Pakistan’s Beloved Heartthrob Fawad Khan Turns 35 Today!


Fawad Khan, Pakistan’s beloved heartthrob, turns 35 today! He became a household name faster than anyone else imaginable, considering his impeccable acting skills in Humsafar, Khuda Kay Liye, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, and more.

Making his way into Bollywood was a given and no one is surprised with his transition. However, recently with the increased tensions between India and Pakistan, he came under fire for his cameo in the KJo film ‘Ae Di Hai Mushkil’.

Paying tribute to him on this momentous occasion, here is a list of his spectacular television debuts that have had the audiences craving for more, and receiving numerous accolades for his performances.

 1. Khuda Kay Liye (2008)

In this heart-wrenching tale of religious extremism, Fawad Khan plays the role of Sarmad who, after being heavily influenced by an Islamic activist, leaves his musical passion to pursue an exceptionally narrow-minded life.

2. Dastaan (2011)

Set in the time of the partition, playing the role of Hassan, Fawad makes quite the impact in this television series that focuses on inter-religion marriages, which are still quite the taboo topic in our society.

3. Armaan (2013)


This romantic film continued Khan’s trend of playing the love-struck man in each series. Playing opposite Aamina Sheikh, he makes quite the impact in this tale.

4. Humsafar (2013)

Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan prove once again that no other two personalities could make a stronger couple with as much chemistry as they had in this romantic drama that is still talked about to this day.

5. Zindagi Gulzar Hai (2014)

In this romantic drama, we see Khan playing the role of the rich bad boy, which we rarely get to witness as he struggles for Sanam Saeed’s character’s love.

6. Khoobsurat (2014)

Fawad makes his Bollywood debut with this film, with Sonam Kapoor playing his love interest. Based on a fictional tale of a Royal Prince, it does not seem as though it may have been hard for him to embody this role.

7. Kapoor & Sons (2016)

Playing a homosexual character is hard enough when you’re the opposite in actuality especially coming from an Islamic background, but Fawad proves to us once again that he can tackle any role without breaking a sweat.

8. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)

His latest cameo in this Bollywood film that caused all the outrage and controversies was immensely talked about. Maybe it was the song ‘cutiepie’, that he featured in, had the crowds going insane!

Fawad Khan has proved time and time again that he is quite the versatile actor but aside from that, he’s a gem of a human being.

Excited to play the role of the legendary #Alamgir
