Since Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again is set in the 80s, all the actors will be styled differently to keep in with the theme. The most noticeable change, though, will perhaps be in Imran Khan, who dons a grungy gangster look for this role that’s different from what he has done in the past. Of course, since it’s not a character he’s used to playing, Imran had to take inspiration from somewhere. Can you guess where?

Yep, at the trailer launch of the film recently, the actor said that in order to prepare for his role, he watched the 80s movies of both Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor. The main aim was to understand what things were like back in that era, something he enjoyed doing, since he says it was great to copy actors like them. Guess fans of 80s masala cinema will be pleased :)
