Imran Khan | Net Worth & Income

The former Prime Minister, Imran Khan, made his fortune via his cricket career and brand endorsements during his youth. However, his wealth as a politician is only in the peripheral view.

His highest prize money as a cricketer back then was £90,000 ($108,383) in the victorious World Cup 1992.

After his retirement as a cricketer, Imran reinforced himself with philanthropy and politics as a post-career.

Getting elected as the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018 was the highest-marked stepping stone of his life.

Supposedly, the former Prime Minister’s earnings for the first two months were Rs. 85 million ($375,013).

Controversially his properties and assets are even more declared via his tax return, i.e., Rs. 141 million, and the total value of Tosha Khan’s extravagant gifts given to him as a Prime Minister is even more at Rs. 142 million.

The extravagant gifts included an Rs. 85 million Rolex watch and many more luxurious items.

In 2019, he gathered three installments of Rs. 23 million ($101,469) (2017), Rs. 27 ($119,162) million (2018), and Rs. 20 million ($88,238) (2019).

This amounted to Rs. 29 million ($127,945) after selling his property in Ferozewala, Pakistan.

In the same year, he sold his Jewel watch set (a set containing a Graff gents watch, a ring, pair of cufflinks, and a pen) to Umar Farooq Zahoor for 7.5-million-dirham approx ($2,041,927).

Additionally, he deposited 20.1 million PKR ($88,675) in the government treasury (20 percent of the 100 million rupees assessed value by Toshakhana) in 2019.

The watch set was gifted to Imran by Saudi Prince MBS with over 2,000 diamonds and was valued at around 100 million PKR; however, it is now at 1.7 billion PKR by TimeZone Watch Ltd.

The politician of Pakistan lives in his lavish residence, ‘Bani Gala,’ in the north of Islamabad on the eastern bank of Rawal Lake.

But after he was appointed PM, Imran surprised everyone by announcing he won’t stay at this luxurious house. He instead chose to live in a modest minister’s enclave.

Reportedly, this move of his saved billions of rupees from Pakistan’s national fund.

However, his mansion has been controversial for being built without permission from authorities. PM Imran paid a fine of 1.206 million PKR (approx. $5,409) to the Capital Development Authority to approve the map of his sweet home.

This residence spreads over 37 acres and consists of his office, reception area, six bedrooms, a drawing room, a dining hall, and a playroom.

Besides his major residence, he has ten more properties around Pakistan. He has inherited a modest house in Lahore valued at PKR 40.53 million ($176,537).

Besides him, his wife also owns some properties around Pakistan. 

In 2022, Imran Khan declared all of his assets, including his wife’s, to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

Additionally, with no jewelry possession, he inherited two houses and 228 kanals of land in the Bhakkar district.

Likewise, he gets Pakistani Rs. 1.4 million ($6,174) as rent from his flat and a commercial plot on Constitution Avenue in Islamabad.

As a part of his possession, he showed Pakistani Rs. 11.22 million ($49,643) cash in hand and four goats worth Rs. 0.2 million ($882).

Imran Khan mentioned Pakistani Rs. 48.66 million ($214,683) expenditure on the construction of the Zaman Park house and an additional Pakistani Rs. 4.9 million ($21,830) on Banigala.

Cars

It is generally expected from a man of his stature to have several luxurious cars. But when his assets were valued in 2018, it was found that he did not have a single car.

Though Khan has won or been gifted a few cars.

Similarly, being a politician and former Prime Minister makes him subject to government cars.

But other than that, ethically, he doesn’t have a fleet of cars in his house. 

He won a Rover 827 Vitesse worth $72,000 in 1989 and the title Cricketer of the Year.

He is often seen behind the wheels of a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which is believed to be either a gift or a property of his party PTI. 

As a politician and former Prime Minister, Khan has always prioritized ending corruption and cutting the government’s expenses.

He has never favored extravagant services on the money of taxpayers.

As a matter of fact, in September 2018, he auctioned more than 100 luxury cars that belonged to the government. Along with that, he also auctioned a few helicopters.

The vehicle lineup consisted of Mercedez Benz, SUVs, bulletproof BMWs, and 40 Toyota cars. They were sold off to the highest bidders. 

Imran Khan | Lifestyle

He was considered a socialite of London society and was always on the radar of the media and paparazzi.

Khan talked about his bachelor life and said ‘he never claimed to be an angel.’ But he has successfully diverted himself towards philanthropy and community service.

Imran Khan | Vacations & Trips

Imran has traveled exclusively to international and internal competitions as a national team captain. 

Since 2018, he has visited 13 countries as Prime Minister of Pakistan, including the USA, Sri Lanka, China, UAE, etc.; by 2022, it was 34 foreign trips to 16 countries.

When his dear mother succumbed to cancer in 1985, he founded Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust in her memory.
