Bollywood is loaded with new charming faces, two of them are Fawad Khan the Pakistani actor who will debut in Khoobsurat along with Sonam Kapoor and other charmer is Aditya Roy Kapoor. Fawad has already won many hearts with his serial Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Aditya Roy Kapoor has always be the man of dreams.
Fawad Afzal Khan, one of the most famous faces of Pakistan has drawn criticism for his decision to enter Bollywood, but he is not bothered with the criticisms and says art is something that travels across borders. He will be making his acting debut in Bollywood with film Khoobsurat — an official remake of 1980 hit of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s of the same name, opposite the gorgeous actress Sonam Kapoor. But even before the release, Pakistani actor Fawad has earned a huge name, fame and fan following, thanks to the show Zindagi Gulzar Hai on small screen, which was aired on Zindagi channel, a channel that’s a bridge between the two countries. When asked about his opinion on the criticism, he replied: “The people you are talking about are very few. There will be people who will criticize. They are entitled to their opinion. Even if someone from India goes to work there, someone or the other will make noise.” “Art is something that travels across all borders. Art knows no culture and creed. As an actor, I would like to explore myself. I do feel bad, but I choose to ignore criticism. I think to pay attention to it is unnecessary,” he added. Spoke like a wise! Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film Khoobsurat has been produced by Sonam’s dad Anil Kapoor the legend of Bollywood and Sister Rhea under the banner of Anil Kapoor’s Film Company Pvt. Ltd. The film features Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Afzal Khan, Ratna Pathak , Kirron Kher, Prosenjit Chatterjee, and Aamir Raza Hussain in lead roles.Fawad says, it’s an honour to collaborate with the Kapoors for his Bollywood acting debut.
Fawad who will be playing the character originally played by another legend Rakesh Roshan thinks that his character in this film is very unique and different from the original character. “I saw the original film as part of my homework. It is a timeless classic but our film is different. Rakesh Roshan played the role of a doctor and I play a Rajput prince, so it’s different in a way,” he said. While Sonam Kapoor, who has stepped into Bollywood’s queen of seduction Rekha’s shoes for the Khoobsurat remake.
Aditya Roy Kapoor will be seen in Dawaat-e-Ishq. Daawat-e-Ishq not only introduces the brand new never seen dashing couple of Aditya Roy Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra but also heeds Sajid-Wajid composing their first ever Yash Raj venture. Its obvious music enthusiasts are snoopy to know what is in stock for them from this out of the ordinary merger.
Daawat-e-Ishq’s songs have been penned by Kausar Munir while vocalists on the soundtrack include Javed Ali , Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Wajid and , Shalmali Kholgade. The title track is an energetic and catchy song which is a blend of qawaali and electronica sung by Javed Ali and Sunidhi Chauhan. The song is a well written conversation & the singers have validated it well. Kausar Munir’s expert grasp of Urdu is only outstripped by his impressive esculent aspersion. In all, it’s a energitic start to the soundtrack. In summary, Daawat-e-Ishq is possibly the most disappointing soundtrack from the house of Yash Raj. The tracks suffer from a serious case of dullness, outdated-ness and mediocrity yet Kudos to the bold experimenting of two different forms of music-Qaawali and western. All the best to the Daawat-e-Ishq team and we hope the film fares better.
The trailer of this flick featuring Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur is out and it looks absolutely mouth watering, delicious and tempting. The trailer opens with an interesting take over the orthodox yet strongly prevailing dowry system of our country, where Gulrez’s played by Parineeti Chopra father essayed by Anupam Kher is in a serious conversation with the groom and his family who are demanding expensively from the father of the girl before going ahead with the proposal. Later Gulrez, who dwells in Hyderabad, mocks them as she is a self-independent and broad minded lady and would never compromise down before the orthodox and unscrupulous society.
Aditya Roy will be seen playing ‘Lucknow ka aashiq Tariq’, a chef. Unsurprisingly and by chance the two meet and go to explore the lanes and the flavors of both the cities. Since, Tariq played by Adiya Roy Kapoor is an outstanding chef; he uses the delicious and mouth-watering local recipes of the city to impress and bind his love mate. But just a few moments later, the typical bollywood gimmick takes place and the lovely cute romance between the two sweet hearts is pushed on a halt when it’s known that something suspicious and witty is brewing in Parineeti’s mind.
This movie has drama, betrayal and agony in the later part which will keep you glued to the screen. Directed and penned by Habib Faisal, who earlier delivered hits like Ishaqzaade and Do Dooni Chaar, Daawat-e-Ishq looks fun, interesting and fascinating.
