These days it's become mandatory for filmmakers to play a video depicting the hazards of smoking prior to the start of the film. In the upcoming film Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola featuring Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapur, producer-director Vishal Bhardwaj has come up with a unique idea
to make this public awareness video a bit more creative and interesting without diluting the impact.
Anushka Sharma and Imran Khan will be seen romancing onscreen for the first time in Vishal Bhardwaj's next Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola. The film is a comedy drama film written and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
It is learnt that Vishal, who was recently on a singing talent hunt show, was so moved by the performances of six of the contestants that he decided to make a song with them that would be used in the background while the statutory warning message against smoking is being displayed. This would help convey the relevant message in a far more entertaining way.
Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola releases on Jan 11, 2013.
