If you belong to the late 90s generation and grew up watching romantic Bollywood films, then we are sure that you had a tiny crush on Imran Khan. Sadly, we have to say with a heavy heart that the actor has quit acting. He has already done very few films, and the last time we heard about him was when he became a father.
Recently, one of Imran Khan’s close friends, Akshay Oberoi, revealed that Imran Khan won’t act in films, but we would like to be behind the camera. He clearly said that Imran Khan has quit acting. It might have broken his fan’s heart because he had done many cutesy rom-com films in the past.
As we all know, Indian rarely creates films which can be compared with Hallmark films or South Korean films, but Imran’s films were an exception. His career began with his first film titled Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. He starred along with Genelia D’Souza, and the film gained huge attention from the young adults. Viewers loved the chemistry of the duo, who turn from friends to lovers. Even the songs became the life of any sort of party. Feeling nostalgic, no?
Then comes his next film, I Hate Love Storys, where he played the role of a cynical, commitment-phobic character along with Sonam Kapoor, who is a romantic and an emotional woman. It is said that opposites attract, and this is what happened in the film. The film was fascinating, which kept the viewers hooked to the screen till the end.
Then he starred with Kareena Kapoor aka Bebo in the film called Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, which addressed two characters from two different backgrounds who have a different outlook on life. His rom-com films proved that it had a substance which most of the films lack in this generation.
He stole the hearts of Indian audiences once again after appearing in Break Ke Baad with Deepika Padukone. The film is centered around two characters who are in a long relationship. This film left a huge impact on his fans, and they wanted to see him more, but now, he won’t do any films anymore.

Akshay further added that he doesn’t know when he will direct his movie, and he doesn’t want to put any kind of pressure on his best friend. In the end, he said that he knows Imran will create a wonderful film because his understanding and sensibility of cinema is very high.
