Veteran actor Anupam Kher said he would love to play the iconic villain from Mr India - Mogambo, if given a chance.

Kher has played diverse roles in his over three-decade-long career and said, "I am not in favour of doing any role of anybody on-screen again because I think the roles I have played so far were perfect, according to the situation and the career that time. But if I get a chance and if 'Mr. India' is made again, then I would like to do Mogambo's role."

The actor is not new to negative roles - in the beginning of his career he sent shivers down the audience's spine as Dr. Dang in "Karma".

Mr. India, directed by Shekhar Kapur also starred Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Annu Kapoor in pivotal roles. The film is best remembered for Amrish Puri's portrayal of Mogambo and his famous dialogue- "Mogambo khush hua".







Although, Anupam feels it is impossible to match the same dimension that late Amrish Puri added to Mogambo's character, he would like to interpret it in his own way. "I would love to do it with a different dimension because I feel it is impossible to give the same dimension to the character as given by Amrish Puriji," he added.
