which was the 1997 Bollywood film.[35]

Music (2000–2012)[edit]

Initially two separate rock bands, Ahmed Ali Butt's Entity and Khan's Paradigm were both active in the Lahore music scene since 1994 and 2000, respectively.[36][37] During the early 2000s, the two bands collaborated with each other on the title track for Khan's and Butt's popular television sitcom, Jutt and Bond, when the show's director suggested that they do the title song together.[36][37] Led by Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan, the lead guitarist of Paradigm, the two bands collaborated and recorded the title song, Hamein Aazma, which played at the end of the show.[36][38] In early 2002, advertisements for Pepsi's Battle of the Bands began to air on television, calling upon entries from aspiring Pakistani bands. Since independent compilations and releases on record were lacking on both sides of the band, they decided to send in "Hamein Aazma" as a collaborative effort, under the name of Entity Paradigm.[36] It was during this time that Entity Paradigm (EP) officially came into existence, with Fawad Khan as the band's lead vocals.[36][39] Entity Paradigm's debut album, Irtiqa, released in October 2003 and received wide critical appreciation, especially the popular romantic track Rahguzar.[8][36] On 9 January 2007, the band disbanded due to various band members pursuing different projects.[36] The band briefly reunited in 2010 to perform Bolo Bolo in the third season of the popular TV music show Coke Studio. In the same year, the band also released their patriotic single Shor Macha, written by Khan, Ahmed and Salman, and recorded at The Albert Studios.[40]

Khan left the band in 2012 to focus on his acting career.[41] Apart from his rock musical career with his band Entity Paradigm, Khan has done an Original Sound Track for Geo TV serial Satrangi in 2008, in which he acted also. Khan has also given background score for the telefilm Behadd along with Hasil Qureshi.


Appearing strikingly good-looking in his teens, he began modeling in his teens. Khan has occasionally walked the ramp for leading fashion designers of Pakistan. Talking about the modelling, Khan stated that he shies away from modelling and has only appeared in fashion shows as showstopper for his friends.[42] Khan's appearances on ramp include walk for Munib Nawaz in 2010,[43][44] Umar Sayeed in 2012,[45] and for Republic by Omar Farooq in 2015.[46] Recently, Khan has made brand ambassador of the Indian brand Giovanni.[47]

Writing and Production[edit]

Khan is known for regularly improvising the scenes in his TV shows. He has expressed his interest in going behind the camera for writing and direction in future. To fulfill his desire, he co-wrote the screenplay of his Telefilm Armaan (2013 film) with Vasay Chaudhry and director of the movie Anjum Shahzad.[48] Screenplay of the telefilm received positive reviews.[citation needed].[48] He also wrote the lyrics for few songs such as Rahguzar during his association with Entity Paradigm [49]

Khan co-produced his telefilm Armaan along with 7th Sky Entertainment.[48]


Khan hosted 14th Lux Style Awards held on 30th Sep, 2015 in Karachi, Pakistan. He co-hosted this awards ceremony with Mahira Khan.[50]


He is often credited with re-introducing the subtle romance to Pakistani television screens with his shows. According to Firstpost "His old-world mannerisms, rugged looks and the way he slips Urdu into his English all come together to make Khan seem distinct in a very charming way from the big, flashy world of Bollywood".[18] He has been particularly applauded for possessing the art of speaking with eyes both in Pakistani and Indian media. Maliha Rahman of DAWN wrote Fawad Khan has eyes that can go from guarded to piercing in the blink of a moment. He just as easily switches from rock star to romantic hero to anti-hero.[51][52]

Khan's show Zindagi Gulzar Hai received unprecedented success in India for a television show in such short span. Khan was praised for his natural performance and good looks. His popularity created a mass swooning and collective hysteria amongst the female audience. A term "Fawad Fever" started circulating on social media; denoting his popularity.[53] An Indian daily reported "Fawad Afzal Khan became a massive hit among girls since the first look hit the telly world. His charisma completely wooed the audience and they looked forward to the show" [54] His movies and his performances are acknowledged by Indian and Pakistani media.[55][56] [57][58][59][60][61]

Humanitarian and social causes[edit]

Khan regularly participates in the charity and social causes in Pakistan and internationally. His most prominent association with charities include Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Islamic Relief. He dedicated his debut Bollywood movie Khoobsurat to the cancer patients of SKMCH&RC and routinely participates in the fundraising campaigns by the institution. Khan took forward his association with the SKMCH by appearing in its telethon fundraising campaign which was telecast on ARY Digital Network in January and February 2015. In 2013, 2014 & 2015 Khan visited the UK and USA for participating in charity dinner galas and concerts organized by the various charities.[62]

Khan has shown his support to SOS Children's Villages by participating in the children carnivals that were organized in 2012 and 2014.[63]

In 2012, Khan was appointed as a brand ambassador of the WWF Earth Hour campaign. Commenting on his role, he shared that it was an honor to be associated with the cause and he hoped he would be able to convince people to adopt a safer strategy for energy conservation in future.[64]
