Imran Khan is going through a transformation as an actor with his forthcoming film Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola being a demanding project. Apart from physical changes in look et al the actor will also mouth abusive language.
It may not be surprising that Vishal Bhardwaj’s next movie, Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola will be as rustic as his previous ones, and foul and abuive language will be employed aplenty, just like in his earlier works (Omkara and Kaminey, for example).
Imran Khan will do away with his chocolate boy image for something more raw and rustic. He sports a beard and has put on weight to look older for his character in the movie. He is required to speak Haryanvi and has even taken lessons to get the accent right.
We heard that Vishal Bhardwaj’s close friend Gulzar expressed his concern over the language and asked Bhardwaj to tone it down and limit it to fewer scenes. Vishal has begun shooting Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola at Wankaner palace in Rajkot. – TOI
