So, who is the real ‘khubsoorat’ in the movie... Any guesses? You’ve got it! It’s a slim, bearded bloke from across the border. Same chap who has reduced the women on both sides to wobbling blobs of jello... haiiiiii... those eyes, that stare, the reluctant smile, the twisted mouth... and oooof - hair with a life of its own.

But no harm in opening the top three gold buttons to display a few chest hairs. Well, in the movie we get to see lots more of the skinny hero who must have been on a low fat diet for most of his adult life. Does anyone care about his patli kamar? Naaah!

Afsos ki baat yeh hai, ki he is married and a father to Ayaan... but, in our collective fantasy, we don’t bother about such faltu, real life details. We will behave like... like... Manju (Kirron Kher) in the movie and shamelessly drool each time Fawad takes in his breath and intones the royal “Hum...”
