Mumbai: Imran Khan is considered to be the King of recent Bollywood Romantic Comedies. With his ultimate chocolate boy looks (Just like his Mamujaan Aamir Khan’s), his boy next door innocent looks; he is swooning Indian ladies stealing their hearts away, quite successfully. He has been born into a Bollywood family literally, with Naseer Hussain as his grandson. Being born into a rich legacy always helps. His parents separated when he was a baby and it is then Imran took up the surname Khan, from his mother Nuzhat, instead of his father’s surname Pal.
He has started his career as a child artist playing baby-Aamir in movies like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander. His real break in Bollywood came with Abbas Tyrewala’s Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na starring alongside Genelia D’souza. His role as cute and adorable ‘Jai’ won him the Filmfare Best Debutant Award for his role. The movie was one of the cutest romantic comedies Bollywood has ever produced.
Imran gave a couple of flops after his first stupendous hit. His movies Kidnap, Luck, Break Ke Baad flopped badly. Break Ke Baad got him great reviews from the critics for his sizzling on screen chemistry Deepika Padukone. I Hate Love Storys did fairly well but wasn’t a hit either. People liked his role and went on to make him more popular.
His next release, Delhi Belly was both commercially and critically a big hit. The movie with its unusual language and crisp story-line made Imran a star all over again. He came out of his usual boy next door roles to try his hand at something different and gladly enough, he succeeded well at it. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan opposite Katrina Kaif garnered mixed reviews from the critics but did a good job commercially.
2012 is going to be red letter year for Imran professionally with two of his very important movie slated to release this year. Pasand Apni Apni, which is a sequel of the famous comedy film starring the Aamir-Salman Khan duo named Andaz Apna Apna. Karan Johar’s Ekk Main Aur Ekk Tu is slated for release on 10th February, 2012 starring Imran and Kareena. The movie is set inLas Vegas and elaborates the story of two young people and their alcoholic misdeeds in the city of Sin. The movie is purposely slotted for a Pre-Valentine’s day release to get more audience to watch it.
Imran has pictured himself a stable and responsible guy in his personal life. He hasn’t been linked up with any of his co-stars no matter how great an on-screen chemistry is pictured. In 2011 he married Avantika Malik who is his long-time sweetheart and the couple is happily married. They celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 10th January, 2012 and reportedly Imran is going to gist his wife a luxury customized car. He is turning 29 this year. Here is our entire teaming wishing him a very Happy Birthday and good luck for his next venture. We would be more than delighted to see him shine bright.
