Ac­tor Im­ran Khan (right) be­lieves that while hard work pays off, it is also im­por­tant to have luck on your side. The 32-year-old says that all that ac­tors can do is give their 100% to a project and leave the rest to destiny. “You can’t dis­count luck. Some­times things click and some­times they don’t. There are a hun­dred vari­ables that you can­not pre­dict. So I don’t even con­sider th­ese ar­eas. I think it’s im­por­tant to con­cen­trate your en­er­gies on what you can change,” says the ac­tor, whose last film Katti Batti along­side Kan­gana Ra­naut failed to im­press the crit­ics.

Im­ran says he never felt over­shad­owed by Kan­gana in the film. “You can’t com­pare your hits and flops with other peo­ple’s suc­cess­ful films. When we were shoot­ing Katti Batti, Tanu Weds Manu (2011) had not re­leased. Ev­ery­one has ups and downs in their ca­reers. Af­ter Queen (2013), Kan­gana’s next two films didn’t do well, but one is not wor­ried by th­ese things. You don’t sit and carry such stuff in your mind,” he says.

He is yet to take up more work and says that he is in no hurry. “I have burnt my fin­gers by tak­ing on films and not be­ing happy with the way they turn out. I re­ally need to be more choosy and par­tic­u­lar about the work I take up. I don’t want to be stuck with a prod­uct that I am not happy with,” he says.
