British funnyman Omid Djalili took inspiration from an unusual source for his role in upcoming movie MR. NICE - he studied film footage of legendary cricketer IMRAN KHAN.
The Infidel actor plays real-life Pakistani drug baron Saleem Malik in the new movie, which chronicles the life of famed marijuana smuggler Howard Marks.
And he is adamant it was easy for him to portray Malik, who was privately-educated in the U.K. - he mimicked the accent of sportsman-turned-politician Khan, who attended England's prestigious Oxford University.
Djalili tells British TV show This Morning, "I am ridiculous (in the movie). When people say, 'What was your research?' I say it was a posh, Oxford-educated Pakistani so I just watched Imran Khan videos all day to get the posh Pakistani kind of thing."
