He also talked about the groupism and bias in Bollywood. Sharing his own example, he recalled the time when Aamir Khan had turned 50 and during his birthday bash, filmmaker Karan Johar insulted him. “If your work flops, they don’t treat you well; they don’t even look at you and it has happened with me. On my brother’s 50th birthday, I was looked down upon by someone, I don’t wish to take the name. But, Karan Johar acted weird with me; he put me down. He insulted me when I was trying to talk to someone and trying to disconnect with the person I was talking to. So, a lot of such things have happened and even I have been through it.” Also Read - NCB Director General: Viral Video From Karan Johar's Party Has no Link With Drug Case

Faissal Khan is now gearing to make a comeback in the industry but as a director and singer in the action-thriller Factory. He was last seen in Chinnar Dastan e-Ishq (2016) but was not able to identify himself in the film.
We hope this time he will be able to showcase his acting prowess and will be back with a bang.
