Imran Khan is extremely disappointed. The vacation that he’d been planning in Germany for the last few months stands cancelled. The actor was planning to visit Hamburg with wife Avantika, and then drive down through various cities and towns across Germany on the Autobahns.
The autobahns are the nationally coordinated highways of Germany. Most of the world’s serious drivers have it on their to-do list. It’s been one of Imran’s dreams to drive down the autobahns, but now that’s on hold.
Imran confirms, “Yes, I just cancelled our holiday in Germany. Avantika and I had planned a road trip in Germany from September 20 to 30 with a couple of our friends there. I had done the all the bookings, but the Gori Tere Pyar Mein (GTPM) shoot got extended, so I had to cancel my holiday.
For those two weeks, we had booked everything from our flights to the hotel in all the cities we would be driving down to. I have a very good friend in Hamburg who had invited us and was going to take us around.”
The speed junkie adds, “The plan was to rent cars, drive down to one town, and rent another one to drive to another town on the various autobahns. They are superbly designed, built and maintained and said to be the ultimate in driving experience.
I was getting more excited as the day was nearing, but then the GTPM people requested me to postpone my trip so I had to cancel all my bookings. But it’s okay. Work comes first. The production house said those were the only dates available and we cannot shoot after that so I don’t mind.”
Imran hasn’t had a holiday for a long time and now he has to plan another one. He says, “I don’t know when we can go again for a holiday. It all depends on how the shoot goes. I am thinking maybe we can plan it in October.”
