Pakistani Heartthrob Fawad Khan is missed by many in Bollywood. Having done just two movies, Fawad had to leave the film industry way too soon due to the political conflict between the two countries. Nonetheless, his performances in Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will forever be remembered. But there is another actor in the industry currently who will remind you of Fawad Khan.
He is none other than Ishwak Singh. You might remember him from the film ‘Tum Bin 2’ where he played a Pakistani character. He has also acted in other successful Bollywood films like Tamasha, Raanjhanaa and Aligarh.
Ishwak has garnered many accolades for his performances in his short and new career. Fans can’t stop comparing his look with that of Fawad. Ishwak, who was last seen playing the role of Nirmal in Veere Di Wedding, has been getting a lot of attention wherever he travels. He recently revealed how people often confuse him with the Pakistani superstar Fawad Khan.
Ishwak revealed: “It’s a wonderful thing to be compared to him (Fawad Khan). As a kid, too, people around me would say, ‘Oh, you look like this actor, that actor’ or ‘this tennis player’. People have been amazing and generous in compliments, and it’s even more amazing when I am compared at this level.”
Be it cinema or theatre, acting is acting. I enjoy every kind of role, be it small or big. I was there a little bit in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha (2015), and for other films, too, my approach has been the same, I just immerse myself,” he adds.
