Mumbai: Anupam Kher, Om Puri and Paresh Rawal - the three veterans have come together in director Rahul Rawail's new film Buddha Mar Gaya. The film promises to be a laugh riot and has a few surprises you would have never thought of.
“It’s completely unconventional I think. It’s something you have never seen before - Om Puri without a shirt,” says Kher.
“I wish I had muscles. Then I would have felt more proud,” adds Puri.
Buddha Mar Gaya revolves around Anupam Kher who plays a dead man in the film, and people around him try to cheat others using his dead body.
Item girl Rakhi Sawant plays the buddha killer in the film.
“I am doing a lot of social work in this movie. I am killing all the bad men. But I'm not killing them with any weapons. I am killing them with my looks,” says Rakhi.
Meanwhile, there's another kind of veteran who is making his debut in this film at the age of 55. Jeetendra Bhargava, a familiar face on the small screen who served as spokesperson for Air India for a long time, will now be seen on the big screen too. And interestingly, it was the Mumbai rains that did the trick for him.
“About two years ago, when Mumbai was in the midst of heavy rains and floods, he (Rahul Rawail) saw me on TV. It was at that time he sent me an SMS, which said that I have very good facisl expressions, and that he would give me a role when the next opportunity comes. True to words, he came to me at the beginning of the year,” says Bhargava.
