It is people, true. Fawad Khan refused to do Battle of Bittora – a comedy film opposite Sonam Kapoor, having a screenplay written by her sister Rhea – partly because of the intimate scenes in the film.
His determination is explained by him in more expansive terms in his latest interview with Filmfare:
“Doing cozy scenes is something I’m uncomfortable with correct now. I’ve mentioned that several times before as well,” said Fawad.
He continued, “… Because it WOn’t appeal to the sensibilities of my audience back home. I’ve to go back and work there. I will not be a girgit (chameleon) and change my colours merely because I’m working here. Well, that is my viewpoint.”
So there you’ve got it, folks. Fawad’s not unclear about his boundaries, and contains no issues working within them. We’ll next see Fawad in Rishi Kapoor & Sons, opposite Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra and Kapoor.
