In a recent interview, actor Imran Khan candidly delved into his cinematic journey, reflecting on his notable roles and offering insights into his perspective on past projects. Imran, renowned for his performances in films like the romantic comedy "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" and the audacious crime comedy "Delhi Belly," took a trip down memory lane, reminiscing fondly about these movies. However, during the discussion, he shed light on the shifting perception of his film "Luck" based on external viewpoints.
Speaking on the IFP YouTube channel, the actor shared his recent revisitation of previous projects. To his delight, he found the progressive and non-toxic nature of films like "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" and "Break Ke Baad." However, the sentiment took a turn when he addressed "Luck," a 2009 release, revealing that his own perspective on the film had evolved.
Imran disclosed that his comeback journey began with an Instagram post about "Luck," anticipating a response but not expecting the overwhelming level of engagement it received. Characterizing the film as a disaster, he recalled the harsh reception it initially faced. People, figuratively, wanted to "tar and feather" him, expressing intense displeasure for his involvement in what they deemed a "horrible film." Imran conveyed, “You don’t understand how weird this is to me. When the film released, it was a disaster. They tarred and feathered me, they took me out back to shoot me behind the latrines for taking part in such a horrible film.”
The actor expressed his unease when someone praised "Luck," questioning the sincerity behind the compliment. He found it remarkable to reshape his perspective on a film he considered shameful, acknowledging the unexpected enjoyment some derived from it. Imran concluded that this revelation made him feel that the time invested in the film wasn't wasted, offering a unique insight into the complex relationship between an artist and their work.
