Fawad made his debut with the 2014 Sonam Kapoor-starrer 'Khoobsurat' in the role of a young prince. The actor said his main focus is to choose substantial roles in films.

"I just don't want to be an eye candy in a film. For me, as an actor, meaty roles are what I rely on. (Like) dancing is not one of my fortes, so I feel the ability to try, and get into different characters which involves you being taken to a completely new avatar," Fawad told media in an interview.

The 34-year-old rose to prominence in the 2007 Pakistani movie 'Khuda Kay Liye', before gaining acclaim for his Pakistani TV shows 'Humsafar' and 'Zindagi Gulzar Hai'. When it comes to versatility, Fawad looks up to Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and the actor aims to attain that kind of career graph.

The actor will be next seen in Shakun Batra-directed 'Kapoor & Sons' along with Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt.

The film is about two estranged brothers, who are forced to return to their childhood home when their 90-year-old grandfather wants to see them.

Fawad will be seen playing the character of Rahul Kapoor, who is the 'picture-perfect, apple of the eye son' of the family.
