Salman Khan Inspires Imran Khan? 'OUATIMD' Actor Sports Firoza Like 'Dabangg' Star
By IBTimes Staff Reporter | June 20, 2013 4:57 PM EST
Bollywood Actor Imran Khan, who will be seen in "Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobara (OUATIMD)", will sport a Firoza - a blue stone similar to the one that Salman Khan has been wearing for the past three years.
Salman has been wearing the blue stone embedded in a silver bracelet, while Imran Khan will reportedly wear it inserted in a silver ring. It is said that wearing a Firoza stone is considered Holy among Muslims.
"He will wear an unpolished Firoza in a silver ring. It has been made by his family jeweller in Bhopal. Wearing a Firoza is a huge thing among Muslims, so Imran feels very good about owning one now," a source close to the actor told a leading daily.
Imran said,"I have always wanted to wear an authentic Firoza, which is why I decided to source it from my hometown, Bhopal. It looks beautiful and is a raw stone."
The actor will be seen playing a Muslim character for the first time in this film, a sequel to the period gangster flick "OUATIM", which was released in 2010.
Directed by Milan Luthria, the sequel has Akshay Kumar reprising the role of Shoaib which was played by Emraan Hashmi in the original. Imran Khan appears as Aslam who is under the patronage of Shoaib.
Actresses Sonakshi Sinha and Sonali Bendre are seen in significant characters in the flick. Produced by Ekta Kapoor under Balaji Motion Pictures, the sequel was expected to get released on 8 August. In a bid to avoid clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express", the release date of "OUATIMD" was pushed further to 15 August.
