Bollywood actor Imran Khan
might be just 10-films old in the industry, but he is ready to turn producer. The Jaane Tu.. star will revive his grand-dad Nasir Hussain's films, reports a daily.
Nasir Hussain was known for his musical hits like Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai (1961), Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1963), Teesri Manzil (1966), Baharon Ke Sapne (1967), Pyar Ka Mausam (1969), Caravan (1971), Yaadon Ki Baraat (1973) and Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977).
Nasir's son Mansoor Khan also made hit films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992) under his banner. His last film was SRK-Ash starrer Josh.
Now Imran Khan will revive the banner and the legendary films of Nasir Hussain.
Meanwhile, Imran Khan is busy with Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2. The actor who would be playing a gangster in the film plans to make incognito visits to areas like Dongri in Mumbai and observe the lives of the residents up close.
“Since our lives are so different and our experiences are only based on what we read or see in the movies, I want to spend time in these localities without acting like a tourist to understand my character and the world he lives in better. Most gangster movies are cool and stylised, but the heart’s not in it,” reasons Imran.
“A diction coach can only get you so far. To understand the subtle nuances of the language and the mannerisms that set the people apart, it’s necessary to imbibe the local colour. That’s why I want to visit these so-called taporis, not all of whom are gangsters, before starting Milan’s film,” he adds.
The actor isn’t new to research of this sort as he spent a month-and-a-half in Delhi interacting with boys from Rothak, before he started shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola, to get his Haryanvi accent right.
