Fardeen recalled the ‘tough time’ in his life and said, “I needed some time after I lost my father. It was a tough time for me on a personal level. There were other considerations also, which I have spoken about at other times. We were having challenges having children, and that’s when we decided to take the IVF route. That’s why I needed to take some time off. It wasn’t meant to be this long. I thought only for a few years…get everything settled, but things didn’t happen that way. Then, when my daughter was born, my heart melted, and I thought, let’s spend some time with her.”

He also pointed out, “But I was fortunate that I had the luxury to take that time off. It wasn’t deliberate or conscious, but having said that, when I look back, I wish I hadn’t taken such a long break. Definitely a regret on many levels.”

Fardeen recently featured in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's OTT debut Heeramandi. The actor played the role of Nawab Wali Bin Zayed-Al Mohammed in the series. Apart from him, Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Farida Jalal, Shekhar Suman, Adhyayan Suman, Jason Shah, and others also played pivotal characters. The period-drama show is set in the backdrop of the Indian independence revolution of the 1920s-1940s. The title of the series is derived from the red-light district of Heera Mandi in Lahore (present-day Pakistan) during pre-partition India. Heeramandi has recently been renewed for a second season.

Fardeen will be next seen in Visfot, produced by Sanjay Gupta. He is also a part of Mudassar Aziz's Khel Khel Mein, featuring Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vaani Kapoor, Ammy Virk, Aditya Seal, and others in crucial roles.
