It’s a well-known fact that Karan Johar’s next production will be directed by Punit Malhotra and have Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead. But now, the filmmaker and director seem to be in a tight spot as they try to conceive a brand new look for Imran.

The actor, best known for his chocolate-boy looks, recently underwent a makeover for two upcoming films — Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Milan Luthria’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again. Now, the makers are planning to give him another completely different look for his film with Kareena.

A source tells us, “Punit and Karan have seen a few glimpses of the two films and have loved Imran’s look. They think he has carried off the rustic look so fabulously that now they are in two minds about how they want him to appear in their own film. They (Karan and Punit) didn’t expect Imran to be able to pull off such an earthy look so well.”

The source adds that Punit has roped in stylists from USA, UK, Australia and India to work on the new look for Imran.

Imran’s spokesperson confirms the news, saying, “He shoots one film a time and the makers are very happy to experiment with his look. Everyone in the team is very excited about this and we’re sure they will come up with something really good.”
