3. For his second Hindi film, Khan took on a powerful role as the elder dutiful son in Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons (2016) where painful secrets threatened to destroy the Kapoor family.

4. He had an easy chemistry with co-star Alia Bhatt who played the carefree Tia, who was initially attracted to Rahul.

5. There were moments in the film when Rahul allowed himself to let go and just be himself. The critics were unanimous in their praise for his natural performance.

6. Fawad had a short, but significant role in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil as Anushka Sharma’s former flame, DJ Ali.

7. It’s easy to see why Sharma’s Alizeh was still hung up on her ex.
