What's more for Fawad Khan-Mahira Khan?
Fawad Khan started his acting career with Jutt and Bond. However, he rose to prominence with two TV dramas—Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Humsafar. He made his Bollywood debut with Shashanka Ghosh's Khubsoorat co-starring Sonam Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Kirron Kher. He went on to play a lead role in Shakun Batra's Kapoor & Sons along with Alia Bhatt, and Sidharth Malhotra before the Indian government banned Pakistani artists following the Pulwama terror attack.
Besides Humsafar, Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan were also seen in Bilal Lashari's action film from last year, The Legend of Maula Jatt. Directed by Bilal Lashari, it is an adaptation of the 1979 cult classic "Maula Jatt". However, the producers have said it is neither a remake nor a sequel. The film, which released in Pakistan on October 13, 2022, is the highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time with box office returns of $10 million.
