Imran Khan in a recent interview to a daily insisted that Matru isnalt39t said as Ma- tru but as matar ( peas) with a slight roll in the tongue.

Sporting a beard, long hair and one earing in the ear, he looked more like a doopie than a vil


But this is the look for his next film alt39 Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandolaalt39. Paired opposite livewire actress Anushka Sharma, the film is set in a small fictitious village called Mandola. The Vishal Bhardwaj directed film, in fact is a comedy about a man called Matru ( played by Imran, we suspect) who goes to a village called Mandola in search for his love called Bijli ( officially played by Anushka).

The film has been in the news for the longest time for its casting issue. Ajay Devgn, Shahid Kapoor and many others were initially approached for the film, before the role landed in the lap of Imran alt39 Matrualt39 Khan. The film will also have another star actor essaying the now bad, now good baldie.

The set of matru- bhoomi is being set at Mumbais Kamalistan studios, where a majority of the film is expected to be shot. The film is being jointly produced by Foxstar and Vishal Bhardwaj.
