Fawad was the first Pakistani actor to win a Filmfare award for Best Debut in India for his first Bollywood film Khoobsurat. However, Mehwish Hayat is honoured the award first time.
Along with Fawad, Mehwish Hayat, Javed Sheikh and Hasnian Lehri from Pakistan also attended the event. From India, Filmfare flew in Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar, Dia Mirza, Jackie Shroff, designer Manish Malhotra and several others.
Fawad, who has previously worked in Karan's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, was also seen at the event with the director and designer Manish Malhotra.
