"When such an established director approaches you it always feels good. Vishal is one of the finest directors working today. When he approached me, it was a great honour," said Imran whose "Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu" is releasing Friday.
"He (Bhardwaj) has his own standard. I always question myself whether I will be able to live up to that standard. So I am glad about it," he added.
Talking about his new look in the film, Imran said: "I have pierced my ears and am growing my beard... We have not even started the shooting."
"Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola" is a romantic comedy and it also stars Anushka Sharma. The 29-year-old said that he will "start shooting for Vishal's film from Valentine's Day".
