Filmfare honours Fawad Khan with Best Cinematic Icon award
Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan has been honoured by Filmfare once again.
Fawad was honoured with the title of Best Cinematic Icon Pakistan/India at a Filmfare event held at Bollywood Parks in Dubai last night.
The actor is in Dubai for relaunch of Filmfare Magazine (Middle East) and while India has banned Pakistani talent from its film industry, the event provided a platform for artistes from both countries to come together.
Fawad was the first Pakistani actor to win a Filmfare award for Best Debut in India for his first Bollywood film Khoobsurat.
Along with Fawad, Mehwish Hayat, Javed Sheikh and Hasnian Lehri from Pakistan also attended the event. From India, Filmfare flew in Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar, Dia Mirza, Jackie Shroff, designer Manish Malhotra and several others.
Fawad, who has previously worked in Karan’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, was also seen at the event with the director and designer Manish Malhotra.
One could hear fans screaming “I love you Fawad” when his montage played.
Fawad Khan is joined in Dubai by Mehwish Hayat, whose film Punjab Nahi Jaungi has proven to be the highest grosser in the history of Pakistani cinema as well as Javed Sheikh. From India, Filmfare flew in Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar, Jackie Shroff and several others. We’ll be bringing you the full story later.
