"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.
