Khan attended film school at our Universal Studios, Hollywood location and ironically studied directing. He even worked briefly as a director in Los Angeles before being cast in his break out role. He recalls that before starring in his first film he thought he was being called in as an assistant director, but “Over the course of the meeting, I realized that he actually wanted me to act in the film.”
His second film, “Kidnap” is set to come out this July. The film is described as an action suspense thriller and is directed by Sanjay Gadhvi. When asked if Khan was looking to direct again anytime soon he said, “I feel like I’m not mature enough to direct a film. I’ve directed several short films, but that takes less from you. I want to wait, get a little more experience, and get to a place where I think I’m ready to do it.”
No matter what direction his career takes him in, the whole NYFA team is proud of Imran’s achievements, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this promising alumnus.
