He was often bullied by his schoolmates because of his shy nature. During an interview, while talking about the same, Fawad said, I was picked on and I was bullied in school. Now I look at it in a very funny way, I studied in an American school and the idea of brown and white people just didnt mix too well, I think, I was kind of bullied that way as well, and also because I was the quiet one in the class. I dont like confrontation, I avoid it. I hate arguments. I actually dont know what I was doing in school. I think I daydreamed and slept my way through classes.

Fawad had a crush on her, but he was shy to express his feelings. So, he first added Sadaf to his social media account and started chatting with her. Soon, they became good friends. During an interview, while sharing an old incident, he said that when he was 17, he met with an accident, and while he was admitted to the hospital, his friends came to visit him and told him that Sadaf was asking about him. At that time, Fawad realised that Sadaf too had some feelings for him. After he was discharged from the hospital, he asked Sadaf for a meeting. A few days later, they both met, and after a few days, Fawad proposed to her. Sadaf accepted the proposal, and they started dating each other. After completing their schooling, they took admission to different colleges.

In an interview, while remembering those days, Fawad said, Two years later, he called me to say that he was directing a sitcom and asked if Id like to be in it. He told me I would make Rs 3,000 per episode. I quickly did the mental math and realised I would be taking home a cool Rs 12,000 Pakistani rupees. I felt like a king When I did join the industry, I did it with a heavy heart. I used to find TV sub-standard and thought no one watched it. But when my shows received a mad response, I realised I needed to pull my socks up and take this medium seriously..In college, Fawad formed a music band named Paradigm which became quite popular in Pakistan.
