Imran Khan: I absolutely have no interest in working in Hollywood!

The popular actor who has lent his voice to a character in the Hindi version of animation film Rio 2, says he is not keen on acting in Hollywood as not many good roles are written for Indian actors there

“I absolutely have no interest in working in Hollywood. I think you (Indian actors) get to be the nurse, someone who repairs computer or hero’s roommate, etc. I think they (Hollywood filmmakers) don’t write good roles for Indians,” said Imran Khan in an interview.

However, Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan have no qualms about doing small roles in a big international film. “Every actor will make a choice that is correct for them. The kind of roles that are offered to Indian actors are not very interesting. With no disrespect to anyone I think one gets to do a glorified special appearance. So no interest, I am very happy to work in India,” Imran said.

When asked if he would accept a decent role in a Hollywood film, he said, “As an actor if there is a very exciting role, I would be very happy to do it. But my observation, as I said earlier, is that those roles don’t come to Indians. They come to us when they need to sell their film in Hindi.”

Rio 2, the sequel to 2011’s hit Hollywood animation flick, will see Imran and Sonakshi Sinha featuring as the main voices of Blu and Jewel respectively in the dubbed Hindi version releasing on April 11.

Imran had seen ‘Rio’ and found it fantastic, but dubbing for a cartoon character in a Hollywood film was a different experience for him.

“It was a little odd because normally when you are dubbing, you are seeing your own face. You have to match it to the timing. The first day I had to guess when to move my lips and when to speak so it matches correctly,” Imran said.

‘Rio 2’ is an adventure comedy set in the Brazilian city of Rio De Janeiro. The movie will feature the return of Blu, Jewel and their three kids who leave their domesticated life for a journey to Amazon rainforest.
