Pankaj Kapur And Shabana Azmi To Play Sexually Active People In Vishal Bhardwaj's NextMovie Talkies – Wed 21 Nov, 2012 12:00 AM IST
Pankaj Kapur and Shabana Azmi will play sexually active 55-plus people in the upcoming Vishal Bhardwaj film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.
Sources reveal that both Pankaj and Shabana have never played such characters before and that the former, who plays Anushka Sharma's father, behaves as if he is younger than her boyfriend Imran Khan. Sources further add that Pankaj's character flirts with Shabana and
she just doesn't seem to mind. Furthermore, it's not so much about the intimacy but the age factor which made the characters a little difficult. However, according to sources, both of them sailed through their parts.
Reports have suggested that Pankaj's character in the film is inspired by business tycoon Vijay Mallya. Apparently, he has the same larger-than-life flamboyance and get up, including the beard, in the film.
