The Khoobsurat actor (pun intended), Fawad Khan has taken Bollywood by storm and has become the talk of town after winning his first Filmfare award for Best Male Debut. There have been a lot of talk as to which films Fawad is doing next with many speculating that he could be offered a Dharma Productions film. There was even talk that Fawad will starring in Madamji opposite Priyanka Chopra, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
A leading daily has reported that Fawad has been finalized for Reema Kagti’s upcoming film, Mr. Chaloo. Fawad will be playing a womanizing con-artist. We will see him wooing women and then cheating them of their money. Reportedly, Fawad was locked in for the film when he recently visited India for the Filmfare Awards.
A source close to the makers (Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani) of Mr. Chaloo says, “The makers and Reema are convinced that Fawad will be able to convincingly pull off the role of a suave charmer, who cons women into losing their heart to him and then cheats them out of their money. For him too, it’ll be a welcome change from the quintessential stiff upper-lip royal that he essayed in his first film”.
Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut were supposed to be in Mr. Chaloo, however, both have backed out of the film. Saif left citing “remuneration issues”, while Kangana reportedly left for Sujoy Ghosh’s upcoming film, Devotion of Suspect X in which she has been paired opposite Saif.
