Om Puri slighted with his role cut short in ‘Dabangg’
Mumbai: Veteran actor Om Puri is seething with anger as his role in ‘Dabangg’ has been cut short to such an extent that it has been reduced to a ‘three-scene-cameo’.
News has it that when Om Puri saw the footage of the film, he was appalled, especially because his main scenes with Salman Khan had been completely chopped off. However, when Om met Abhinav Kashyap, the director expressed his sheer helplessness.
Talking to a news daily about the same, a visibly shaken Om Puri retorted, “Yes my role has been mercilessly cut and this includes a critical scene in the film that has been edited unnecessarily. Now my role is a three-scene cameo. Anyway, let it be. I have received my full remuneration. And I better be happy with that.”
When enquired whether if this is happening for the first time in his cinematic career, Om thundered, “Main kya karoon? Can I fight with them? Meri kya auqat hai? Hamari nahin chalti hai.”
