Ac­tors Im­ran Khan and Kan­gana Ra­naut spent an event­ful hour chat­ting and an­swer­ing fun ques­tions dur­ing their visit to HT City to meet the win­ners of Stars In The City Con­test. Both the ac­tors shared that they some­times have to deal with tricky sit­u­a­tions and an­swer inane ques­tions. Kan­gana, for in­stance, is ab­so­lutely fed up with ques­tions about her ca­reer. “When a ques­tion starts with, ‘Ac­tress ki shelf life toh do teen saal hi hoti hai, toh aap uske baad kya karengi?’ Kyun main koi sabun ki tikiya hoon kya jo life do saal ki hoti hai? It is so lame!” she said, laugh­ing. For Im­ran, it’s ques­tions about his un­cle, ac­tor Aamir Khan, that irk him. “When the ques­tion starts with, ‘Apke Maamu …’ I know that I want to slap that per­son,” he joked.

Talk­ing about how some fans get un­com­fort­ably close while try­ing to click a selfie, Kan­gana said: “It is not very com­fort­able when peo­ple put their hand around your waist … it’s very weird.”

Im­ran, too, faces sim­i­lar is­sues. “Let me give you a male per­spec­tive here. When I take photos with girls, there is al­ways this very ex­cited hug. But when I pose for a photo with guys, their hand im­me­di­ately goes to my be­hind. I have to tell peo­ple, ‘Sir, apna haath thoda upar le li­jiye’,” he said.

When ac­tors Kan­gana Ra­naut

and Im­ran Khan vis­ited HT City to meet the win­ners of the Stars in the City con­test, and pro­mote their up­com­ing film, Katti Batti, they bonded well with their fans. In a free-wheel­ing chat with Sonal Kalra – Na­tional Editor, En­ter­tain­ment and Lifestyle, the stars spoke about their ex­pe­ri­ences with fans, work­ing with each other, and how Kan­gana was never in­vited to Im­ran’s par­ties.

What is the weird­est thing a fan has done for you?

Im­ran: I have been bit­ten by a fan. It hap­pened in Dubai when we were go­ing to a night club and I was shak­ing hands with ev­ery­one. This one girl just grabbed my hand, pulled me close and re­fused to let go. Then she bit my hand.

Kan­gana: My fans are re­ally sweet. They write me love letters, which say that I look like their lost wife from their past life. Im­ran: While you get love letters, I get bit­ten.

What is the one thing about Im­ran that got to you?

Kan­gana: I think he made a lot of friends. He made friends on the sets with peo­ple who were play­ing his friends in the film. I used to hear sto­ries about them par­ty­ing in his house and hav­ing beer and kababs, and I was like, ‘Why am I not in­vited? This guy is weird.’ The next day, he was his usual friendly self, and de­scribed the par­ties to me, show­ing not a sin­gle hint of awk­ward­ness.

Im­ran: She is veg­e­tar­ian. Isko kya khi­layen?

But, how was it work­ing with Kan­gana?

Im­ran: I had a blast work­ing with her. The one thing I re­ally like about her is that she is very ded­i­cated to her work. I have worked with peo­ple who just walk in. And while they may be very sweet, you wish they might have put in more ef­fort into the film. Kan­gana is one per­son who comes and tries to im­prove ev­ery day. These are the kind of peo­ple you re­spect.

Any movie you think you shouldn’t have said no to?

Kan­gana: None ac­tu­ally. I made the most of my op­por­tu­ni­ties. I have done more than what I was of­fered to me.

What is the one thing you love about the film in­dus­try?

Im­ran: You might read a lot of sto­ries about peo­ple fight­ing in Bol­ly­wood. But some­how, when it re­ally comes to it, the in­dus­try comes to­gether and we don’t give up. There is a sense of sol­i­dar­ity, which I like.
