If you are not oblivious to pop culture, you are probably aware that Imran Khan has been sorely missed on social media for a while now. In fact, 'Laut Aao Imran' was a popular hashtag a few days ago because fans missed the actor's endearing performances in classic Bollywood rom-coms. We came across a video from when a few A-list actresses declined to cooperate with the star because they did not recognize his value while he was still on hiatus.
When promoting his film Katti Batti with Kangana Ranaut, he discussed a period when Bollywood stars turned down his requests to collaborate. The most open response came from the actress standing next to him. Read on to find out more.
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Ahuja are just two of the A-list actresses with whom Imran Khan has collaborated in the past. But there was a moment when his movies weren't succeeding at the box office or with audiences. He stated the following in a Reddit interview clip: “Nikkhil (director Nikkhil Advani) had approached me very early for the film (Katti Batti), when I was promoting ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’. I ended up signing the film after Gori had flopped. And suddenly, I was in the position where the last couple of films had failed, and we did not have a lead actress. So Nikkhil approached one actress who said, ‘I like the film very much, but I don’t want to work with Imran. You change the hero, I’ll do the film.’”
Nikkhil Advani declined and assured the nameless diva that he would not change Imran Khan since he wanted to work with him. The director sought another well-known actor, but she too stated something similar, according to the actor. He disclosed what the actress had said, “I love the script very much, but I’ll only do the film if you drop Imran and take my boyfriend.”
Kangana Ranaut interjected at this point and remarked, “These are the girls who, after watching the trailer, are the first ones to text him. Aren’t they dumb? Who would call them wise people?”
Kangana Ranaut certainly has her co-star's best interests in mind. Please share your thoughts on Imran Khan's surprising admission.
