There’s a significant buzz surrounding Imran Khan’s potential comeback in Bollywood. Recent hints dropped by Imran Khan himself suggest that he might be gearing up for a major return to the silver screen. Recently, Prateik Babbar alluded to the possibility of Imran Khan embarking on a new project, indicating that something exciting may be in the works. However, there’s nothing official as of now. While we cherish Imran Khan’s social media post, Vishal Bhardwaj who has worked with the actor on Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola feels that we all are a bit ‘biased’ towards him.
During a conversation with The Lallantop, Vishal Bhardwaj explained, “I feel we all are a bit biased. We have been conditioned to think a certain way about Imran. I am not saying he is Uttam Kumar or Dilip Kumar, but we have been conditioned. He has never said that he is a weak actor.”
Recalling about his film with Imran Khan, Vishal Bhardwaj also shared that the actor was not initially offered the role, “The role was to be initially played by Ajay Devgn and he left this film for Son of Sardar. It was such a long time ago, we both have forgotten this. But there was so much anger in me because of the number of films I have made, the double of that have been shelved including Midnight’s Children, which was very close to my heart. And whoever was available at that time, I made the film with him,” he said.
Actor Imran Khan, most popular for his romantic comedies, is on a virtual journey to “reconnect with my films and adjust the way I feel about them”. As part of his process, the actor shares behind-the-scenes photos from the sets of his films, accompanied with some unheard anecdotes. Imran’s fans are eager with anticipation for the actor to announce his comeback film. Despite early commercial success, Imran faced setbacks when his films Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Katti Batti did not perform well. He did make a comeback as a director in 2018, helming the short film Mission Mars: Keep Walking India, but did not pursue a career in direction thereafter.
