Answer - I had done a film Sham Singh Roy, it is a South film, so I had played a role in that of a villain, our fight master, he took me there.
Recommended to Anil ji because Anil ji was looking for a villain. Anil ji liked me, then he introduced Sunny Paaji, I met him, then there was a talk of responsibility with him that till now you have seen Amrish Puri ji, what to talk about Ghadar, watch any of his films, he has a different character in each film. It is my good luck that I became a part of Ghadar. As our writers narrated to me, then Anil ji got me done, along with Sunny Paji's inputs kept getting together and things became easier.
Question - Amrish Puri ji has done many films in which he played the role of villain, after that this responsibility has come on you, so how did you accept this thing?
Answer - Sunny father told me that nowadays villains also become heroes, but at that time the villains used to play the role of villains only. He said that there is no villain in the industry for a long time, we watch films, and there are villains in them, but now there is no particular villain, then the responsibility will become big on you, one for Gadar and also for the villain.
