Imran to copy SRK, Aamir and Salman


By Hindustan Times

New Delhi, July 31 -- Imran Khan will match steps of three illustrious Khans - Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman - in his next release, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. The title track of the film, Mere brother ki dulhan... Matrimonial ki aankhen..., will see the actor imitating the signature moves of the trio. The song was composed by Sohail Sen and shot over three days.

It will begin with Aamir's famous Aati kya khandala... from Ghulam (1998), with a bit of Rang De Basanti (RDB, 2006) thrown in. "I saw Ghulam when I was 14. I remember the song more than the movie," says Imran. Next, Salman is idolised in his classic 'belt hook' avatar from Dabangg (2010). "It was a simple step and the connect with Salman is obvious, as is the towel pulling move from Mujhse Shaadi Karoge (2004) - which is full-on filmi. It transports you back to one of our best remembered cinematic moments," says Imran, who next clambers on a train to dance atop it a la Dil Se (1998), SRK 'ishtyle'. Imran admits it wasn't a smooth ride. "With every jerk, there was the danger of falling off. But Chaiyya chaiyya... is an iconic song - be it its composition, choreography, the way it's been sung and performed," he says.

There's also a flashback to Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ, 1995) with a 'bridal' Taciane Matos pulling him into a speeding train, in a role reversal. "We shot it at the same station where DDLJ's climax was shot," he says. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, a Yash Raj production, releases on September 9, marks the directorial debut of Ali Abbas Zafar.
