Not very long ago, some jaw-dropping pictures of a lean and physically fit Fardeen Khan had gone viral on social media. Well, this surely stunned fans and ever since then, they have been expressing their wish of seeing the No Entry star make a comeback to the big screens. However, things weren’t always the same for Fardeen, as he was also body-shamed for gaining weight before this transformation. During that phase, the actor was quizzed about trolls while at an event’s red carpet. His response to the same was epic.
In a throwback clip, Fardeen Khan was asked about how he deals with those trolling him for his weight. The actor laughed it off and said, "I'm being bashed unnecessarily. I think they need to get over these damn things but I really don't care. I am what I am. I can see myself in the mirror so somewhat of it is deserved, is deserved.. what's not is not. I just laugh it off. I don't really read much about myself anymore now."

Meanwhile, Fardeen was recently spotted exiting casting director-turned-filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra’s office, making fans wonder if collaboration is on cards. Reacting to the overwhelming response that he has received upon his transformation, Fardeen said to HT, “It felt good to get a warm welcome. I didn’t even know that there was a photographer. People are so generous and talking about how I looked, it most certainly feels good. When you take a break and attempt to get back, especially when so much has changed in the industry, it is daunting. Such a reaction make it bit easier. It felt good that people are still interested in you and haven’t forgotten you.”
