Actor Imran Khan, who recently stirred a social media storm with his hints about a Bollywood comeback, shared a series of stills and behind-the-scenes pictures from the movie Kidnap. Khan captivated fans with a heartfelt caption that shed light on his memories and experiences during the making of the film.
Imran Khan shares candid moments and untold stories from his movie Kidnap; says, “I was not considered to have any star value, so the producers were not very enthusiastic about casting me”
Sharing the pictures, Imran wrote, “I was close to wrapping the shoot of Jaane Tu... when I was called in to audition for Kidnap. Director Sanjay Gadhvi was hot off the first two Dhoom movies, and I had a shot at playing antagonist to @duttsanjay so it was a huge opportunity! A number of young actors were up for the parts of Kabir and Sonia; I did screen tests with a couple of actresses before @minissha_lamba was locked, and she was tested opposite a few other actors.”
“Bear in mind that since Jaane Tu had not yet released, I was not considered to have any star value, so the producers were not very enthusiastic about casting me... I got the part thanks to dual support from the director, and writer Shibani Bathija, for which I am grateful to this day,” said the actor.
Imran further added, “Still, I was not important enough to be given a complete script; I was only allowed to read the scenes I was in, and was only given printouts of my scenes a day or two before they were scheduled to be shot. The Vikrant Raina storyline was a complete mystery to me until the release of the film! It was a very different working style than I had experienced, and I often felt intimidated by the scale of the production.”
Imran concluded by saying, “It was 2007, and I was still using a Nokia, so I simply don't have a lot of pictures from the shoot (@minissha_lamba any chance you've still got that picture you took? Post it if you find it!)... but thankfully I found one with Minissha! She was lovely to work with; intelligent, articulate, and self-assured. Here's us in Mauritius, enjoying the Awesome Mausam!”
