Om Puri plays a very prominent role in Kabir Khan’s ‘Tubelight‘ starring Salman as the lead actor.
Talking to reporters about the film ‘Tubelight’ while leaving Ladkah shoot, he said, “In Tubelight I play a Muslim Gandhian. The film is set during the Indo-China war of 1963. I have a very interesting sympathetic character. If you remember I had played a sympathetic liberal Pakistani mullah in Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It’s good to be cast in characters with unexpected shades of empathy.”
“Kabir knows how to use actors in the best way possible,” he added.
Om Puri added more, “I had done Dabangg with him. Then we did Bajrangi Bhaijaan, now Tubelight. Salman has evolved as an actor.”
