Veteran actor Pankaj Kapur says he had fun doing all the action sequences in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and it also made him feel younger than his age. "As an actor you are supposed to do some kind of action in case it is required. I remember this sequence where I was pulled up by a wire 100 ft above the ground. This was my first time that I was hung with a wire and I was a bit scared. But I must say it was a very beautiful experience looking down at everybody from a height," the 58-year-old said here at a promotional press conference of the film, which is releasing today.

"Then next day Vishal told me with a simple face that you have to go inside the water in very cold conditions. But I had a blast doing it. I felt very good and I felt younger than I am," he added.

Pankaj has teamed up with Imran Khan, Anushka Sharmam and Shabana Azmi in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Not just action, he also got to shake a leg in the film, something he confesses he has never done before.

"It has been years since I actually danced and when he asked me to dance in the film, I was a bit concerned because I had not done it. But with rehearsals and persuasion from him and my co-actors, especially the assistants, worked very hard to make us look the way we look while we are dancing," Pankaj said.
