Romantic comedy “I Hate Luv Storys” has collected approximately Rs.21.5 crore in the domestic circuit in the first three days of its release and hero Imran Khan says he is surprised by the “grand opening” it has got.
“I feel honestly very surprised with the numbers. I had told (director) Punit Malhotra that it’s a very good film and I was quite confident with the way it was promoted, but I didn’t expect such a opening,” Imran saidover the telephone.
“I Hate Luv Storys” is a rom-com where Imran plays a bit of a womaniser and also stars Sonam Kapoor.
Asked if he thought it was wise to release the film after “Kites” and “Raavan”, he said: “I think everything went in our favour. There are the things you can’t plan for and everything happened by good fortune.”
Imran has signed a film with producer-director Karan Johar and it was rumoured that he would be romancing Kareena Kapoor in the movie.
“See, I have signed another film with Karan, but until he announces it I can’t talk anything about it,” Imran said.
Imran is also wrapping up director Kunal Kohli’s “Break Ke Baad”, in which he will be seen opposite Deepika Padukone.
“It’s a romantic and coming of age film. It’s of a multiple genre,” the young actor said, unwilling to disclose anything more about the film.
Speculation was also rife that Imran may tie the knot with his girlfriend Avantika Malik in January 2011, but he denied it, saying that he would be shooting during that period.
“Actually in January, I will be shooting for Karan’s film,” he said.
