Mumbai, March 25 (IANS) Filmmaker Karan Johar, whose production “Kapoor & Sons” was released last week, is impressed with actor Fawad Khan for taking up the role of a homosexual in the film.

“His energy in ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is so magnetic. I have to say that he took up a role which many actors were worried to do, but it takes a brave man to play a brave part and brave part to make a brave film,” Karan said at the press conference of “Kapoor & sons”.

Fawad said that he shed his initial apprehensions about the role, all thanks to the “wonderful team” he worked with.
