London, Nov 29 (ANI): Tom Hanks has revealed that he would have never taken the role of Walt Disney if Disney studios had sugar-coated the legendary filmmaker in the movie 'Saving Mr Banks'.

The 57-year-old actor insisted on playing Walt Disney who smokes, drinks and swears, Sky News reported.

There was initial scepticism that Disney studios might make 'Saving Mr Banks' feel like a propaganda film that immortalised its founder as a hero.

However, concerns have been replaced with a warm welcome from the critics, who are generally impressed at the film's accuracy and the performances of its stars, Hanks and Emma Thompson. (ANI)
