Imran Khan is mentally challenged: Rahul Rawail
Imran Khan probably didn't realise that he had put his foot in his mouth when he dismissed filmmaker Rahul Rawail with a cocky comment, in an interview.
Not one to take it lying down, Rahul, who is known as much for his body of work — Love Story, Betaab, Arjun and Dacait — as he is for his candour, posted on social media platforms.

Taking this fight further, Rahul's nephew, actor-producer Rajat Rawail too hit back. On his social media page, Rajat posted, "Imran Khan needs a reality check. It was Mr Aamir Khan who went from pillar to post promoting Jaane Tu... and his goodwill and credibility got the audience into the theatres. Imran Khan's claim to fame is Once Upon A Time 2... [he ruined the brand franchise built by the stellar performance of Ajay (Devgn) sir] and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, which happens to be a landmark disaster in all senses. Both these above-mentioned films are approximate loss estimated of Rs 50cr+ to the producers/financiers/distributors. Shah Rukh Khan says in Chak De India, 'Pehle Apni Game Baaki Logon Se Unchi Karo, Phir Apni Aawaz Unchi Karna'.
It's extremely sad to hear Imran Khan make a statement like this about Mr Rahul Rawail. If his grand uncle (he meant grandfather?) was alive today [the legendry filmmaker Mr Nasir Hussain, who was a dear friend of Mr Rahul Rawail's father Shri HS Rawail [Mere Mehboob and Laila Majnu] he would have put this obstinate, self conceited, disaster of a non-actor in his place... Imran Khan needs to know his position in the trade today — he has only made it to the party list, thats it!!!! Today, a film with me as a leading man will take a bigger draw than him... now it's time for him to piggyback on Kangana Ranaut. Imran Khan aaj producer ke liye free main mahenga hain!!! (sic)"
