Om Puri To Star In A Film On 'Gandhigiri' Next
After playing a sleazy politician in his last film Dirty Politics, veteran actor Om Puri will be next seen in a film titled Gandhigiri, which is based on the values and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.
The last film in Bollywood to deal with Gandhiji was Rajkumar Hirani's Lage Raho Munnabhai and talking about his upcoming film, Puri said, ''I am very happy to play a role like Rai Saheb in Gandhigiri as he upholds the importance of Mahatma Gandhi's values for today's generation. The good part about the film is that the teachings of the great leader will be shown in an entertaining way, and will not sound as a preaching. The film also highlights the fact that people are not bad by birth, situations and circumstances make them choose the wrong path.''
Apart from Om Puri, Gandhigiri will also star Sanjay Mishra, Brijesh Karniwal, Anupam Shyam, Meghna Haldar, Dolly Chawla, Ravi Singh and Rishi Bhutani. Produced by Pratap Singh Yadav of Aagaman Films and written and directed by Sanoj Mishra, the film is expected to release this year end.
