Purab Kohli first shot to fame with the 1998 show, Hip Hip Hurray. Post that, the actor worked in several Bollywood films, including Rock On (2008) and My Brother…Nikhil (2005). Now, the actor will return to the small screen with an upcoming fiction TV show, in which he plays a prisoner of war.

Apparently, to prepare for his role, Purab will be spending a lot of time with a military psychologist. “The psychologist (who does not wish to be named) is Purab’s close family friend, and has an experience of over three decades. Purab will be in Pune all of next week to speak to her for the role,” says a source close to the actor.

Apparently, Purab’s role on the show is quite intense, and that’s why he wants to understand what goes on in the mind of a prisoner of war, who has been held captive. We tried reaching Purab, but he remained unavailable for a comment.
