This Actor Left Bollywood After Consecutive Flops, Had Interfaith Marriage, Comeback After 14 Years

Fardeen Khan, son of the immensely popular actor, late Feroz Khan, debuted in the world of glamour in 1998 with the film, Prem Aggan. The film, which was written and directed by Feroz Khan, flopped at the box office but made Fardeen a fan favourite due to his charming looks. Over the course of a decade in Bollywood, the actor starred in popular films like Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, Om Jai Jagadish, Bhoot, No Entry, Dev, Fida, Heyy Baby, and many more. Unfortunately, his acting failed to leave an indelible impression on the audience, and consequently, he decided to take a hiatus from the industry.

While he was active in the industry, Fardeen’s name was linked with the actress, Celina Jaitely. But there wasn’t any truth behind those rumours. While the handsome lad took everyone’s breath away with his boyish charms, he fell in love with the daughter of the legendary Bollywood actress, Mumtaz. Moreover, when his acting career tanked, Fardeen went on to focus more on his family. However, did you know that his love story is nothing short of a classic arranged-to-love tale? Here’s everything you need to know about Fardeen’s love story.
