Purab In Manto

Do you remember Purab Kohli? The handsome actor has come to fame with a television series called Hip Hip Hurray in Zee Tv. However, we have seen Purab last in the movie Noor with Sonakshi Sinha. It is well known that Gangs of Wasseypur actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen in the titular role in Nandita Das directed Manto. Purab will appear in a small yet poignant role.

Manto is an ambitious project for the talented actor director Nandita Das. Purab is expected to be a sub plot in Manto. Purab is quite thrilled to work under the direction of Nandita Das. The movie will celebrate life of Urdu poet Sadat Hasan Manto. For the role of Manto’s wife, Rasika Dubey has been chosen.

Controversial episodes in Manto’s life may feature in the movie. Purab is part of these stories. Purab has worked with Nandita in the past also. Purab has done Supari and Bas Yun Hi with Nadita as an actor. These are one of the first movies in Purab’s career. Both Nandita and Purab have been seen together in Onir’s I am also. According to Purab, Nandita and Farhan are only two actors with whom he has worked in more than one movie. As, both Nandita and Farhan is a director. So, Purab wants to work in their movies too. Therefore, the Noor actor Purab Kohli cannot say ‘no’ when he was asked to do small role in Manto. Importance of the project is also a reason to do it certainly.

Purab will be featured as a man who has gone to hire a prostitute along with his two other friends in the Sadat Hasan Manto’s short story called Dus Rupaiya. Later on, they have been presented a child as a prostitute. It is really an uncomfortable story. Ranvir Shorey and Divya Dutta may also appear in another story by Manto called Thanda Gosht. The story will take you to 1947.
