Fawad Khan lost out on Aamir Khan's PK because of Kapoor and Sons

Actor Fawad Khan says that he had no choice but to refuse Rajkumar Hirani's blockbuster PK as he had already committed dates to his upcoming film Kapoor & Sons.

"When I was approached by the filmmaker, I completely lost my mind as it was such a good opportunity. Unfortunately, I could not commit as I had already given my commitment to Kapoor & Sons. I only let opportunities pass when I am aware of all the aspects, but I regret it when I have to leave an opportunity due to commitment issues, which is the case with PK," said Fawad in an interview for Kapoor & Sons.

The Pakistani actor was offered the role of the Pakistani character in the film, who falls in love with Anushka Sharma's character. The role then landed in Sushant Singh Rajput's lap. The film, starring superstar Aamir Khan, went on to become the highest-grossing film in the history of Hindi cinema, collecting more than Rs 300 crore at the Box Office.

Fawad's debut film Khoobsurat had released just three months before PK and he could have two releases in 2014 had he done PK. The gap between Khoobsurat and Kapoor & Sons wouldn't have seemed so big, considering he didn't have any release in 2015.

Kapoor & Sons, directed by Shakun Batra and also starring Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, is releasing on 18 March.
