After Ajay Devgn opted out of Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming comedy Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (MKBKM), Imran Khan has been drafted to play the lead role. He will be paired with Anushka Sharma for the first time.
Vishal Bhardwaj says that Imran has a good comic timing as is evident from the films Delhi Belly and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, and he will perfectly suit the script. The regular shooting of the film will start as scheduled from November second week.
The film is being jointly produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Fox Star Studios. It is being planned for a August 2012 release.
