Imran wrote, “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.”

He also revealed that he was “anxious and terrified” while filming but he is “proud as hell” of the movie. Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola saw Imran star alongside Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapur.
