It is a perception that Imran does one type of films
A little over a month and ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA will be all over. While the Hero v/s. Villain angle has managed to catch fancy of many after the unveiling of the new trailer, one waits to see how Imran will emerge as the hero in this Milan Luthria venture.
"It is weird when some out there are insinuating that he is going through an image change here," smiles Rajat Aroraa, the film's writer. He adds, "A strong term like 'image change' would be valid for those who have played a similar part in several films, not for someone who has done merely 9 films so far. Was DELHI BELLY the same as JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA? Were MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA and EK MAIN AUR EKK TU similar?"
Rajat, who made sure that Imran's part as the 'hero' stands out despite the heavyweight presence of 'villain' Akshay Kumar, adds, "I totally believe it is only a perception that Imran does only one type of films. That's not true. As a matter of fact in those few films that he has done, Imran has shown a lot of range. Now in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI DOBARA, he has done a fantastic job in a new side to him."
With Sonakshi being paired opposite Imran, Rajat believes that the Milan Luthria and him could play around with her characterisation.
"The best part about Sonakshi is that she looks good with both the actors. With Akshay she has delivered a big hit in the form of ROWDY RATHORE, while with Imran, there is a fresh 'jodi' in the making," he says.
We look forward to the results once this Balaji film hits the silver screens on 15th August.
