For Imran Khan, who turned 33 on January 13, it was a quiet birthday with wife Avantika and daughter Imara at their Bandra residence. “I dropped my daughter off to school and picked her up, followed by regular ghar ka khana. A few friends dropped by in the evening,” shared the actor, adding that celebrations will kick off in Goa this weekend with family and friends. “It’s one of Imara’s favourite destinations. I remember how much she loved it when I took her to the beach once.”
He is quick to add that he’d never agreed to be a part of Anand L Rai’s Hindi remake of RS Prasanna’s Tamil hit, Kalyana Samayal Saadham, which now features Kartik Aaryan and Shruti Haasan. “I was offered the part in early 2014. I had seen the original and liked it but since it was being made in Hindi, the setting had to be changed. I asked them to come back with a Hindi script. That never happened. They simply announced that I was doing the film with Shruti (Haasan). I opted out of it in mid-2015,” he explained.
