Bollywood actor Fawad Khan has captured millions of hearts with his good looks and acting skills by now. His transformation from a prince in "Khoobsurat" to a Punjabi guy in "Kapoor and Sons" is quite captivating.

He will now be seen as a hot DJ in Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. Earlier, there were reports that Fawad is doing a cameo in the film, but the actor reveals that his role is the backbone of the story.

"It's not exactly a cameo but it becomes a backbone for a certain conflict of a character in the movie. It's like 15-20 days of work. My role is that of a DJ. So it's cool. I have tried something new altogether, I am wearing a completely new costume. I wouldn't mind playing a cool guy character or a complete buffoon as well," Fawad told Press Trust of India.

"Right now I am experimenting (with) these things. I am loving the stuff I've done in the film, the walk, the talk, the way you carry yourself. It's competent different from what Rahul Kapoor (character he plays in "Kapoor and Sons") is," he added.

Scheduled to be released Oct. 28, "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is being touted as a complicated love story produced by Dharma Productions. Apart from Ranbir and Anushka's romance, the audience will also see Ranbir and Aishwarya's chemistry. The flick is believed to be a love story about a man falling for a woman older than him.

Meanwhile, the Pakistani heartthrob is busy promoting his upcoming film "Kapoor and Sons." The movie is a Punjabi family drama that also stars Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajat Kapoor.
