What Went Wrong With Imran  Khan? 'He Deliberately Chose To Quit Acting,' Says Good Friend - EXCLUSIVE
He made  a very promising start with Abbas Tyrewala’s Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na on the same Friday as Harman Baweja in July 2008.Today  both Imran and  Harman have gone into oblivion.

What went wrong with Imran’s career? I remember how  insecure Harman was about Imran’s debut, after all, Imran had the mighty Aamir Khan as his Maamu(uncle). As luck would have it, Imran’s debut  was a hit. He was seen as the Next Best Thing alongside Ranbir Kapoor.

Imran had the best  of roles  rolling out at his feet. He decided to turn his back on stardom. So says his close friend Akshay Oberoi.  “He chose to quit. I can say that with certainty. He could’ve gotten  more work if he wanted to..But  I am not sure he enjoys fame at all.”

Uniquely, Imran has opted for  anonymity over fame. There is  no chance of a comeback.Imran is just not interested in being a film star.

A close friend  of Aamir Khan  says, “It is not that Aamir didn’t try to help Imran’s career. But after doing Aamir’s Delhi Belly (which Ranbir Kapoor had rejected) and some  more films  with top banners, Imran lost interest.

It’s not  very clear whether  he  wants to pursue another career. But  after  Zaira Wasim (who also has an Aamir connection as she was introduced as his daughter in Dangal)  Imran is another Bollywood star  to  turn his  back on stardom.

Imran is not  the  first person  in his  family to  quit stardom. His uncle filmmaker Mansoor Ali Khan also turned his back on showbiz.
