Nikhil Advani, the director who delivered hits like Kal Ho Na Ho and D-Day is very keen to cast Imran Khan as the leading man in his next project which is untitled. The director also is busy with another project, Hero, which will see the debut of Sooraj Pancholi, son of Aditya Pancholi.
The film which is said to carry some unique elements will have Ileana D’ Criz playing the female lead in all likelihood. However, there is no official confirmation yet on the rest of the cast.
Imran Khan had recently lent his voice to the Hindi version of Rio 2 for the character Blu.
The actor, who was last seen in films like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! And Gori Tere Pyaar Mein was unable to fare well with commercial success. His films have been performing very poor lately, the last hit being Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu with Kareena Kapoor. The films such as Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Bombay Talkies could not do much to this ceebrated nephew of Aamir Khan.
Hopefullly, the fatherhood and Nikhil Advani’s project should turn things around for Imran Khan.
