New Delhi, July 6 (Calcutta Tube) He might be basking in the success of his recent hit ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ but Bollywood’s chocolate boy Imran Khan rues the absence of superstar uncle Aamir Khan in his career.
‘Aamir is really busy with his own career. He is generally very caught up with his own work. Being busy as he is, he really doesn’t have the time to babysit me,’ Imran told IANS.
The 27-year-old shone to glory with his launch vehicle ‘Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na’ produced by his maternal uncle. He, however, saw failures in future outings ‘Kidnap’ and ‘Luck’.
Asked if something was in the pipeline for the nephew-uncle duo to star together, Imran said: ‘Nothing on the cards right now. In life, if something good comes up, I’m sure we’ll do it.’
Tigmanshu Dhulia moves on from ‘Paan Singh Tomar’
His biopic on soldier-turned-athlete-turned-bandit ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ might be still awaiting a release but director Tigmanshu Dhulia has moved on to two more projects – a love story and a film on boxing.
‘My next film is called ‘Milan Talkies’ and it’s a small time love story produced by UTV. We have just signed Prateik Babbar for the lead and we are yet to decide someone for the female lead,’ Dhulia told IANS.
‘Then there’s another film I am doing which is called ‘Bhiwani’. It is on boxing. The script for the same will take sometime as of now but when I heard the idea, I liked it and so I’ll make it,’ he added.

Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty is upset that of small-budget meaningful films in India find ‘no takers’.
‘I tried doing films apart from commercial ones but the depressing part is there are no takers for meaningful cinema today,’ Mithun told IANS.

A love story of a couple in their twilight years, ‘Phir Kabhi’ also stars Dimple Kapadia.
