Purab Kohli who will be seen in the upcoming movie Airlift with Akshay Kumar and Nimrit Kaur adorns a very different look in contrast to his previous looks. For the first time he will be seen playing something earthy unlike his goody boy image. Purab had to grow hair and beard for this look.
When contacted Purab, he said “The character I play is Ibrahim Durani and unlike most of the parts I’m associated with, Ibrahim comes from small town in India and works in the Middle East also the film is set in the 90’s so the characters are styled to that time. I had to hound Raja, my director to cast me. I had heard about the part and liked it and though he was confident about me being able to act out the part he thought I looked too urban for it. I went and met him after getting a very unstylish sort of haircut and sporting a heavy beard after a few weeks he finally saw Ibrahim in me.”
