Mumbai: Bollywood’s enfant terrible Salman Khan may have umpteen admirers, but it is Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan and his nephew Imran, who are in complete awe of the actor.
Following his uncle’s footsteps, Imran Khan hero-worships Salman and is totally “crazy about bhai”. Recently, while giving an interview, Imran professed his extreme liking for Salman as he said, “I have idolised him since my childhood. I remember my mother pointing out to Salman years ago and telling me, ‘That is Salim saab’s son.’ Salman was a dude even then.”
Even though Imran finds it hard to explain his fascination for Salman, the actor states, “For me, the man is a mystery that I am trying to unravel. In my head is a plan to bring out a coffee table book on bhai. I just want each page to have one small aspect of Salman with exclusive photographs. I’m actually gathering different accounts on him from various people so that I can compile them to make my book.”
Speaking on his one wish, Imran said, “I want to spend a night drinking with Salman. Unfortunately, at the moment, I’m on a super strict diet and I’m not touching any alcohol. But some day in the near future, I plan to ask Salman if I can spend an evening with him.”
Well, Salman is not the only person, who Imran is tremendously fond of. Imran also shares great vibes with Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan, who played his uncles in his debut hit ‘Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na’ as he said, “Ever since then, they treat me like their nephew. Whenever I’ve bumped into them, they make it a point to ask me how I am doing. Arbaaz asks, ‘How are you kid? Is all okay with you?’ I just love the way they make me feel,” while adding, “But my feelings for Salman are something else. I like him, respect him and I’m fascinated with him. It’s a heady mix.”
