Anushka Sharma has been signed opposite Imran Khan in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Matru Ki Biwi Ka Mann Dola, a joint production by Bharadwaj, Ajay Devgn and Kumar Mangat. Ajay was initially supposed to play the male lead but had to drop out of the project to work on his home production ‘Son of Sardar’.
It will be shot in the rustic locales of Rohtak, Haryana. The movie is speculated to be a laugh riot.
This movie is a biggie in the kitty of both Imran and Anushka who are currently riding on the success of their previous hits. Anushka is thrilled as she will be portraying a dramatically different role of a psycho chick in this urban comedy.
She admitted that after Band Baaja Baraat she made a wish-list of 10 directors she wanted to work with and she considers herself lucky and grateful to Vishal for believing in her.
The casting and the subject of the movie offers novelty and it will be really interesting to see both Imran and Anushka coming together in this comic riot. Both Imran and Anushka have proved their comic timing mettle in their earlier films Delhi Belly and Band Baaja Baraat respectively.
Vishal Bharadwaj has a reputation for bringing out the best from his cast be it Saif’s impeccable Langda Tyagi act (Omkara) or Shahid’s incredibly contrasting double role (Kaminey) or Priyanka as haunting Susannna (7 Khoon Maaf).
The movie is currently in its pre-production and slated to release in 2012.
