His debut film Khubsoorat features quite a few fudged kissing scenes and Fawad Khan, the industry's new entrant from across the border, says he refuses to do intimate scenes as he doesn't want to hurt the sentiments of his core audience.
He is seen as one of the most romantic hero in Pakistan, and interestingly has earned the reputation without getting intimate in front of the camera. In Khoobsurat he is seen romancing Sonam Kapoor.
He said: ‘I didn't want to hurt the sentiments of my core audience. The audience that has got me where I am. I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing all my inhibitions. I just want to prepare the audience for a gradual change,’
‘What I learnt from doing the two serials is that audiences appreciate a romantic moment without physical intimacy,’ he said.
