MUMBAI: Festival time is so special, that even our Bollywood stars can’t resist celebrating in full gusto. Case in point was ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ stars Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma’s Makar Sankranti celebrations in Mumbai.
Imran and Anushka spread the joy, in an early rendition of the popular kite-flying festival of Makar Sankranti. The young stars had a gala time at High Street Phoenix in Mumbai, flying colourful kites and interacting with their enthusiastic, young fans.
Imran chose a simple combo for his kite-flying appearance: a white tee and blue jeans. Anushka was clad in white skinnies and a green printed sleeveless top, once again sparking off rumours off anorexia as she looked waif thin. The duo were quite childlike as they got to fly kites at the event: Imran a bright blue boyish kite and Anushka a fluorescent yellow one.
‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ is directed by critically acclaimed director Vishal Bhardwaj of ‘Kaminey’ and ‘Omkara’ fame, under his banner ‘VB Films’. The film is already receiving fairly positive reviews from film critics. Recently, reports had suggested that Imran has impressed Vishal Bhardwaj so much, that he is keen to have him in the sequel to ‘Kaminey’, thereby replacing Shahid Kapoor.
Imran denies this by saying, “There has been no discussion at all with Vishal sir on ‘Kaminey 2’. Having said that I would love to work with him once again after Matru…” Imran and Shahid have always maintained they are good friends and he does not want to jeopardize his relationship with Shahid based on such rumours. Imran has reportedly done a splendid job in ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ and the industry can’t stop raving that this will be a game-changer for him.
Imran Khan will be seen next in ‘Milan Talkies’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again’.
