WEB DESK: Fawad Khan seems to be on a roll! After two years of his debut with Sonam Kapoor in Khoobsurat, and a third wheel in Kapoor and Sons, the actor is finally ready to star solo in a biggie, that would be Karan Johar’s next production, reports Mid-Day.
A source says, “The filmmaker-actor jodi is willing to collaborate on more films since they share a good rapport. They have been spotted together on numerous occasions and have discussed few ideas as well as scripts. Fawad recently signed a film after he liked the script.”
An official announcement is likely to be made once Karan finalises the lead actress and the director.
Another source says, “Initially, Sidharth Malhotra was being considered for the role. But, later, Karan approached Fawad and he immediately agreed to be part of it. He fits the bill and this film will mark his first solo hero outing in Bollywood.”
Fawad and Karan remained unavailable for comment.
Also, the same source reports that Karan has also recommended Fawad to host a gala abroad, and the organizers are on board. Karan Johar also invited Fawad to an exclusive dinner who missed out on producer’s 44th birthday bash.
