Our sources also say that so tensed was Imran at the prospect of playing a Haryanvi lad that the day after he signed Bhardwaj’s film, he paid a visit to the director to opt out of the project.
Our source says, “Being a Mumbai boy, Imran obviously had no clue how to speak like someone from Haryana. He had initially said yes for the film. However, after the first day of reading the script, he realised it was not going to be his cup of tea.” Imran tells us, “It’s true that I first thought I had made a mistake by agreeing to do the film. I went to Vishal sir to ask him to cast someone else. But thankfully, he didn’t budge and I finally became a part of the film.”
