Imran Khan, still fondly remembered by his fans for his roles in films like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Break Ke Baad, and Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, chose to step away from acting after a string of underwhelming performances at the box office, leaving his admirers yearning for more of his work.
However, recent reports of his potential return to the silver screen have caused a stir on the internet.
During a candid interview as the cover feature for Vogue Magazine, Imran Khan recounted a humorous incident involving a fan during his time in London. The actor shared how a female fan, unaware of his identity, approached him for assistance in parking her car. Despite the unexpected request, Imran graciously accepted and proceeded to fulfill the task. It was only when another woman in the car recognized him that the situation took an amusing turn, leaving both parties slightly embarrassed. Imran humorously narrated the incident:
“While walking down a street in London, I noticed a car struggling to parallel park. As the door opened, a girl hurried out and asked, ‘Can you please help me park my car?’ Taking the keys from her, as I was getting in, another girl in the passenger seat exited. Amidst maneuvering the car into its spot, she asked, ‘Thank you. Thank you… are you?’ to which I responded with a ‘yes,’ and her realization dawned with an ‘Oh my God, Oh my God, it’s you.'”
In another segment of the interview, Imran Khan reflected on a challenging period in his life in 2016, which led to his decision to step back from acting. Despite financial stability, he admitted to feeling uninspired and lacking motivation. It was the influence of his daughter, Imara, that reignited his passion for work, prompting him to focus on self-improvement for her sake.
Recalling this phase, Imran expressed,
“I wanted to be the best version of myself for Imara. I realized it was no longer just about being an actor; I had to prioritize my health and strength for my daughter.”
Imran Khan also opened up about his struggles with mental health in a previous social media post dated September 5, 2023. He acknowledged the detrimental impact of social media on his well-being, citing the influx of negativity as a significant trigger. Despite the lingering effects of criticism, Imran emphasized his growth and resilience over time.
For those unfamiliar with his personal life, Imran Khan was previously married to Avantika Malik, with whom he shares a daughter named Imara. Despite their separation in 2011, Imran has reportedly found love again with his girlfriend, Lekha Washington, though the couple has not officially confirmed their relationship.
Imran Khan’s candid revelations have sparked conversations and garnered attention from fans and media alike, offering glimpses into his personal and professional journey.
