Om Puri plays Ashok Kumar kinda sutradhar on TV
The actor returns to small screen with 'Chal - Shey aur Maat'
Remember how veteran actor Ashok Kumar played a sutradhar on the television show Hum Log
with an extended epilogue at the end of each episode. Actor Om Puri
will be doing something similar on television with the new show ' Chal - Shey aur Maat
'.Chal - Shey aur Maat
is designed as a suspense-thriller show. Director duo Abbas-Mustan known for their expertise in the genre are the creators and presenters of the show. And to take it a step further, the makers have got Om Puri to play a sutradhar. "Om Puri will give a recap of the episode in his inimitable baritone and also add to the element of mystery", says a source associated with the show.
Years ago, Om Puri did a lot of television on Doordarshan and is known for his quality work in shows like Bharat Ek Khoj
and Kakkaji Kahin
. More recently he lent his voice occasionally to serials like Phulwa
and Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo
