Fawad Khan is set to make a highly anticipated Bollywood comeback after an 8-year hiatus, starring alongside Vaani Kapoor in a Hindi romantic comedy film directed by Aarti Bagdi. The film, which will be shot entirely in the UK, explores the journey of two broken individuals who find solace and love in each other, aiding each other’s healing process. This project marks a significant return for Khan, who last appeared in the Pakistani blockbuster “The Legend of Maula Jatt” and the international series “Ms. Marvel.”

In addition to this film, Fawad Khan will be seen in the upcoming series “Barzakh,” reuniting with his “Zindagi Gulzar Hai” co-star Sanam Saeed. Khan, along with Pakistani stars Mahira Khan and Sanam Saeed, will also headline Netflix’s first Pakistan-themed original series, “Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo,” an adaptation of Farhat Ishtiaq’s bestselling 2013 Urdu-language novel.

Fawad Khan made his Bollywood debut with Sonam Kapoor-starrer Khoobsurat in 2014. Later, he featured in two big projects of Karan Johar-led Dharma Productions, Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. If reports are to be believed filmmaker Karan Johar had signed Fawad for several other Dharma projects as well including films opposite Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. One movie alongside Salman Khan was also claimed to be in the pipeline. But all these projects were shelved soon after the terror attack in Uri.

Vaani Kapoor, known for her roles in “Shuddh Desi Romance,” “Befikre,” “Bell Bottom,” and “Shamshera,” continues to build her filmography with upcoming projects like “Khel Khel Mein” and “Badtameez Gill.

In 2023, the Bombay HC dismissed the plea to ban Indian filmmakers from engaging Pakistani artists and said, ”patriotism is in devotion to country, not enmity towards another,” as per a report by Live Law. The bench of Justice Sunil B Shukre and Justice Firdosh P Pooniwalla felt that the petition lacked merit and observed that the Indian government just took a positive step in promoting international peace and security.
