Actor Imran Khan, who is working with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj for the first time in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, says that the filmmaker is the finest director he has worked with and praises him for giving everyone a lot of creative freedom.
"Vishal is a very hard working director. As a creative person he is someone who works very, very hard. At the same time, he gives a lot of freedom to other creative people who are working with him," the 29-year-old said on Sunday while unveiling former Miss India and painter Anjanna Kuthiala's paintings celebrating womanhood.
"Be it set designer, cinematographer or actors like me, he always gives you a lot of freedom. It's like, I trust you, do something good.
"So far, I am very happy with the way the film has come out. I had an incredible time working with Vishal. This is the first time I am working with such a seasoned and experienced director and now I understand how he makes such good films," added the 29-year-old who has so far done mainstream masala movies like Break Ke Baad and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.
Imran is working with Anushka Sharma for the first time in the film and said: "She is a very talented actress. She is spontaneous on screen. In the 20-25 days I have worked with her, I found that most of the time her first or second take is the best," said Imran.
The actor has been sporting a beard for his character in the film and has even pierced his ears.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola also stars Pankaj Kapur and Shabana Azmi.
