Sharing some pictures from the film, he wrote, "Yet another throwback, and this one comes with a story that needs to be shared! My character in EMAET had a difficult relationship with his father, never able to assert himself and express his true feelings. In the end, he finally snaps during a fancy dinner party and tells his parents that he doesn't want the life they have chosen for him. It was a challenging scene, and I was anxious to do my best."

However, what truly stands out in this post is Imran Khan's tribute to his co-star and mentor, Boman Irani. On the day of shooting the crucial dinner scene, Boman Irani, known for his versatile acting, approached Imran in his trailer. Boman not only ran through the entire scene but also provided invaluable insights into the layers of subtext within the dialogue. He pushed Imran to excel, offering unwavering support and encouragement.

He further wrote, "Side note, most 'senior' actors don't waste their time hanging around set if they're not directly facing the camera. I can't tell you the number of scenes I've shot with stand-ins for the big men, and an assistant director giving me their cues. On the day that we were to shoot the dinner scene, I was in my van, when there was a knock on the door. It was @boman_irani asking if I would like to rehearse with him! I was thrilled, of course. He ran me through the entire scene, pointing out layers of subtext, pushing me, encouraging me, supporting me... and when we started shooting my parts, he stood behind the camera, feeding me his cues with extra passion to push me on. He may have played a callous, insensitive character in the film... but to me he was one of the most generous actors I've had the pleasure to work with. A true gentleman."
