ImranImran Khan pulled many fast ones on Sonam during a press conference in the capital to promote I Hate Luv Storys. Apart from calling her 'aunty' and 'blind', Imran had many more witty remarks up his sleeve.

"If you go by his looks, you'd never be able to judge him," says debutante director Punit Malhotra about the lead actor of his forthcoming venture I Hate Luv Storys. It certainly holds true for Imran, who looks like a serious person, but comes across as a funny guy.

"Contrary to his sweet looks, Imran is a devil to work with. Sonam is definitely an angel," says Punit about the actor.

Sonam, an aunty
You know what is he talking about when he constantly teases co-star Sonam Kapoor throughout the press conference held in Delhi for the promotion of I Hate Luv Storys. He warns the press people, "She can't see any of your faces. She's blind as bat. She can just see me and Punit."

Not only, this Imran Khan has also nicknamed Sonam as aunty. So when he refers to her as aunty during the event, Sonam explains, "He calls me Punjabi aunty all the time."

Sonam Kapoor also avenged her leg-pulling by saying that she won't work with Imran again and suggested that he should work in South Indian cinema now.

Imran, the stripper
Sonam Kapoor had earlier said in an interview that she'd work only with a co-star who'll strip. When asked if Imran has also stripped in the movie, he says, "I have some deadly shirtless songs and scenes. I've stripped more than the girls do."

No competition with Ranbir
When quizzed about his not-so-warm relationship with arch rival Ranbir Kapoor, Imran says, "I don't think I have any competition with Ranbir. Everyone has his own strengths and weaknesses. As actors, we have lots of choices today."

One man, multiple avatars
Imran Khan who is reinventing his looks with each film says he gets bored with similar kind of roles, so he explores. Says the actor, "I'm not comfortable with repeating myself. So I try to go for fresh look each time. I'm being offered different roles also, since a lot of new filmmakers are entering film industry.
