In December 2020, Fardeen Khan, the son of the late legendary Feroz Khan, had confirmed that he was ready to get back to acting. It’s now been reported that Fardeen’s comeback project is Sanjay Gupta’s production entitled Visfot (the explosion) where he will share screen space with Riteish Deshmukh.
When I contacted Fardeen he said, “We are in talks.”
In an interview to me in December 2020, Fardeen had said, “I never thought I’d be away for so long. But it happened. Initially my wife Natasha and I had to move to London because we were having challenges (to face) in having children. In 2013 we finally had our daughter. Four years later our son was born. Each time there was a bundle of joy in the house it just took over our lives. I didn’t even know how when so much time flew by. I had to be up and down between Mumbai and London. Because we had chosen the IVF route it wasn’t easy for my wife Natasha. I had to be by her side.”
Initially, Fardeen thought he’d be away from Mumbai for only two-three years.
He sighed, “If only life were that simple! Being away wasn’t planned, I was dealing with circumstances. Now I am blessed with two beautiful children. And the time I’ve spent with them away from work has been so beautiful. My children and I share an amazing bond.I count my blessings every day, Subhash. I have a lot to be grateful for. Now I see the children a little more settled.I feel it’s time for me to get back to work. My return to work happened organically. It happened when it was meant to happen.Having returned I find the entire landscape of the film industry has changed.”
Fardeen made it clear he was open to quality work in Bollywood. “I’ve always been going back and forth between Mumbai and London.I spent half my time there and half my time here. This time I’m back with a purpose. I want to do good meaningful work. I think this is the new golden-age of cinema. It’s encouraging to see such a diversity of cinema happening.”
