Hopefully the film is going to feature a new side of the rural and semi-urban lifestyle.
Shabana Azmi will also be seen as an important character in 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola'.
Director Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' is all set to present Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma in completely new avatars. The film is hitting the screens on January 11, 2013.
Vishal Bhardwaj's last film as director was 'Saat Khoon Maaf' which had Priyanka Chopra in the lead.
The film seems to be set in a semi-urban backdrop like 'Omkara'.
Anushka is playing the character of Bijlee in the film. Her character goes to Oxford University in the film.
Imran Khan is donning the role of Matru who opts to study LLB in Delhi University.
Bhardwaj made an impression with his first directorial venture 'Makdee' in 2002.
'Maqbool' (2003) fetched him commercial success as well. The film was praised for its strong content.
Vishal Bhardwaj looks up to classical literature for inspiration. Shakespeare is his favourite.
Pankaj Kapur has always been given good roles by Vishal. He is likely to get good screen space in 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' as well.
The initial promos of the film created a lot of enthusiasm, mainly due to the mysterious creature called 'Gulabi Bhains' (Pink Buffalo).
This is the first time when Imran Khan is playing such a rustic role. He must be hoping a lot from the film.
