Mumbai, May 15 : Actor-producer Aamir Khan feels his up-coming home production ‘Delhi Belly' starring Imran Khan could be a turning point for his young nephew's career.
Aamir launched Imran in 2008 movie ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', which was a huge box office hit. However, since then the 28-year-old is yet to deliver a hit film, but Aamir thinks that will change with ‘Delhi Belly'.
“I agree that after ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' Imran did not get much success. He has had moderate success. In the beginning of career, you do commit mistakes. I believe the journey of an actor is a learning process. If this film (‘Delly Belly') does well I am sure it will help Imran,” Aamir told reporters here while unveiling the first look of his latest home production.
“But he (Imran) has a lot of potential...he is always hungry to learn new things. For this film, he had insisted on a screen test which indicates he is aware of what he should be doing. He perfectly suits the role in ‘Delhi Belly'.”
Aamir Khan Productions' ‘Delhi Belly', directed by Abhinay Deo, revolves around three young men living together in a bachelor's pad in Delhi. The promos feature hot scenes and the movie has been given ‘A' certificate.
Shedding his chocolate boy image, Imran has shot the steamiest scene of his three-year-old career.
The film, co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures, also stars Kunal Roy Kapoor, Poorna Jagannathan, Vir Das and Shenaz Treasurywala. It releases on July 1. PTI
