TV actor Rohitash plays cop in Raju Hirani's Peekay
Popular TV actor Rohitash Gaud of Lapataganj fame will be seen in Rajkumar Hirani's Peekay.
Rohitash is best remembered as Mukundi Lal Gupta in the sitcom. He featured in Hirani's earlier movies - Munnabhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai and 3 Idiots.
Now, he will be seen as a Haryanvi speaking constable in Peekay.
"I am doing a cameo role. I will be playing the part of a police head constable. It is a funny scene," Rohitash told PTI, without divulging further details.
For his part, Rohitash shot for three days in Mumbai in July this year. For the remaining portions, he will have to shoot in Delhi from September.
Apparently, the actor has been a friend of Hirani and that's how he got the film.
"I share a good relation with him (Hirani). I worked with him when he was doing TV, so that's how we know each other," he said.
Rohitash will be sharing screen space in Peekay with the lead actors - Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma.
"It was a nice working experience with Aamir and Anushka. Aamir does lot of detailed work," he added.
Besides Aamir and Anushka, Peekay also stars Sushant Singh Rajput and is slated to release next year.
