Exclusve interview with Bollywood Actor Imran Khan on his new film “Luck”
1. Tell us a little bit about the film Luck?
Well Luck is a concept film as well as a action thriller.
It’s about gambling with your life. I’m part of a high stake gambling ring, if you succeed, you win money & you go to the next level, failing means you lose your life. The film an up beat movie and moves away from the usual Hindi films
2. This is the 2nd film you’ve done with Sanjay Dutt, what do you think of his role in Luck?
In Luck Sanjay Dutt plays, the mastermind or you can say Big Don of the gambling ring. In the opening scene the stage is set as you will see Sanjay Dutt jump from a moving train, blindfolded, and his hands are tied behind his back – that's a totally crazy opening and you can judge for yourself what his role is- my thoughts on his role – simply igneous and it fits his on screen persona like a glove.
3. Your first film Jaane To Ya Jaane Na won you the Screen Award for Best Male Debut, How did you feel about getting the award?
I never won that award, and I never attended the Screen awards either that year. Maybe if I attended I might have won… ..
4. What did you think of the song Pappu Can’t Dance when you first heard it, did you ever think the song would become so popular?
The song was actually a last minute replacement in the film for another track called Talli. About 3 weeks before we were to start shooting Abbas Tyrewala who directed the movie & also wrote the script for the movie, turned around & said “I have changed the song around” The funny thing was I actually never liked the track the first time around & it took me a while to get used to it, maybe 8/9 times before it started to grown on me.
5. You made 2 films as a Child actor, both times playing your Uncle Aamir Khan as a child, but you’ve still to star with him as an adult, why is that?
Aamir & I would love to star together again in a film, but at the moment, there are no decent projects being offered, so until there is one that we’re both happy with, I guess we will not be seen together on screen.
6. What do you look for when you get offered a script / film role?
Oh that’s a simple one to answer. When I read a script, I would always think is this the kind of film I would go watch – would i pay money to see it? If the answer is Yes then I proceed with the film.
