Born into a strict Muslim family, Imran always felt the pressures and expectations put to him by his parents to secure a high paying job and to marry and settle down with children. However, Imran never believed that his parents were proud of him and always felt second best to his sister, Rana. He went to college and studied for a law degree and, by 2017, had met and married a woman called Sabeen - although the marriage was mostly to keep his parents happy.
In November 2017, Imran attended Rana's wedding to Zeedan Nazir. His presence at the event delighted Rana's friend, and sister-in-law, Alya Nazir - who he likened to a second sister due to their closeness growing up. While waiting for Rana to arrive, Imran irritated Alya's boyfriend Luke Britton as it was made obvious that Imran was much closer to both Alya and Zeedan than he was.
At the wedding's after-party, Imran revealed to Rosie Webster that he was a solicitor, who specialised in criminal law. Rosie told Imran that she worked for Adam Barlow, who was also a solicitor. When Imran said that Adam wouldn't be as good as he was, Rosie's sister Sophie joked that the two should meet as they would probably get along with each other.
In December, the month after, Imran turned up on the street again after his marriage finally ended and his wife had kicked him out. Alya's grandmother, Yasmeen, allowed him to stay at 6 Coronation Street - with there being plenty of room after Cathy Matthews and her nephew Alex moved out.
In January 2018, he defended Luke Britton in court. Later that month his sister, Rana, came out to him and told him that she had been having an affair with Kate Connor. This led to his parents finding out and guilting Rana into a contract to stay with her husband.
In April 2018, his parents tried to kidnap Rana and send her to Pakistan but with the help of Kate, Yasmeen Nazir and Zeedan they got to her in time. He decided to invest in Speed Daal after his parents backed out of giving Zeedan the money from the contract.
In August 2018, he was invited to his father, Hassan's birthday party and with encouragement from Rana decided to go. At this party Hassan suffered a stroke which later led to his death. At this time he had taken on a case of defending Duncan Radfield, a man who had conned Sally Webster.
The night his father died he had a few drinks with Leanne Battersby and they slept togeteher. The next day he told her that it was a mistake and exactly what he needed at the time. They are now both pursuing a relationship.
