Fawad Khan, the singer, takes US by storm : India Times


After wrapping up his schedule of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' in Jaipur with co-stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, Fawad Khan is on his annual month-long musical and charity tour in the US with his wife Sadaf and son Ayaan. The 34-year-old actor first landed in Seattle on April 30 and addressed an audience of 200 students on what are perceived as "third world countries.

" Dressed in a three-piece suit, Fawad looked khoobsurat as he stuck to belting out 'Bolna' from his last release, 'Kapoor and Sons,' while the gathered guests sent in requests for more numbers. "It is my favourite song and thank you for such a warm reception, Seattle," he shared on social media with a video of his performance.


Fawad was one of the founding members of the Lahore-based Entity Paradigm, an alternative rock band which was dissolved in 2007. He has since been pursuing a solo music career and even hummed a few lines of 'Chand Si Mehbooba Ho Meri' in the Shakun Batra film. On May 3, he headed to Dallas and performed at the Islam Relief USA (IRUSA) fundraiser where 20 volunteers joined him on stage.

"The family celebrated Mother's Day with a cake and a private dinner on Sunday in New Jersey, which was the next destination of the tour. On Monday, they were joined by award-winning photographer, Asim Farooki, and jewellery designer, Samreen Vance, who specially flew to America for the conference," informs a source close to the actor.

Amidst the tour, with five more cities to go to, including Washington DC and New York, Fawad has been obliging his fans at the venues with pictures, before he returns to Pakistan by May-end, where he will begin filming 'Albela Rahi' - a biopic on the legendary Urdu pop singer Alamgir. The actor plays the 61-year-old musician in the film. He promises to be back in B-town once the details of his third film are fi nalised. A nother Dharma Product ion, maybe?
