During the same interview, Imran stated that he is a lot like his mamu, Aamir Khan as they have not accepted a lot of money doing appearances, ramp shows, and other stuff. He added that his family has the same tendency, his another uncle, Mansoor Khan has also been same, as he did four films, left the city and moved to Coonoor. He said:

"That is kind of a family tendency — Aamir or my uncle Mansoor. Mansoor, famously after making four films, left the city, moved to Coonoor. I could say, yeh thodi khandaani bimaari hai (it’s a family ailment). A little bit of disengagement and disenchantment with which a lot of people hold such value, for us, in my family that is what I have seen and that is how I have been raised that don’t put stock in these things. This comes and goes like a tide. You don’t put your stock in that. You put stock in your craft, you put stock in your film. Film is forever."

When Imran Khan moved out of his bungalow to 'fix' himself for his daughter, Imara

In an interview with Vogue India, Imran Khan first time talked about the reason why he left acting. He stated that he had hit a rough patch in 2016, where he felt broken from the inside. The actor stated that, luckily, he was financially stable till 30. Imran also added that he didn't feel excited to work as an actor, and was looking for motivation and found it in his daughter, Imara.

After his daughter's birth, Imran Khan decided to fix himself and be the 'healthiest' and 'strongest' version of himself for her. Imran was quoted as saying:

"I hit a low in 2016 where I felt broken inside. Luckily, I was working in an industry that had rewarded me financially, so by the time I was 30, I didn't have to worry about money. At that point, it wasn't my career because I wasn't excited by it enough to want to work hard for it. I had recently become a father and thought, ‘This is valuable. This is something I take seriously.' I wanted to be the best version of myself for Imara. I decided it was no longer my job to be an actor. Now, I had to fix myself; be at my healthiest and strongest for my daughter."

Well, Imran is definitely the coolest daddy! What do you think?
