Actor Imran Khan, who recently stirred a social media storm with his hints about a Bollywood comeback, shared a series of stills and behind-the-scenes pictures from the movie Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara and shared some intriguing insights into the making of the movie. He took to social media to share throwback pictures from the film's set along with Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar.
Imran Khan shares throwback pictures with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha from Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara; says, “I had always seen it as a tragic romance”
Sharing throwback pictures, Imran captioned, “Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara (that's the official spelling, zoom in on the poster if you don't believe me) was a tricky film. It was perceived and marketed as a gangster movie, but I had always seen it as a tragic romance; while the characters are gangsters, the plot is entirely driven by the love story, not the cops vs robbers stuff.”
He further added, “I was excited about the retro vibe of the film, and I took a lot of styling cues from Anil Kapoor (Mashaal) and Jackie Shroff (Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri) in their 80's glory. I grew out my sideburns and mustache in an attempt to be authentic... but it was not to be.”
Imran said, “While I was initially scheduled to wrap shooting on this film in January 2013, and begin the shoot for Gori Tere Pyaar Mein the next month, the schedules stretched till August of that year, and we were still on set filming scenes two weeks before release! This meant that after filming about 30% of my scenes, I had to shave and get a haircut so I could start GTPM, and complete the rest of OUATIM with hair extensions, fake sideburns and a glued-on mustache. It's easy to catch, now that you're looking for it!”
“The film was not very well received upon release, and I shouldered most of the responsibility... but that never tarnished the affection I felt for my team mates. @akshaykumar was the very definition of Movie Star cool, and is probably the strongest human being I've met in real life... this dude's forearms are as thick as my calves, seriously. And I loved @aslisona from the first day. Fearless and unrestrained as an actor, and utterly devoid of any self-importance,” Imran concluded.
