The good news is that uncle Aamir Khan is planning a big premiere for his nephew Imran Khan's debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jane Na for which he plans to invite the who's who of filmdom.

The bad news is that uncle Aamir has forgotten to invite Imran's other uncle Faisal Khan.

No problem
However, Faisal is not disheartened with Aamir's decision of not inviting him. "It doesn't make any difference to me. They cut me out from the family since the time I've won the case. They couldn't take their failure and thus decided to cut me off," he says.

Faisal also adds that one has to move on in life and that he has. He only feels bad about what his elder brother Aamir has done to him. " According to them, they have lost respect for me. But I have too much self-respect within me. I don't need them any more," he asserts.

Despite the fact that Faisal hasn't been invited for the premiere, he only has best wishes for his nephew Imran.

He feels Imran looks very confident in the promos which look good. "But the final decision is with the audience. Aamir will create hype around the film for sure, but the real decision makers are the audience," he adds.

Faisal is glad that finally, sense seems to have prevailed and Aamir is helping his family members. What threat? "In me, he saw a competitor and that's why he never cared to help me. But I guess Imran is too young to be compared to Aamir - may be that's why he finds it safe to promote him," Faisal concludes.

On the work front, Faisal says that he's working on couple of scripts. Very soon, he will announce his first project as director.
