Sheer honour for Satish Kaushik to step in for Om Puri


Mumbai: Actor Satish Kaushik has stepped in for late actor Om Puri, whose voice-over in Oms former wife Seema Kapoors feature film “Mr Kabaadi” has been done by Satish.

Satish said: “I was shooting in Delhi and Seema Kapoor called me to do a voice-over which was meant to be done by Puri saheb. I flew back to Mumbai for a day to dub. Puri saheb’s dialogue delivery is an inspiration for coming generation of actors. It was my sheer honour and privilege to take up this responsibility.”
