It was a revelation of sorts. It was like, ‘wow it can go to this extent’. Of course, it was tough. It was a challenging time. But, you know, this business teaches you to have thick skin. You have to, sometimes take a few knocks on the chin. Then again, you got to question how much importance you give everyone's opinion to feel validated yourself. I mean, was I surprised? I wasn't. I had cut off from the industry for many, many years before that. So, I mean, even the fact that I received that kind of attention in itself, surprised me.”

He went on to explain the impact it had in his life and how he decided to move on from it as he continued, “Of course, it wasn't positive for me, but it taught me a lot. Yeah, it's a good introduction to this new age that we live in of social media. And after that, I just carried on with my life. I think you can kind of look at it philosophically, or you can look at it humorously, and find humor in it. But then at the end of the day, you can't let it break your spirit and that's something you got to just be focused on - focus on what's within your control, and focus on finding joy.”


Apart from this, Fardeen Khan is also expected to have some films in the pipeline which includes Visfot along with Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vaani Kapoor starrer Khel Khel Mein that was announced recently.
