Amrish Puri: Because of this, Amrish Puri could not see the day of dawn, read what is the reason
When the film ‘Mr India’ was released in 1987, Amrish Puri’s dialogue ‘Mogambo Khush Hua’ was on everyone’s tongue. After Sholay Ki Gabbar, Amrish became the most popular villain in the film playing the villain Mogambo. Although few people know that Amrish Puri was not the first choice for the character of ‘Mogambo’. He shared in his biopic ‘The Act of Life’ that director Shekhar Kapur has already shot more than 60 percent of the film. He was later cast as the villain.
Amrish Puri shared in his book that he was a little surprised that more than half the films had been shot. The book says, “I thought they were missing me now.” Meanwhile, Anupam Kher in an earlier interview with IANS said about Mr India, “He shot for the film before Amrish Puri.”
