She became the most searched celebrity during her Bigg Boss 5 stint. But talk about adult star Sunny Leone and actor Imran Khan, who made an appearance on the show recently, pleads ignorance.
"Sunny who?" he asks, and when we tell him about her claim to fame, he says, "Unfortunately, I haven’t followed her career (chart)." Fill him on the fact that she is doing the sequel to Jism and he is indifferent. "Oh is she? Very good," says the happily married actor, who is more pepped up about his next, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (EMAEK), with Kareena Kapoor.
"I’ve always wanted to work with Kareena you know. It’s something very special. She doesn’t come with any stress. She will do this beautiful job and she is not worried about herself," says Khan, adding, "And this one is not just a boy meets girl and they lived happily ever after story. It is much beyond that."
One, however, can’t fail to notice his filmography boasts of chocolate boy roles with outings such as Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na, I Hate Luv Storys, Break Ke Baad, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and now this one.
"It’s more of a result of how I look at it. Generally, producers and directors look at me like that, so I get offered these roles. And I’ve always had a lot of success. Most of my great successes have been in that area. As an actor, you wish to play many roles but in my case it doesn’t really connect."
Buzz is that EMAET has references to Hollywood flicks such as The Hangover and What Happens in Vegas. But Khan retorts, "There’s nothing really close to that."
On Sunny Leone
Sunny who? Unfortunately, I haven’t followed her career (chart) …
I’d like to do something of that sort in life. Let’s see when. As of now, I am enjoying my acting career. But I’d never act and direct in the same film.
On Aamir’s son Azad
I haven’t had the time to go and play with him but he is good. It was a struggle for Aamir and Kiran. They had a hard time. It was a bad phase for them when Kiran had a miscarriage, so I know it means a lot to them now. They are happy.
