Mumbai: Actor Imran Khan believes his forthcoming film 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' deals with a somewhat taboo subject and this may give rise to some controversy before its release. "It's a very taboo subject. Not controversial but people can find a way to make it controversial," the 29-year-old said here Tuesday at a radio station.
"I'll tell you what will happen, one week before the release someone will find a way to make it controversial, someone or the other will get offended, just see," he added.
His co-star Anushka Sharma chipped in, "It is what it is."
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' deals with taboo subject and this may give rise to some controversy before its release.
The film is set in a village where Anushka plays Pankaj Kapoor's daughter, while Imran works with Pankaj. However, problems arise when Anushka gets involved with another man, Arya Babbar, a powerful politician Shabana Azmi's son.
Anushka, who plays Bijlee, said the role was quite tough for her.
"For me the role was difficult to play because of the way I am, I say whatever I think. But Bijlee is somebody who holds her emotions and her thoughts to herself," the 24-year-old said here.
"She portrays an image that is not maybe who she is. So I think that was a little difficult," she added.
Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, the film releases Jan 11.
