To prepare for his upcoming role, Khan has sent his designers on a hunt around the city to research on how they really dress

After portraying a Delhi lad in Delhi Belly, Imran Khan is now all set to play a Mumbai ka tapori in his upcoming film, directed by Milan Luthria.

Though the actor is currently travelling abroad, he doesn’t want the distance to come in the way of his preparations for the role. Following the footsteps of his maamujaan Aamir who played a similar role in Rangeela, Imran Khan has been sending his stylists to the innermost corners of Mumbai.

As a result, they have been making the rounds of the underbellies of the city including areas such as Bhendi Bazaar, Mohammad Ali Road, Nagpada, Sakinaka, Dongri, Dharavi, etc to research on how the inhabitant taporis really dress nowadays.

Our sources say that the actor wants to make sure his dressing is authentic and not make-believe, hence all the efforts. “Imran Khan has taken upon himself to seek perfection and not go with the clichés when it comes to his onscreen persona. Therefore he has sent his designers in the areas where he can find the authentic tapori look,” the source also adds.
