Working with Pankaj Kapoor was scary: Imran Khan

Added by harini on Jan 07, 2013

Actor Imran Khan, who is sharing screen space with veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor for the first time in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’, said that working with someone like Pankaj Kapoor can be very scary.

“Pankajji is a fantastic actor, but working with him is very scary,” said Imran Khan to IANS while promoting the movie.

“As soon as the director says 'action', he explodes as a bomb and the actor who is standing in front of him has to be ready to take whatever he is going to do, because if you are not ready, then the whole scene may get spoilt. So, you have to be alert and have to be on your toes. It is scary," he added.

In the movie Imran Khan plays a village boy for the very first, which is very different from romantic chocolate boy image people associate him with, thanks to his movies ‘Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na’, ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ and ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’.

But Imran Khan said that he isn’t a romantic in real life.

“I am not romantic at all. I can't do this - buying gifts, giving roses and all that. I feel that if you are serious about a relationship, it is more than just that and all these things (gifting) is just for showing off,” he concluded.

‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ is a drama comedy set in a rustic village of Haryana. The movie is about Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), a wealthy industrialist who loves his drink, his daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and the unusual bond they both share with Harry’s man Friday, Matru (Imran Khan).

The movie also stars Arya Babbar, who plays Anushka Sharma’s finance Baadal, the son of a powerful politician Chaudhari Devi played by Shabana Azmi.

The movie is set to release on January 11, 2013.
