Stars Getting Real

Actor Imran Khan who is working for Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ will be travelling through Haryana villages to get the perfect rustic character he will be playing,

Also Vivek Oberoi lived in slum and hired turor to understand the character he was playing in his debut film ‘Company’ released in 2002,

Imran also joined Akhada along with a complete makeover to fit his rugged look, Director Bharadwaj wants to change Imran’s mental status more than physical appearance,

One of the unit member explained how Imran should be looking, he said,

Jats are known to be extremely rustic, earthy with strong physique. Besides, they speak in a strong dialect and have a rugged body language. So, Vishal is keen that Imran travel through Haryana and get the real fee.

Talking about the travelling Haryana, Imran said,

Yes, I will travel to Haryana by road tomorrow. I don’t have a destination in mind. I plan to drift around the state nonchalantly. I am very excited about eating at roadside dhabas and meeting locals casually.

The unit member said,

He will do it for a week first, and then if he feels the need, he will discuss it with Vishal and pick a village to stydy in more detail.

Anushka Sharma is playing the lead lady opposite Imran Khan, earlier Ajay Devgan was doing the film, but when he backed off, the script was bit twisted that suits Imran and he was finalised, Anushka and Imran will be working together for the first time on screen.
