Imran Abbas Memorable Eid With Dilip Kumar in Mumbai
Pakistani model turned actor Imran Abbas is the next new face in the Bollywood movies. He currently in Mumbai for the shooting of his upcoming debut film Naam Hai Boss, a remake of Vyshakh’s Malayalam film Pokkiri Raja (2010). Imran will be sharing the screen with Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in the movie.
Imran tells us, “It’s been over two weeks that I am in Mumbai. The shooting of the movie will start from next month, at the moment I’m just busy getting trained for fight and action scenes that I need to do for the movie. The other day I was doing my fight training at the Juhu beach and my skin literally got burnt and tanned in the heat. Seriously it’s not easy to be an actor, you need to know much more beyond acting. I consider myself lucky to have got the chance to act in Bollywood movies. It’s a great learning experience for me. Every day I get to learn so many new things. The Indian cinema industry is so professional and well organized I wish we had the same scenario in the Pakistan film industry too.”
On the Eid day, Imran missed being with his family. He says, “I missed my family, relatives and friends a lot on the Eid day. I spoke to my parents and they conveyed their wishes to me over the phone. But I got lucky to celebrate my Eid with Dilip saab and Saira Bhaaji at their Pali hill residence in Mumbai.I had gone to wish them personally on the Eid day and they were very happy to see me.” He blushes, ” When Saira Bhaaji saw me she smiled and said ‘koi itnabhi khubsurat ho sakta hain. Then Dilip saab added , ‘Itna haseen ladka agar humare paas na aata to humari badqismati hoti .. is ki maa ne kya kha ke pedakiya tha ise.” Imran added, “At first I just blushed and I didn’t know how to react. But of course those words coming from a legend was a huge motivation for me. I have grown up hearing a lot of stories about Dilip saab from my father and till date there is a huge list of fan followers of Dilip saab in Pakistan.”
