Early life and background
Imran Khan was born Imran Pal on 13 January 1983 in Madison, Wisconsin, United States to Anil Pal (a software engineer) and Nuzhat Khan (a psychologist). Khan is of Hindu Bengali descent on his father's side, and on his mother's side he is a Muslim.
Khan and his mother moved to Mumbai, India after his parents divorced. He appeared in the films Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992) as a child artist, both times playing the role of a young Aamir Khan.He studied at Bombay Scottish School, where he developed a stammer due to corporal punishments such as caning. According to Khan, his grades fell and his academic career went into a "strong decline" due to his inability to cope with his environment; he became nervous and developed facial tics. As a result, his parents transferred him to Blue Mountain School (a boarding school) in Coonoor. Khan described his experience there as "phenomenal"; when the principal left to start his own school, he and several other students followed him to a Gurukul in the jungles of Ooty, with no electricity where the students washed their clothes in a creek and grew some of the food they ate. Khan later admitted that frequently changing schools made him independent but also a loner.
Khan then moved to Sunnyvale, California, where he lived with his father and attended Fremont High School. Upon graduation he aspired to become a film director, and went to Los Angeles to pursue a degree in filmmaking at the Los Angeles branch of the New York Film Academy. Studying direction, writing and cinematography, Khan was inspired by writer Roald Dahl. After receiving his degree, he ventured into market research and advertising. He eventually returned to Mumbai and trained to become an actor at Kishore Namit Kapoor's acting institute.
