Actor Imran Khan made his debut as the lead with Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na. Post that he appeared in movies like Meri Brother Ki Dulhan, Delhi Belly, I Hate Luv Storys, Luck among others. His last movie was Katti Batti that released in 2015. Though Imran has not confirmed quitting acting, his friend Akshay Oberoi earlier confirmed. Akshay had told Navbharat Times, “Imran Khan, my best friend in Bollywood, is no longer an actor because he has officially quit acting. We both studied together at an acting school in Andheri and even there, he was always interested in directing while I was in acting”.

Today, Delhi Belly clocked 10 years and in an interview, director Abhinay Deo opened up on Imran Khan quitting acting.

He told SpotboyE that he felt bad and sad when Imran decided to quit acting as he has high regard for the actor. “He is a great guy and there is anyway a shortage of good people in this world. He is one of the good guys and he should be there in this industry. He is a talented guy, whether in front of the camera or behind it. He is a trained filmmaker and a writer too. I feel he should get his creativity out in any form that he can. But I did feel bad that he did not want to act anymore,” added Deo.

He also said he offered a couple of films to Imran but he refused to do and Deo was taken back a bit by that as Imran has stopped acting. “But he didn’t want to go down that route at all as he was reinventing himself. I think every person has a process and I am sure we will see some spectacular work from him in the future,” said Abhinay.

Delhi Belly also starred stand-up comedian Vir Das, and Kunaal Roy Kapoor.
