The handsome actor who forayed into Bollywood with 2014 film ‘Khoobsurat’ opposite Sonam Kapoor enjoys a huge fan following in India. He was much appreciated for his role in ‘Kapoor & Sons’ and is garnering a lot of attention for Karan Johar’s upcoming directorial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.

Nitin confirmed the news to a popular publication and said, “We go on floors with Fawad sometime next year. He is locked in. We are currently in the process of getting an actress on board.”
