Imran Khan was last seen in Katti Batti co-starring Kangana Ranaut in 2015.
Akshay Oberoi said, “My best friend in Bollywood is Imran Khan, who is no longer an actor because he has quit acting. Imran is my best friend and close friend, whom I can get up at 4 am and call. Me and Imran have been with each other for almost 18 years, we studied acting together at Kishore Acting School in Andheri West.” When asked if after quitting acting, will he take up direction or writing, Akshay mentioned the next choice totally depends upon Imran.

As far as I know, there is a better writer and director inside Imran, I do not know when he will direct his film himself, I am not going to put any pressure, but as a friend, I think so he will direct his film soon. Also, when Imran directs, I know he will make a wonderful film because his sensibility and understanding of cinema is very high.”
