The story revolves around Jay and Simran, who are complete opposites
when it comes to romance. While Jay doesn't believe in love,
Simran swears by it and is quite filmy when it comes to love.
In the film, both of them work for a well-known director who
specialises in grand romantic potboilers.
Imran says it was a conscious decision to do ths light-hearted
film. "When I came out of shooting 'Luck', I was really
sick of action, thrill and darkness and I wanted to do something
that was really light and fun. I was actually looking for a
script like that and this one was apt as the entire tone was
very irreverent. So on any given day and moment of time, we
were doing things that were really cheeky and really fun."
The actor was also tipped as the next gay icon when pictures
from the movie's photo shoot appeared for the first time."
"I am not really sure where that came from and how it
came but who cares? If people like me, better... if people like
the film, all the better."
"I Hate..." takes pot shots at Karan Johar's own
Imran said: "The kind of movies the director (in the movie)
makes is inspired from Karan - how Karan makes grand movies
on a grand scale, but the character is not actually based on
any one director.
"We have taken a public image of how people perceive directors
and we make fun of that. The idea is not to make a caricature
or spoof or anything. That is not the intent. Our intent was
always to make a fun, romantic comedy."
Imran's other future projects include his uncle Aamir Khan's
home production "Delhi Belly".
