After a much negative buzz against the Pak based actors in B Town and being ignored by many awards that have taken place so far, Fawad Khan has finally bagged a nomination. As per the recent buzz, the Filmfare awards nominations list has been released and as we go through the list, we found Fawad Khan’s name proudly standing in the category of Best Supporting Role. So far Bollywood has seen three awards names Screen, Golden Rose and Stardust that took place last year.
Most of the awards did honor some of the best performances delivered by actors in the year 2016. However, you could have noticed that none of them even nominated Fawad Khan for his role in Kapoor and Sons or Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. We understand that there was hardly much of the actor to see in the Karan Johar film. But the Pakistani heartthrob’s performance in Kapoor and Sons had left everyone spellbound.
The actor was so amazing in the film that it was soon reported how Karan Johar extended his role in his directorial ADHM! But with the drastic change in political scenario that affected the entertainment industry both in India and Pakistan, Fawad Khan had to return back. None of the Pakistani actors have found limelight here in Bollywood ever since then. Perhaps that could be the reason plus to avoid courting controversy, award functions decided to keep Fawad Khan’s name away from their nomination and winner’s list.
However, Filmfare has taken his name in the nominations list where he has a fair battle with performers like Diljit Dosanjh, Rishi Kapoor, Jim Sarbh, Rajkummar Rao and Rajat Kapoor. What’s more surprising is the fact that even Aamir Khan has been nominated in the Best Actor’s category. We as well as the audience has also understood the functioning of how award functions work where only celebs who attend the event get awards.
