Imran Khan is reportedly suffering from Ear pain
Imran Khan has been roped in for Vishal Bhardwaj's Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola. Vishal was impressed with Imran after watching his films like Delhi Belly and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and thought he could suit the part. Anushka Sharma is playing female lead in this movie. This would be the first time that Imran and Anushka would be paired together in a film.
Imran Khan, 29, will be seen as a rugged Haryanvi in Vishal Bhardwaj's comedy Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Not only was he asked by the director to beef up his scrawny physique to play the character and to grow a beard, he also had to get his ears pierced since his character wears ear-rings throughout the film.
Imran pierced his ears and while shooting, he experienced severe pain in the ear lobes. A doctor had to be called on the sets to examine Imran's ears. And it was discovered that both his ears were festering with raw wounds.
"Vishal Bhardwaj panicked and decided to knock off the ear-rings from Imran's character. Sensitivity to ear-piercing is quite common when done at a later stage in life. Imran's ears got really bad and Vishal Bhardwaj told him to take off the earrings and to take a few days off until his ears healed," said a source.
Talking about the pain he is going through after getting his ears pierced, Imran said, “To get into the character for my film Matru Ki Bijle ka Mandola, I had to pierce my ears and wear gold studs. But right after few days, I went through tremendous pain as there was some infection that was caused. Unfortunately, I couldn’t wear those studs and I had to wear clip-ons.
Imran, who is just four years old in the film industry, refused to take the earrings off, but agreed to wear clips on earrings.
