Fawad Khan, alongside Karan Johar, hosted India’s most prestigious award ceremony, IIFA Awards 2016, held a couple of days back in Madrid, Spain. He is the first Pakistani actor to do that and that alone is no small feat.
Fawad Khan’s entry was only one of the many electrifying parts of the IIFA Rocks 2016. Bollywood director, producer, actor and India’s finest host, Karan Johar welcomed his co-host with great zeal, and a deafening round of applause greeted him on the stage. The crowd came to life with the wildly popular song, Abhi Tou Party Shuru Hui Hai, from Fawad Khan’s Khubsurat.
As if people weren’t already going gaga over Fawad Khan’s killer good looks, the heartthrob showed the crowd that he can sing, too! Before Fawad Khan made it big, he was part of the music band Entity Paradigm better known as EP, which he formed with Ahmed Ali Butt. Nostalgia kicked in when we watched Fawad Khan sing after all these years. Fawad’s rendition of Kal Ho Na Ho was beautiful and his co-host got emotional because this was from the film, Kal Ho Na Ho written by Karan Johar.
No Indian award show is ever complete without some cheesy, over the top humour. Fawad Khan wooed the gorgeous Sonakshi Sinha by singing Chaudvi Ka Chaand.
Videos and pictures of Deepika Padukone kneeling down on one knee before the heartthrob have been making rounds on social media lately. The dimpled beauty was swept off her feet and after watching Fawad Khan sing Roop Tera Mastana, you can’t really blame her.
The two hosts altered the lyrics of popular songs and it was definitely one of the most entertaining bits of the show. The effortlessness and ease with which Fawad Khan pulls it off is truly remarkable. There’s no denying that Fawad Khan oozes charisma.
