On Monday night, after watching a special screening of Pooja Shetty-Deora’s Tere Bin Laden, Khan put up a picture of Deora, Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar and himself and tweeted, “Ali Zafar, me and Pooja Shetty, after Tere Bin Laden screening. I loved it! Must watch on July 16.”
Khan also put up a picture of Zafar and tweeted, “That's Ali Zafar guys! Watch him on July 16th. Super film!” Not too long ago, Khan had some sweet things to say about the Imran Khan-Sonam Kapoor’s soon-to-release movie I Hate Luv Storys: “Want to see IHLS, Imraan is shona dude. Seeing promos and loving it, all the best dude, think this is a big one. Happy for you shona!”
The Wanted star only gushes about actors and movies of those close to him. Since Hrithik Roshan is a friend, Khan recently wanted to know the fate of Kites. He had tweeted, “Who saw Kites? Is the movie good? Hope it is.”
A month ago, while sharing his opinion on movie criticism, Khan had said, “Sab (reviews) bakwaas hai (everything is nonsense)”. He quoted the example of his former protégé Himesh Reshammiya’s movie, Karzzzz, that received 5-star ratings but was an evening’s entertainment that he wouldn’t recommend. It’s a well-known fact that the singer-composer-actor and Khan had fallen out sometime ago.
For the benefit of the aam janta (common man), Khan informs that his brother Sohail and nephew Nirvaan saw the Jackie Chan-Jaden Smith starrer, The Karate Kid, and says they both loved the movie.
