Fawad Khan came into our lives with such a bang that one wonders what life was like before we knew he existed. From charming our socks off with his portrayal of a pompous royal in Khoobsurat to his brilliant outing in Kapoor & Sons, Khan won our hearts.

On his birthday, we catalogue a list of films that should be remade with him in the lead:

Any James Bond movie


Isn’t it weird that Khan hasn’t been approached to play 007? He would make the sexiest spy ever. This movie would leave us shaken and stirred.

Mr and Mrs Smith


It’s tough to beat Brad Pitt in the looks category but Khan offers up enough competition. Who would play Angelina Jolie’s character? Our pick would be Priyanka Chopra. Can a production house take this up already?

Fifty Shades of Grey


The sheer uproar this would cause . . .  we can’t even imagine the Box Office numbers.

The Notebook


Ryan Gosling is a charmer, that’s for sure. However, Khan is as old-school romance as they come. Who else would write their lover a letter every day of the year?
