Once Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan’s friendship was the stuff of Bollywood legend and, of course, humorous memes. The duo gave us generation-altering hits like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’. Those days are gone; or so it seems. Word in Bollywood is that a new Khan has taken SRK’s place in Karan Johar’s pet list.
Fawad Khan was seen in ‘Kapoor and Sons’, which was produced in part by Johar’s Dharma Productions and will be seen in Johar’s next movie, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. Reportedly, the two have become good friends over time.
Fawad Khan ventured into Hindi cinema in 2014 and became an instant hit with females of all ages. He has been seen in a number of Hindi movies and is also popular with television audiences due to the airing of Pakistani soaps in India. It looks like Fawad Khan’s Bollywood career is going to be a highly successful one.
It is now being said that Fawad Khan and not Shah Rukh Khan will be Karan Johar’s first guest for the fifth season of his celebrity chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’. In addition to that, Karan Johar’s next movie, titled ‘Raat Baaki’, will pair Katrina Kaif and Fawad Khan. Looks like Johar has a new favorite, all right.
