It is a known fact that Imran Khan has always been inspired by his uncle Aamir Khan and it appears even co incidences are taking them through similar paths.
Like Aamir Khan, Imran too is making every effort to promote his upcoming film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. He has been pasting posters of his new film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola on taxis and autorickshaws.
Imran recalls that Aamir did the same for his debut film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. “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,” says Imran.
“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 in UK cinemas on 11 January 2013.
