Our source says, “Bhardwaj requested his good friend Sharma to coach Imran into the perfect Haryanvi male. He tutored him for days and also made sure that he had the right body language before he went on the sets. Being a perfectionist, Imran didn’t want to leave any stone unturned to get his act right.” Imran incidentally had to reside in Delhi for a month to get his body language and accent right.
