Fawad Khan ventured into Bollywood with Sonam Kapoor starrer Khoobsurat back in 2014.
While the film garnered quite positive reviews, with critics lauding Fawad on his stellar performance, the former EP frontman’s career in Indian cinema was cut short – precisely two years later – after India’s ban on Pakistani artists.
But seems like producer of the film, Rhea Kapoor just might be thinking about a sequel!
Taking to Instagram, during a Q&A session with her fans and followers, Rhea said she missed Fawad and Sonam together.
Anil Kapoor and his daughter Rhea had joined hands with Walt Disney Studios to co-produce Khoobsurat, which is a remake of the 1980 Rekha-starrer eponymous film.
Khoobsurat, which was made with a modest budget of INR120 million, was released across 800 domestic screens on September 19. In India alone, it has collected INR190 million after one week its release four years back.
The film was also released in 18 international territories, including North America, Britain and Pakistan, on nearly 300 screens, and had minted over $2 million in global earnings initially.
Vice president and head of marketing and distribution at Studios — Disney India, Amrita Pandey had said that Khoobsurat appealed to audiences of all age groups, making it a “great family entertainer”.
“In India, the movie saw a great growth trajectory at the box office, as collections doubled from its release on Friday till Monday,” she said.
Fawad was last seen in a cameo in Karan Johar helmed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, while Sonam was last seen in multi-starrer rom-com, Veere Di Wedding.
