Father-in-law on Imran Khan quitting acting

On November 17, Internet went ablaze that Imran Khan has quit acting and the news was dropped in an interview by his close friend Akshay Oberoi. Since then, Imran Khan’s big decision has been a Talking Point. Imran, however, has not come out with any official statement yet.
This evening, ETimes spoke to Imran’s father-in-law Ranjev Malik who did not contradict what Oberoi had divulged. Said Malik, “Honestly, it’s Imran’s personal decision and it’s not my domain either. But yes, Imran was always inclined towards direction right from the days he went to a film school.” More than acting? “Yes,” replied Malik, “And well, he’s working on it and will make it happen.”

Now, ETimes has it that one of the issues between Imran and Avantika was that he wanted to leave acting while she wanted him to pursue it: she wanted him to push himself as an actor. But Imran had made some sort of peace with himself that he will take up a film as an actor only if the role is terrific. We asked Malik if his daughter wanted her husband to continue what he was doing and Malik said unhesitatingly, “Yes, I guess, she did.”
And why was that, we asked? According to Malik, “Imran was doing well.” This makes us wonder if Imran had decided to do away with acting even when he was doing films at a decent pace.
Sources also say that Avantika wanted Imran to otherwise start producing movies which will have him in the lead.
Did Imran ever discuss with Malik that he was saying goodbye to acting? Though Ranjev and his wife Vandana are not together anymore, Ranjev attends all family functions and the four of them are very cordial with each other. Malik said, “No, he did not. But honestly, I wouldn’t like to interfere in his career moves. Even I wouldn’t like it if someone interfered in my business.” And Malik eschewed a similar ‘their personal decision’ sentiment when asked if Imran and Avantika (who have been living separately since 2019), would patch up and be a couple again.
We at ETimes wish Imran every luck in his new and every endeavour.
