Mumbai: Actor Imran Khan says that although he would like to revive his grandfather Nasir Hussain's film banner, the thought of doing so scares him.
Nasir Hussain has given Indian cinema several hit films like ‘Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai', ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon', ‘Tumsa Nahi Dekha', ‘Teesri Manzil', ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat', ‘Caravan' and others.
Though Nasir's son Mansoor Ali Khan had given a shot at continuing his father's banner by producing hits such as ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak' and ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander', Shah Rukh Khan-Aishwarya Rai film ‘Josh' (2000) was his last film as a director.
However, after that the Nasir Hussain banner has not come out with any film and now Imran plans to revive the production house.
“Emotionally, I would like to do it, but to be honest it is a scary thought. He (Nasir Hussain) had set certain standards with his movies and name. And whatever I do that will be in his name, so I don't want to take that lightly and make any film by adding his name to it,” Imran told PTI in an exclusive interview here.
Imran feels his grandfather had spent his entire life to create a name for himself so to make a film under his banner is something that he takes very seriously.
“If I make a film under his name then I am playing with his reputation, so I am scared of all this. But there is definitely an intention (to make a film). I would very much like to do it, but I would be very nervous. For me, it is a scary thought!” he added.
