Arshad Warsi is playing the role of Mahender Fauji in ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ while Imraan Khan is playing the role of Matru in ‘Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola’. Co-incidentally, both the actors are sporting a beard and a striking similar look in both the films which are set for release on the same date. Producer of Zilla Ghaziabad, Vinod Bachchan says, “When I saw the first look of Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola, I was really amazed by Imraan’s look. This is really very surprising that both of them are seen in a same look for the film, we wanted to keep it exclusive for Arshad.”
Zilla Ghaziabad made under the direction of Anand Kumar has been under production for six years. Apart from Arshad Warsi, the film features Vivek Oberoi, Sanjay Dutt, Minissha Lamba and Rajpal Yadav in lead roles. The movie is based on a gang war between two rival groups of Satbir Gurjar (played by Vivek Oberoi) and Mahender Fauji, played by Arshad Warsi (a series of real life incidents) which happened in Ghaziabad.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is a comedy film written and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Apart from Imran Khan, the film stars Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapur in the lead roles. Set in the rustic surroundings of a village in Haryana, the movie relates the story of Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), a wealthy industrialist who loves his drink, his daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and the unusual bond they both share with Harry’s man friday, Matru (Imran Khan). Much to her father’s delight, Bijlee is all set to marry Baadal (Arya Babbar), the son of a powerful politician Chaudhari Devi (Shabana Azmi). This alliance which is far from just being a simple union of two young people becomes the seed for a story that brings twists and turns in the lives of Matru, Bijlee and Mandola.
Though both the films are of completely different genres, their same release date and strikingly similar look of Imran and Arshad brings them under comparison.
