So, how did a singer rise to the ultimate heights of fame – and that too, not in singing but in acting? It all started with Shoaib Mansoor’s critically acclaimed movie Khuda Kay Liye.
But it was Humsafar that earned him a fan following many dream of. His role as the male protagonist Ashar managed to pull on the heart strings of everyone. And his role as Zaroon in Zindagi Gulzar Hai made us love him even more. But is it so easy to win the hearts of millions? No. It’s his immaculate acting skills that won him hearts not just in Pakistan – all over the world.

Back To the Rock Star Roots!
Many of you are already familiar with the rock star Fawad Khan – especially if you are a 90s kid, but for those who are living under a rock, Fawad Khan rose to prominence in singing after joining the band EP. But as Fawad Khan started appearing on the TV Screens, music took the backseat for him, and eventually he stopped making music altogether.
While many of us were not expecting it, not after many failed tries to bring the singer in Fawad back, Pepsi did it!
The rock star turned heartthrob was named as one of the judges for the Battle of the Bands alongside Meesha Shafi, Atif Aslam, and Shahi Hasan. Seeing him as a judge in the show was a treat to watch, to say the least.
Wonder how many of us actually get the chance to judge a show that you were once a contestant of? Not everyone’s that lucky. But of course, with this reunion, Fawad Khan’s career came full circle. We also hope we get to see more of EP after that amazing reunion.
