Pankaj, Shabana team up after 20 years

The casting of Vishal Bhardwaj's ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ (MKBKM) just got more interesting. The film already boasted of an interesting cast comprising Pankaj Kapoor, Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma and now Shabana Azmi is on board.

"I am the hugest fan of Vishal's work as a music composer and as a filmmaker, and so is my husband. Yes, I am cast opposite Pankaj who is an exceptionally talented actor," said Shabana. She is paired with Kapoor and this is Shabana's first film with the talented Pankaj since the highly-acclaimed ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut’.

"Technically, we've done two films together in the past. But I didn't have any scenes with him in 'Mandi'. We were together as a couple in 'Ek Doctor Ki Maut'. It's always a pleasure to work with a challenging actor," said the veteran actress.

There have been many attempts to bring these two super-talented actors together but all were foiled by scripts that either one or both didn't like. Apparently when Bhardwaj, who has earlier worked with Shabana in his first directorial venture ‘Makdee’, offered her the part in MKBKM, she begged off wondering what would there be in it for her. Earlier this week, Shabana went through a looks test for her part in the film. She will be sporting a very unusual look in this comedy where nothing is as it seems, including the actress.
