Om Puri, who passed away last morning after suffering a massive heart attack, will be last seen in Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight and director Kabir Khan says he is glad to have had the veteran actor on board in the period drama.
"He is a very talented actor who can play any kind of role. We were glad to have him on board for Tubelight. He has a good, positive role. Its not a cameo like Bajrangi Bhaijaan," Kabir told PTI.
The Ek Tha Tiger helmer, however, did not divulge details about Puri's role in the film.
"He had already shot for his part. We will miss him, his warmth," Kabir said.
According to sources, Puri plays the role of a Muslim Gandhian. However there is no official confirmation about this yet.
Tubelight is an upcoming historical war drama film which has been produced by Salman Khan and Kabir.
Set in the 1962 Sino-Indian War, the film stars Salman, Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu.
