Imran Khan’s dhoti dilemma
Imran Khan may be more synonymous for his urbane coolness so getting into rustic mode on screen certainly is a challenge for the actor. And that apparently put Imran in a bit of a spot while shooting his next film.
In his last outing Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola, he had a brush with going desi. In his upcoming film directed by Punit Malhotra, Imran essays a South Indian character. The rom-com has Kareena Kapoor as Imran’s co-star and also stars Shraddha Kapoor.
The actor had to apparently shoot in a dhoti for an engagement sequence during the film’s Bangalore schedule. Having not donned the traditional garb earlier, the actor took a while to get it right with unit folks to his rescue.
Says a source, `Imran certainly had a tough time wearing a dhoti. The actors from the South in the film extended a helping hand to him to get it right. The fact that he had to wear it became a talking point on the sets.`
