Imran Khan of Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na fame turns a year older today. Reasons why we think we need more unconventional actors like him in Bollywood.
Imran Khan who made a smashing debut with the romantic comedy movie Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na turns a year older today. He was seen opposite Genelia D’Souza in the movie which was a huge box office success. Since then, Imran has had a see-saw kind of a relationship with films with only I Hate Luv Storys (2010), Delhi Belly (2011) and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011), making it to the hit categories. However, Imran Khan is one actor who is much more than being a celebrity. He is a social activist, a doting husband, and has an unconventional personality.
As he turns a year older today, we list down a few points which prove why we perhaps need someone as unconventional as him in Bollywood today:
2. Gospel Truth: Imran is one of the few celebs who is not deterred from taking a stand even if that means losing a project or relationship. Yes, unbelievable right? Recently, when the Me Too movement took India by storm, Imran spoke about Vikas Bahl, who has been alleged of sexual misconduct. He said, “I have heard his stories from three other actresses. Ranging from inappropriate touching to straight up saying that if you were cast in the film, what will I get in return.”
3. Doting husband: Imran married longtime girlfriend Avantika Malik in 2011. The two dated for over 10 years before they finally got hitched. Avantika’s constant hashtags of being the lucky girl are proof enough to know what a doting husband Imran is. At the time when relationship rumours make sure to keep celebs in news, Imran’s non-controversial life always springs up as a surprise.
4. Doting Father: Imran Khan and Avantika were blessed with baby Imara in June 2014. Imran has been on a sabbatical for a long time and has been making sure to be there with his daughter during her growing years. Their pictures together are a treat for fans and while we drool at them Imran also makes sure to participate in important conversations and lend support where needed.
Here’s wishing the actor, a very happy birthday!
