Bollywood's Gen X Star Imran Khan who has turned a rustic village lad in his forthcoming film 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' away from his chocolate boy image is pretty excited for the release of the film.
While he has done commercial and urban flicks, this is for the first time that he has done something as raw as this character for which he has also undergone a major make over.
"The film and my role have been very exciting. The transformation from a clean-shaven Bandra boy to a hardcore Rohtak guy was a challenge. I had also enrolled with National School of Drama's Professor NK Sharma, who taught me Haryanvi language, voice modulation, body postures, etc. The transformation was interesting and it kept me hooked," said Imran.
Film's director Vishal Bhardwaj too was all in praise of Imran and his dedication as an actor.
"Imran has the rare ability to surrender to the director's vision. Working with him has been one of my finest moments as a director. No one else could have been my Matru other than him," added Vishal.
The film is slated to release on January 11.
