Seems that Om Puri is playing colorful characters with a vengeance.
If playing flirt middle aged man with a roving eye in coming weekend's release MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP wasn't enough, there is more to come with Puri promising to drop all his inhibitions. Moving on from playing intense characters in most part of his career, now Puri would be seen playing an important character in Anees Bazmee's SINGH IS KINNG. And believe it or not but the veteran actor is called 'Rangeela' in the film!
Off late Om Puri has been taking it quite easy when it comes to enacting a comic role. This was more than visible in BUDDHA MAR GAYA in which he played the most outrageous character ever in his three decade long career - that of a bisexual Guru who doesn't mind swinging both ways to add 'moolah' to his coffers! Some of Puri's other comedy roles in the recent times have been DHOL and VICTORIA NO. 203.
Now it has to be seen how Anees Bazmee presents Om Puri as 'rangeela' once SINGH IS KINNG hits the screens on 8th August.
