Actor Imran Khan, who has returned to the silver screen after a gap of almost two years with “Katti Batti”, says he has never got better reviews and feedback in his career than what he has received for this film.
“I have got better reviews and better feedback than I have ever got in my career before. Consistently everyone is telling me that this is the best work of my career. That is huge for me,” Imran told IANS.
Imran, whose last three films “Gori Tere Pyaar Mein”, “Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara!” and “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola” failed to create magic at the box office, said the unprecedented response to “Katti Batti” made him believe that “it is the best film I have ever worked on”.
The “Delhi Belly” actor shared that very often his films have disappointed him as eventually they did not turn out as per his expectations, but this is the first time Imran feels that he has achieved exactly what he had in mind.
“I now have greater confidence in my sensibilities, in my instinct. Because I have found in the past that whenever a film of mine has failed, it has not been much of a surprise to me,” he said.
“Very often I find myself in the situation where I would feel like we are making mistakes, we are going wrong but either I would not have the guts to speak up or the director is a very big and a celebrated personality, or I would bring it up and would be told ‘don’t worry we will handle it, trust me’,” he added.
The actor also mentioned that he needs to trust his guts and instincts more often.
“Whenever I had that feeling that it is wrong, it has indeed turned out to be wrong, which means that I have to trust my guts more and trust my instincts more. So if it is giving you the feeling its wrong, one has to speak up,” the 32-year-old added.
Talking about his future film projects, Imran said he has not signed any project yet, putting a lot of faith in “Katti Batti”.
“I very seriously wanted people to see “Katti Batti” and then I wanted to see what kind of work comes my way after that,” he said.
“Katti Batti”, which also stars Kangana Ranaut, is a romantic comedy directed by Nikhil Advani and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur under the banner of UTV Motion Pictures.
