Imran Khan to Make His Bollywood Comeback in 2024?

Bollywood actor Imran Khan has been absent from the screen for many years. Could he be set to make his big screen return in 2024?

Imran Khan hints at Bollywood Comeback f

"I am reading scripts and having creative conversations."

Imran Khan has hinted at when he will be making his return to Bollywood.

Imran is the nephew of Aamir Khan. As a child, he played the younger versions of Aamir’s characters in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992).

He went on to make his adult film debut in Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Naa (2008). He played Jai ‘Ratz’ Singh Rathore.

That debut projected Imran as the next big thing. Along with Ranbir Kapoor, he was touted as the most promising newcomer at that time.

However, things did not go smoothly for Imran Khan afterwards.

Most of his following films were failures at the box office. Such films included Kidnap (2008), Luck (2009) and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013).

Imran made his last film appearance as an actor in Nikkhil Advani’s Katti Batti (2015), in which he starred alongside Kangana Ranaut.

Katti Batti was also a critical and commercial failure for Imran.

Imran Khan previously hinted at a comeback but did not give a date.

Imran has now teased fans with news of a potential acting return in 2024:

“I don’t have a clear answer, but I am reading scripts and having creative conversations with filmmakers.

“So hopefully next year.”

Imran also spoke about how his love for cinema came about:

“My appreciation for cinema came as an audience. I loved watching films and being inspired by heroes.

“I enjoyed that feeling of watching a movie and losing yourself in that world and going on a roller coaster of emotions.

“It swept me away as a child. As a kid, I remember watching spectacle films.”

Imran also grew nostalgic about his debut:

Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Naa was true to what I am.

“In the ’80s, there [was a wave of] action films like Arnold Schwarzenegger movies but I never saw myself in those parts.

“I saw myself in Back to the Future kind of films.”

“I felt these characters were underrepresented in Indian cinema.”

In 2018, Imran Khan directed Mission Mars: Keep Walking India – a science-fiction documentary short film.

Imran previously spoke about how he felt he never got his due in the film industry. He delved into how credit for his successful movies went to the director:

“I have never felt I quite got my due.”

“I have often felt that in my career, I have done good films, hit movies, but the credit somehow goes to the director and people say, ‘he made him act’ or to the promotions.

“When a film flops, the responsibility is mine, and somehow all the flops I had have been with big directors.

“So I feel, ‘you are such established directors and all the blame is on me!’

“When I have given hits with first-time directors, the credit goes to the producers. This has been a trend throughout my career.”

Imran also separated from his wife Avantika Malik in 2019. After a 10-year courtship, they married in 2011.

Imran Khan shares one daughter with her named Imara Malik Khan.

Manav is a creative writing graduate and a die-hard optimist. His passions include reading, writing and helping others. His motto is: “Never hang on to your sorrows. Always be positive."
