Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, whose latest movie, Kapoor and Sons is release this Friday, revealed that he turned down Rajkumar Hirani’s PK because of his commitment to this movie.

The 34-year-old actor said, “When I was approached by the filmmaker, I completely lost my mind because I got such a good opportunity. But unfortunately I could not commit as I had already given my commitment to Kapoor and Sons,” reports the Express Tribune.

The Khoobsurat star added, “I only let any opportunities go when I am aware of all the aspects, but I regret it when I have to leave an opportunity due to commitment issues, which is in the case of PK.”

Fawad was offered the role of the Pakistani character, Sarfraz, in the film, who falls in love with Anushka Sharma’s character. The role was later given to Sushant Singh Rajput.

Directed by Shakun Batra, Kapoor and Sons that also stars starring Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in key role will hit the theatres on March 18.
