Imran Khan recalls shooting for Kidnap: Wasn't important enough to be given a complete script

Imran Khan is taking his fans and followers on a trip down memory lane with anecdotes from the films he worked on. Today, the actor looked back at his experience working on Kidnap with Sanjay Dutt and Minissha Lamba. He revealed producers weren't enthusiastic about signing him as his debut film Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na was yet to release.

Sharing BTS pictures from the sets of Kidnap, Imran wrote on Instagram, "I was close to wrapping the shoot of Jaane Tu... when I was called in to audition for Kidnap. Director Sanjay Gadhvi was hot off the first two Dhoom movies, and I had a shot at playing antagonist to @duttsanjay so it was a huge opportunity! A number of young actors were up for the parts of Kabir and Sonia; I did screen tests with a couple of actresses before @minissha_lamba was locked, and she was tested opposite a few other actors."

He added, "Bear in mind that since Jaane Tu had not yet released, I was not considered to have any star value, so the producers were not very enthusiastic about casting me... I got the part thanks to dual support from the director, and writer Shibani Bathija, for which I am grateful to this day."
