dhai kilo ka haath

has done enough damage to his 25-year acting career to make him shed his beefy body for that of the average priest’s. The reason behind his image makeover: Chanakya director, Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s forthcoming film,

Mohalla Assi

.



“I agreed to do this film not just because the plot excited me, but because our industry will never pick up real talent, like Dwivedi. They want to pick up bullshit and give them recognition,” says the 54-year-old.
