Fawad Khan began his B-Town career with Khoobsurat, a romcom, followed it up with Kapoor & Sons, a family drama and his next is Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, a romantic drama. The actor from across the border sure is playing his cards right. He knows that romance is the genre his huge female fan-following wants to see him in the most. After ADHM, the actor will be seen in Raat Baaki opposite Katrina Kaif, followed by Salman Khan Films’ next with Nitin Kakkar.

Nitin confirms, “We go on floors with Fawad sometime next year. He is locked in. We are currently in the process of getting an actress on board.” The film will roll early next year when Fawad’s dates are available. However, unlike the director’s last film Filmistan, there is no social message in this one. The director adds, “This is an urbane love story. But more than that, it’s an interesting take on relationships between a boy and a girl.”

Not to forget, Fawad was initially in talks for Salman’s Jugalbandi however that isn’t materialising. Revealed a source, “Amar Butala, who’s heading SKF, has been in constant touch with Fawad and it’s true that the two have finally decided to work together. But it’s not for Jugalbandi. Fawad has greenlit Filmistaan director Nitin Kakkar’s next film instead.”

As of now, SKF’s immediate next venture is the Kabir Khan directorial Tubelight starring Salman and Sohail. Only after that, will the makers decide which one to start next — Nitin Kakkar’s next or Jugalbandi! Your thoughts? Tell us in the comments below and we’ll be back with more updates right here.
