Famous Dramas Rejected by Fawad Khan

Lahore, 7th July: The heartthrob of the Pakistani drama industry, Fawad Khan, has graced our screens in a number of blockbuster dramas. The drama that brought him in the limelight was ‘Humsafar’, in which he starred alongside Mahira Khan.

He has also showcased his talent in the Bollywood industry by being a part of three movies, Khoobsurat, Kapoor and Sons, Aye Dil Hai Mushkil.

However, due to tensions between the two neighboring countries, Indian production houses canceled all contracts with our stars.

‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ was the last local project to air in 2013 in which Fawad Khan was cast. After that, he hasn’t been a part of any local drama or movie. However, his Pakistani movies are in pipeline and viewers are eager to see them as soon as the cinemas reopen.

Fawad Khan is also famous in the industry for rejecting scripts rather than accepting them. He has, therefore, rejected various projects which later turned out to be super hit dramas.

Saqday Tumharay:

This drama, written by Khalil-ur-Rehman and directed by Mohammad Ehtesham Uddin, is said to be the real-life story of Khalil-ur-Rehman. This too was offered to Fawad Khan but he rejected it, despite the fact that Mahira Khan was cast as the leading lady, with whom he had worked in ‘Humsafar’ and had gained a lot of fame.


This famous 2013 drama serial, directed by Yasir Nawaz, was also rejected by Fawad Khan, but it went on to become a blockbuster nonetheless. The final cast included Ayesha Khan, Adeel Hussain, and Sanam Saeed.



Another very successful drama that was initially offered to Fawad Khan, but he rejected the script. This was directed by Mahreen Jabbar and the leading cast including Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed. It aired before the release of Humsafar.

Mata-e-Jaan Hai Tu:

This drama, which was based on the novel of the same name written by Farhat Ishtiaq, was also offered to Fawad Khan but later Adeel Hussain was cast into the role, alongside Sarwat Gilani as the leading lady. This drama also proved to be a blockbuster of its time.

After reading this list, we can only wonder what it would’ve been like if Fawad Khan had accepted these roles, but then again these queries will remain unanswered for he rejected them all.
