We've been told that the 48 year-old actor will now be seen playing the role of an affable-yet-strict teacher to actor Farhan Akhtar in his next, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Milkha Singh biopic, BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG (BMB).
This will be Prakash's first Hindi film role where he doesn't play a negative character.
A source close to the film reveals, ''Prakash will be playing the ustad (teacher) to Farhan's character in BMB. He will be seen as Farhan's first teacher when he joins the army. His character is of a strict teacher, a commanding officer of the platoon, whose job is to push all the army cadets to their limits.
In the film, Prakash's character's job is to refine and discipline the cadets who have recently joined the army.
The source says, ''Milkha joins the armed forces after a rough phase during his younger days. There he meets his first teacher, who is not only a strict disciplinarian, but also very positive in his approach. He plays a very important role in Milkha's life in terms of developing his mind and attitude.''
