This year the film industry lost one of the most versatile actors – Om Puri. As an actor, Om Puri’s last film was Kabir Khan’s Tubelight. One of the main highlights of the film has to be Om Puri dancing in the film’s ‘Radio’ song. Salman had tweeted about the loss and expressed his grief. He had written, “So sad . Lost one of the most iconic Actors, RIP Om Puri ji.”
Today, at the trailer launch of Tubelight, Salman was asked about Om Puri ji and his answer will surely leave you teary-eyed. He said, “Whenever I see the teaser and the song, I see him and it kills me. I don’t enjoy watching the teaser and the song because I see him. One moment, he was there and then he was no more. This is my reaction to Tubelight’s teaser and Radio song.”
In an earlier interview, Kabir Khan while talking about Om Puri’s character, “He is a very talented actor who can play any kind of role. We were glad to have him on board for Tubelight. He has a good, positive role. It’s not a cameo like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He had already shot for his part. We will miss him, his warmth.”
Tubelight is an upcoming historical war drama film and is set in the 1962 Sino-Indian War. The film also stars Sohail Khan as his reel brother. Talking about working with Sohail, Salman said, ” We are playing brothers in the film and the emotional scenes (with him) just messed me up. I was in tears while dubbing for the emotional scenes with Sohail. Tubelight was emotionally very draining.”
The film also features Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. The teaser of the film has been creating the right buzz and the trailer will be out today.
