Anushka Sharma chats about Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

The beautiful actress Anushka Sharma stars in Vishal Bhardwaj‘s latest flick “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.” Sharma plays the role of the daughter of a wealthy industrialist played by Pankaj Kapur in the film. Check out more about Anushka Sharma‘s role in this interview!

 

 

Q: Tell us about your character in the film

Anushka Sharma: I play a strong headed, outspoken girl in the film. My character Bijlee is a rich, spoilt brat and is allowed to run wild in her village, which is practically owned by her millionaire father – Harry Mandola played by Pankaj Kapur. She is educated in the world’s best college and has traveled the world.

 

Q: How do you think the film has turned out?

Anushka Sharma: I think our film is very entertaining as it is like a dark comedy. I think it is Vishal sir’s most commercial project if I can say so. And also, the movie’s cast is exciting – there is Imran Khan, Pankaj Kapur, Shabana Azmi. He is one director who is known to bring out the best from actors.

Q: How was it working with Vishal Bhardwaj?

Anushka Sharma: Vishal brings out the best in his actors. I really enjoyed working with him (Vishal). He is known for giving his heroines fully rounded characters with enough grey shades to make them real and interesting. But I can easily say the character of Bijlee is easily amongst his most complex heroines.

 

Q: Tell us about the title track of MKBKM

Anushka Sharma: The song has been choreographed by Dinesh, who is from the South and is a National Award winner…I was just so excited to work with him.”

 

Q: How is it working with Imran Khan?

Anushka Sharma: This is the first time that Imran and I are working together in a film. This is a fresh pairing. I never thought we would have such a different look in the film. I think Imran looks hot in this film!

Q: How did you play the role correctly?

Anushka Sharma: We used to conduct readings with Sir’s (Vishal Bharadwaj) assistance. He has a way of getting the actors under the skin of their character so the scenes turn out convincing.
