Mumbai: Imran Khan, who is looking forward to the release of his upcoming film `Mere Brother Ki Dhulan`, was initially reluctant to do the movie as he did not find the story exciting enough.
"When director Ali Abbas Zaffar first told me about the title, I found it horrible and I thought the story may not be exciting," he told reporters after launching the music of the film here today.
"My mom happened to read the script and she told me `it is hilarious and I must do it`. When I started reading the script...and by the time I read the fifth page I was finding it extremely hilarious. And I thought I have to do the film. So I called up Ali and told him `I liked the story and I will do it`," the 28-year-old actor said.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, `Mere Brother Ki Dhulan`, a romantic-comedy, stars Imran, Katrina Kaif and Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zaffar in lead roles.
"I think Ali is governed by his sense of humour. He brought the best in me," the `Delhi Belly` actor said.
"Imran and I were offered two films together but it did not work out. When I was offered the film I liked it and I thought we should do it," Katrina Kaif said.
The film will hit the screens on September 9.
