Mumbai: Aamir Khan thinks his soon to be released home production `Delhi Belly` starring Imran Khan could be a turning point in his nephew`s career.

Aamir launched Imran in the 2008 movie `Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na`, which was a box office success. 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 your 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 movie has been given `A` certificate.

Shedding his chocolate boy image, Imran has shot the steamiest scene of his three-year-old career for this film.

Co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures, `Delhi Belly` also stars Kunal Roy Kapoor, Poorna Jagannathan, Vir Das and Shenaz Treasurywala. It releases on July 1.
