The man who we have usually seen in a clean-shaved look, Purab Kohli, was now spotted in an absolutely different avatar for his upcoming film AIRLIFT!


Looking at some of his images, we absolutely thought the man may be playing some kind of a goon (possibly even a Don) in the movie.

Confirming the same, Purab was heard saying, 'The character I play is Ibrahim Durani and unlike most of the parts I'm associated with, Ibrahim comes from small town in India and works in the Middle East also the film is set in the 90's so the characters are styled to that time. I had to hound Raja, my director to cast me. I had heard about the part and liked it and though he was confident about me being able to act out the part he thought I looked too urban for it. I went and met him after getting a very unstylish sort of haircut and sporting a heavy beard after a few weeks he finally saw Ibrahim in me.'

AIRLIFT also stars Akshay Kumar as a businessman and Nimrat Kaur is casted as his lead, and it will probably be the first time that Purab Kohli plays a gangster. However, do not worry much because the actor will again be seen in his usual good-boy look in ROCK ON!! 2.
