Playing Casanova in IHLS not tough: Imran Khan
He may be engaged and committed to long time girl-friend Avantika Malik in real life, but that hasn't deterred actor Imran Khan from playing a flirt in I Hate Luv Storys, which according to him was not a tough task.india Updated: Jun 23, 2010 14:40 IST
"Playing Jay in ILHS was not a hard role. It was not tough to act what I am not in real life because the script was good and debutante director Punit Malhotra explained the character so well," Imran told PTI.
The 27-year-old actor said even though IHLS was a romantic comedy, his role cannot be compared to his debut role in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, in which coincidently his screen name was Jai.
"In IHLS, my character is Jay Dhingra. But he likes to call himself as Jay only because he does not like his last name. Jai of Jaane Tu... was an innocent, straight forward, good boy.
"But, in IHLS, he is a flirt, Casanova. He tries to date as many girls as possible. He lies to them and can go to any extent to woo a girl. He is a bad boy. He believes in dating girls and not in love," the actor said.
Besides, the difference in the characters, Imran, who plays assistant to a director played by Sameer Soni in the film, said the humour in IHLS is cheeky.
Asserting that he is satisfied with the way the movie has turned up, the actor said, "I hope the audiences also feels the same."
