“Imran has finally locked in his comeback project, nearly eight months after he hinted at the possibility of returning to movies last year. He will star in and as Happy Patel in a quirky comedy produced by Aamir Khan Productions. The film is a laugh-riot and is set in a familiar yet uniquely fresh world, reminiscent of Imran’s previous works. Shooting has already commenced in Goa,” Peeping Moon quoted its source as saying.

Why Imran Khan took a break from films
Earlier, in an interview with Vogue India, Imran Khan had shared the reasons behind his extended hiatus from acting.  

“I hit a low in 2016 where I felt broken inside. Luckily, I was working in an industry that had rewarded me financially, so by the time I was 30, I didn’t have to worry about money. At that point, it wasn’t my career because I wasn’t excited by it enough to want to work hard for it. I had recently become a father and thought, ‘This is valuable. This is something I take seriously.’ I wanted to be the best version of myself for Imara. I decided it was no longer my job to be an actor. Now, I had to fix myself; be at my healthiest and strongest for my daughter,” he had told Vogue India. 

Imran Khan has worked in films like ‘Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na,’ ‘Delhi Belly,’ ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ and ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.’ His last on-screen appearance was in ‘Katti Batti’ opposite Kangana Ranaut in 2015.
