Actor Imran Khan is following in the footsteps of his uncle Aamir Khan and pasting posters of his new film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola on taxis.

Imran recounts the similarity between his way and what Aamir once did.

"Twenty four years ago Aamir uncle pasted the posters of his film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. I remember him telling the story that he and my mother were roaming around the by-lanes of Bandra and seeking the permission of rickshaw drivers to paste the posters of his film and telling them that he is the hero of the film," the 29-year-old said here Monday while promoting the film.

"Flash forward 24 years and I find myself doing the same thing. Actually in our city public transport is the most important thing whether it is rickshaw, taxis or buses, it has always been the lifeline of the city. I think it is the easiest way to communicate and reach out to the people," he added.

Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola also features Anushka Sharma, Pankaj Kapur and Shabana Azmi. It hits theatres January 11.
