This is not the first time the cricketer will be experimenting in the acting field. Fawad previously made a cameo appearance in drama serial Ghar Damaad that aired on PTV. However, the news of him starring as the lead in Khudkash Muhabbat has so far received mixed reactions from social media users.
Some congratulated him, others shared a sigh of relief that he did not choose politics as an alternate career while many turned the decision into a joke.
