First acting, then photography and now journalism: Bollywood's talented actor Imran Khan seems to have a knack for everything. Offering a few tips for today's journalists, Imran suggests a good interview should be like a good conversation instead of being an "Exam sheet".
"Most journalists have an exam sheet which comprises - what is your favourite colour, your favourite holiday destination, what you like to do in your free time. This is not an interview, this is a questionnaire. I feel to make a good interview, be it print, radio or TV, it has to be a conversation. Fifty percent of the job is yours, half the job is mine. That is how you make a good interview," the 29-year-old said here at an event.
The actor revealed if ever given an opportunity, he would love to interview actor Salman Khan who, according to him, rarely opens up.
Imran's Ek Main aur Ekk Tu releases Feb 10 and stars Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani, Ram Kapoor and Ratna Pathak Shah.
Meanwhile, Imran's next with Vishal Bhardwaj, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, is set to go on floors Feb 14.
