Vishal gave me space to interpret 'Matru' my way: Imran Khan
"Pankajji is the sweetest, kindest person you would ever meet but as an actor he is completely different. When the cameras roll, he turns into a powerhouse, a volcano and then you have to face that. You have to ensure that your part is not falling apart in front of him," says Imran while sharing his experiences of working with the veteran actor. Imran says Kapur never advised him or gave any tips on acting but his presence was inspiring.
"The actors who are very talented, they understand that the process is different for each actor. He did not give me tips or advice but the kind of focus and dedication that he brought on the sets everyday was inspiring," says Imran.
Though the village setting was entirely new for Imran, he says working on the film was fun because his sensibilities matched with Bhardwaj.
"The funny thing is that Vishal called me for this film only after watching 'Delhi Belly'. These two films are world apart. His style of humour is very much in tune with my sensibilities. That being said, the character itself was hard for me to play," says Imran.
The actor is currently busy shooting 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2'. He begins working on Tigmanshu Dhulia's 'Milan Talkies' by the end of the year.
Imran, who made his debut with 'Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na' in 2008, says he is happy with the way his career has shaped up.
"I think I have a record that any actor would relish as the last five or six films of mine have been hits. I am very happy with the way things have shaped up but that does not mean I can sit back and relax. The pressure is on me to do more," he says.
