Scared to revive my grandfather`s film banner, says Imran Khan

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 said,

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.
