Actor Imran Khan, who will be seen in his next film ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ with Pankaj kapoor, says it was very challenging for him to work with the veteran actor.
Pankaj Kapoor as an actor is a very challenging co-star to act opposite, because he improvises a lot and he pulls out new things as they happen. You have to be in the moment with him, you have to be ready with whatever he will do, and you have to be ready to pick that up and take it forward.
Imran also says that he was surprised to see the working style of the film’s director Vishal Bhardwaj.
I was very surprised by his style of directing. He gives a lot more freedom to the actors than I expected. If during the take, you decide to do something different, he will let you do that. He liberates the actor and puts a lot of power in actor’s hands.
The film will release in January 2013.
