Imran who was busy promoting

Break Ke Baad

in London and New York, says, “Yes, I have been told that I will have to shoulder the responsibility of promoting

Delhi Belly

.” The film has an ensemble cast and Imran is one of the protagonists. However, in a crowd of lesser-known actors like Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Poorna Jagannathan, Shernaz Treasurywalla and Vir Das, Imran is the most saleable name. Interestingly, the role was offered to Ranbir Kapoor earlier and after he opted out, Aamir signed on Imran who was riding high on the success of

Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Naa

. Directed by Abhinay Deo,

Delhi Belly

is gearing up for an April release.
