Fawad Khan has been nominated for the best supporting actor in 62 Jio Filmfare Awards 2017. The actor had already received the Filmfare Award for the best debut actor in 2015 for his movie Khoobsurat.
Fawad Khan is not the only actor to make it to the Filmfare. This time he is in the race of award for his work in his film Kapoor and Sons, and he is coming to Rishi Kapoor for the best supporting actor (male) in the same movie.
This year three Pakistani singers also have nominations for their work. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has the nomination for the Jag Ghoomeya, (Sultan) Atif Aslam the Tery Sang Yara (Rustam) and Qurat-ul-Ain Baloch Kar Kari (Pink).
Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan are already ruling the Bollywood with their mesmerizing voices as a playback singer; both have received a nomination for songs in the past too. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has already won the Filmfare Award for Dil to Bacha Hai Jee, Ishqiya.
We don’t know whether the Pakistani nominees would go across the border for receiving their awards or not but an appreciation of their talents is indeed much encouraging it would further pave the way for cooperation in the field of arts, provided the political conflict between both the countries comes to an end.
