In a star studded ceremony, at the Yash Raj Studios on February 31, the Filmfare award for the best debut male was given to Khoobsurat fame Fawad Afzal Khan.
Fawad first became a household name in India with his show Zindagi Gulzaar Hai and later won hearts with an adorable performance as a Rajasthani Royal in Khoobsurat, opposite Sonam Kapoor.
With this Fawad has become the first Pakistani artist to bag a Filmfare award. No other actor from Pakistan has ever won this honour.
He posed with his wife Sadaf after the victor.
