After making his debut as a director for a short film ‘Mission Mars’, Imran Khan is looking to his next project said to be a feature film, but has said it wouldn’t be for his uncle Aamir Khan’s film.
Reported on Deccan Chronicle, in an interview the ‘Katti Batti’ (2015) actor explains why it wouldn’t be possible to direct his uncle at this moment in time. “A star of that stature cannot be directed by a young, inexperienced director. For example, if you’re a first-time director and you’re making a movie with Amitabh Bachchan, what will you tell him? Will you be in a position to say that you’re not happy with a shot and that you want to do one more take?”
Having been away from the Bollywood scene for quite some time, Khan was asked if the prospect of making his comeback made him feel nervous. “If I look for the approval of a critic, a producer, or the audience, it means they have some influence over my decisions, and I don’t want that to be the case. There is nothing that any of them can give me. I only want to be part of quality films, and nobody is giving me that anyway; so I have to make them myself. It doesn’t matter to me that I’ve been out of sight,” said Khan.
