Imran Khan to follow Rishi Kapoor
Imran to shed his inhibitions in a song made famous by Rishi Kapoor
Imran Khan is currently open to experimenting. First, he shed his chocolate-boy looks and turned hardcore Hariyanvi for Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Now, he will shed his inhibitions and let loose his jungli side for a special song in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2. Wait there's more. The song is on the lines of a qawwali, inspired by Imran's bete noire Ranbir Kapoor's dad Rishi Kapoor.
The untitled number is yet to be shot because the team is looking at a 'mohalla' setting. And, in search for an authentic setting, director Milan Luthria has rejected over 17 locations in Mumbai and Pune.
Talking about the song, director Milan says, "The item song will be along the lines of what Rishi Kapoor did in Amar Akbar Anthony (1977). I think it'll suit Imran well." Milan adds that he is even more confident about this song because his choreographer Raju Khan is an expert when it comes to numbers that have a slightly retro feel, like the ones Raju did in The Dirty Picture.
