Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who continues to set many hearts racing with his suave looks and effortless performances, says he really enjoys watching Ranbir Kapoor’s films.
“I am a big fan of his work. I have enjoyed most of his performances,” says the 34-year-old, who will be seen in a cameo role in film-maker Karan Johar’s next directorial venture, which also stars Ranbir, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.
“I shot with Ranbir for the first time for this film, but that was hardly for three or four days in Austria. Before that, I had briefly met him in London, UK, when he was shooting for the same film,” says Fawad, adding, “He is a chilled out and relaxed guy. But our interactions have been limited in number. I am looking forward to a shooting schedule that allows us to spend more time together.”
The actor is also full of praise for Aishwarya. Recalling the day they met for the first time at a film screening, Fawad says, “Aishwarya is so pretty… I had seen her without my glasses, and even then she was looking fabulous. But since I was not wearing my glasses [at the screening that day], I had to first check with my manager if it was actually her (laughs),” he says.
Incidentally, Fawad worked closely with Ranbir’s father, Rishi Kapoor, in their last release, Kapoor & Sons. He says he found the senior actor’s crankiness “extremely entertaining”. “His jokes were so much fun. He is so young at heart. He also took good care of me,” says Fawad.
