“But no, there are no plans of launching him at present. He has come on board the film, just because he wants to understand the process of filmmaking. He is a young kid, still studying and yet to even decide if he wants to be an actor, director or something else,” a source told Pinkvilla, talking about Ibrahim's career plans. Apart from this, the source also revealed that the movie will go on the floors by the month of June/July if it works for Alia and Ranveer. The film will be shot at real locations in India with Alia and Ranveer getting involved in some acting workshops before they kickstart the film.
Earlier, talking about Ibrahim's acting debut, his sister Sara Ali Khan had said, "He has not even gone to college yet. So, I think acting is like a while away. It's definitely something he is interested in and something he is passionate about. He is gonna study film in LA. So, if he wants to do something he will do it." She went on to talk about his obsession with Tik Tok and said, "I think Ibrahim was the first one to get on TikTok and he tells me very often, "Let's make a TikTok" and I am like, "Okay, what do we do? You'll have to tell me what to do?" Coz I am not very good...I see a lot of these TikTok videos and I am not so good at it. So I was like, "Ibrahim, you tell me what to do?" The only thing I can do is "Knock Knock, who's there? and you don't find them very funny." Sara Ali Khan Wishes Ibrahim Ali Khan on His Birthday, Calls Him Iggy Potter.
