More than a year after his death, the famous baritone of the late Amrish Puri will come alive on the Silver screen again as the veteran actor's last film 'Kachchi Sadak' hits cinema screens all over the world on Friday.

Directed by Sanjay Singh, an erstwhile assistant to filmmaker J.P. Dutta , 'Kachchi Sadak', shot against the backdrop of an 18th century fort in Jodhpur, was the late Puri's last acting assignment before he passed away in January last year.



Starring theatre actor Rahul Singh and former Miss India Asia Pacific Parmeeta Katkar in lead roles, 'Kachchi Sadak', a film in the action/drama genre which traces the protagonist Randhir's "emotional roller coaster" ride on the rough streets of life, has Puri in the role of a strict jailor who thinks that prisoners are 'recyclable garbage'.

"The role played by the veteran actor is integral to the film as the protagonist Randhir's stint in Jodhpur central jail is one of the turning points of the film. In the film, Amrish Puri fights crime both inside and outside the jail," director Sanjay Singh said.

"Infact, when I narrated the script to Amrish Puri, he found his role in it very interesting and despite his falling health and the fact that the film involved a grueling shooting schedule in Rajasthan, he agreed to do it," Sanjay said during a press conference in New Delhi Tuesday night to promote the film.

Reminiscing about his experiences of working with the veteran actor, the filmmaker said, "Amrishji's sincerity and commitment as an actor was exemplary.

Despite the grueling outdoor schedule in Jodhpur jail, the actor, in spite of his poor health and his being allergic to dust, displayed his trademark gusto and energy while essaying the character of the disciplinarian jailor."

The film's leading actress, the former Miss India Asia Pacific, seemed to be in awe of the late actor.
