Imran Khan's eyelashes burned off on Luck film set
Imran Khan was "too close" to an explosion on the set of 'Luck', that his eyebrows were burned off.
Imran Khan's eyelashes were burned off doing a stunt on the 'Luck' film set.
The ‘Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na’ star, 40, quit acting years ago, but earlier this month, he got fans excited by cryptically telling fans he was “working on" his comeback.
He's since reflected on his previous job working on the 2009 Indian Hindi-language action-thriller and the on-set accident that saw him lose his eyebrows.
Alongside several behind-the-scenes snaps from the set, he wrote on Instagram: “Speaking of Luck... I found these old pictures, and thought they would be interesting to share. Yes, that's real fire. The umbrella helped with the sun, but not the flames. My eyelashes actually got burned off during a take, when an explosion went off too close in front of me. And yes, that's also really me strapped to the outside of a flying Cessna.”
He announced his comeback by sharing a screenshot on his Instagram of a post he wrote on Threads that said: “To whom it may concern; I hear you. And I’m working on it. Thank you for being so patient with me.”
Fans flooded the comments section of his post with their wishes for sequels, with droves of them saying they wanted him to make ‘Luck 2’.
Another said about their desire for other sequels: “‘Jaane Tu – 2’, ‘I hate luv stories – 2’, ‘Break ke baad – 2’ pleaseeeeeeee.”
Yet another said: “Please give us another romcom.”
America-born Imran made his adult acting debut in 2008 with the coming-of-age romantic comedy ‘Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na’, which was a critical and commercial success.
His performance in the film won him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.
After the failure of his next two films, he was written off by some brutal reviewers who branded him a “one-film wonder”.
He went on to star in a string of commercially successful films including ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, ‘Delhi Belly’, ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ and ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’, which was his last hit.
It was followed by a series of box-office flops.
