Imran Khan: I get paid when I work outside Aamir Khan Productions!
If you think that working with mamujaan Aamir Khan must be a cakewalk for Imran Khan, then you are mistaken. Even though it’s his own maternal uncle’s home productions that have brought him a lot of luck at the box office (and Imran doesn’t mind admitting it though he likes to mention that I Hate Love Storys was an exception), he also has to do a lot of mehnat for free! Recently, when asked if it was different working outside Aamir Khan Productions, Imran said, “The difference is that I get paid when I work outside Aamir Khan Productions! Aamir is very particular about budgets and all, and we travel by economy and stay at very at economy hotels when shooting. I get to stay in swanky hotels, get to travel by business class and get some special treatment when I work outside. When I worked on Jaane Tu Ya…Jaane Na and Delhi Belly, I was like a ghar ka aadmi. When I work for Dharma Productions and Yash Raj Films, I am made to feel like a star!” Now, we know you’ve got a good sense of humour, Immi, but let’s hope Aamir finds it funny too! Or else that meagre budget could be cut even further for your next film with AKP!
