Bollywood actor Imran Khan who made his debut with film Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na in 2008 is making headlines after his good friend Akshay Oberoi revealed that he has quit acting.
Turns out Imran is keener on pursuing filmmaking as Akshay was quoted saying in a recent interview with Navbharat Times, “See, Imran Khan has left acting at the moment. As far as I know, there is a better writer and director inside Imran, I do not know when he will direct his film himself, I am not going to put any pressure, but as a friend, I think so he will direct his film soon.”
Did you know that in 2018, the Bollywood actor was mistaken as Pakistan’s Prime Minister with the same name. While the confusion has been inevitable on social media, the actor also happened to receive an email addressed to the Pakistan PM, one day.
The mail sent to actor Imran Khan read as follows, “Dear Prime Minister Imran Khan Sahib. A successful leader takes the right decision at right time. He recognises true friends and supporters and selects faithful team members. Now it is ten years long governance and I want to join your team on the very first day.”
Imran was so amused reading the mail that he decided to play along by not only sharing it on social media but also responding to it like as if he was the PM. “I guess I can no longer ignore the call to action. Gonna start drafting some policy outlines this week, I’ll keep you guys updated,” wrote Imran in the caption of his post and left everyone in splits.
However, Netizens were impressed with Imran’s hilarious reply to this case of mistaken identity.
Imran, who is also Aamir Khan’s nephew, made his Bollywood debut with Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na and instantly won over the audience. His good looks and innocent acting was liked by the people.
He continued to prove his mettle as a versatile actor from one film after another right from I Hate Luv Stories, Delhi Belly, Ek Main Aur Ek Tu among others. Unfortunately, his journey didn’t turn out to be as successful as expected and he went off the movies since Katti Batti, co-starring Kangana Ranaut, his last film that released in 2015.
