‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ fame Imran Khan hasn’t been in a movie for a while. The actor, who is getting ready for a much-awaited comeback, recently talked about how he decided to give up acting in 2016 during a dark period. He expressed to Vogue India his desire to “fix” himself and become a better person for his daughter Imara.
According to Vogue, Imran’s life has undergone numerous changes since he left the movie industry. He sold his Ferrari to fund his modest lifestyle, which now consists of living in an apartment in Bandra after leaving his opulent Pali Hill bungalow. The actor is really leading a modest, eco-friendly life—so much so that he continues to proudly don his ten-year-old suit, which he wore again for his niece Ira Khan‘s wedding.
Imran Khan gets candid:
During the interview, Imran stated, “I felt broken on the inside in 2016. Thank goodness, I was rewarded financially for my work, so by the time I turned 30, money was not a concern for me. It wasn’t my career at that point because I wasn’t motivated to put in the necessary effort to pursue it. Everything that wasn’t necessary gradually disappeared. Having just become a father, I thought, ‘This is important. I consider this to be very serious. For Imara, I wanted to be the best version of myself. I made the decision that being an actor was no longer my job. I had to take care of myself now in order to be the best version of myself for my daughter.”
Avantika Malik, Imran’s wife, is not with him. Their daughter Imara is shared by them. Aamir Khan’s nephew Imran is allegedly seeing actress Lekha Washington. Katti Batti, in which Kangana Ranaut costarred, was Imran’s most recent release. At the box office, the movie was a failure. He was watching films at home a lot during his disappearance.
In the same interview, he explained, “I started working backwards because I wanted to understand some things after Katti Batti flopped. Which songs from the previous two or three years had been the biggest hits? Which were the films that had made my peers successful? Do I enjoy those films? If they had been presented to me, would I have accepted? The response was consistently negative. And that gave me some clarification. Actually, I just wanted the films I was in to be successful.”
