Om Puri's last film to release in August
The film is directed by the late actor's first wife Seema Kapoor
Late actor Om Puri's last film Mr. Kabaadi, a satirical comedy, will hit the screens next month. The film which has Annu Kapoor playing the titular role is written and directed by Om Puri's first wife Seema Kapoor.
In a statement, Mrs.Kapoor said,"Mr. Kabaadi is a satirical comedy. I believe that comedy arises when thoughts and emotions that lay hidden in the subconscious are expressed consciously. This film is about a kabaadiwala (a scrap dealer) who, when he becomes rich, flaunts his wealth, changes his wardrobe, tries a different accent, expands his business - all to be like other millionaires around him."
The cast also includes Sarika, Vinay Pathak, Rajveer Singh, Kashish Vora and Brijendra Kala. Talking about the cast, the director said,"All the actors in the film are power performers. The film has shaped up quite well and it will be liked by the classes as well as the masses."
Om Puri, a Padma Shri awardee, died of a heart attack in January at his residence. He was 66.
