Fardeen Khan turns to real estate

Actor Fardeen Khan, away from media glare after films like All The Best, Life Partner and Dulha Mil Gaya, is working on his late father, actor-filmmaker Feroz Khan’s dream real estate project in Bangalore. Fardeen has signed a joint venture property deal with a renowned company to build a residential complex, Gold Country, over a plot that he owns in the city, near Chikkabidurakallu, close to FK Farms.
When asked, Fardeen, who attended the Pune Warriors’ first match at DY Patil stadium on Sunday, confirms his involvement, saying, “It’s a bit early for me to speak about the project. I would prefer to talk about it when we make an official announc-ement soon.”
The actor is also said to be in talks with a couple of production houses to produce four-five large-scaled films. One of them is his father’s ambitious Qurbani remake, for which Fardeen had reportedly said last year that Sanjay Dutt had agreed to play the part of the honest cop played by Amjad Khan in the original.
He had also said that he’d be a part of the film. Then, news made rounds that Shah Rukh Khan had come on board. Another speculation was that the project had been shelved. To this he had said, “Dad had always wanted to remake Qurbani. I’ll produce it now. There are so many movies my dad made ahead of his time. I think they need to be told to this generation that’s oblivious to Feroz Khan’s movies.”
But when asked about the recent developments at FK Productions, Fardeen says, “I am in the process of finalising a couple of films which I am very keen to produce and act in. But I’m a bit superstitious about discussing details before pen is put to paper.”
