Imran Khan replaced Ajay Devgn in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

Imran Khan revealed he replaced Ajay Devgn in the film. He said, “I was never supposed to be Matru. The film was launched with Ajay Devgn attached as Matru, but he chose to withdraw before filming could commence. I was riding high off the back-to-back successes of Delhi Belly and MBKD, and close to wrapping the shoot of EMAET when I got the call; Vishal Bhardwaj wanted to meet me! I was thrilled. He told me about his passion project, a story he had been carrying close to his heart.”

Speaking of his hesitation and anxiousness, he said, “To accomplish this, I moved to Delhi and started intensive workshops with the legendary NK Sharma and some of his students. Panditji, as we affectionately called him, was the first person to point out the negative Voice in my head. “You only listen to the voice that tells you you are worthless”, he told me, “why do you disrespect the thousands of voices that say they love you?”. I listened to his words, but I didn’t really hear them.”
