Actor Deepak Tijori is gung ho about his comeback on the big screen in a substantial role after a hiatus. The actor, who was seen in a small role in Raja Natwarlal (2014), has been mostly directing films. His directorial venture, Tom Dick and Harry Returns, is being filmed and his last release as a director was Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016). Deepak says that Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, is the perfect comeback that he could have asked for.
“It has been more than a decade that I haven’t done a proper role. So, when Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 came my way, I found the role very exciting and impactful. Also, I was already looking forward to doing something out of the box,” says Deepak.
On how he was roped in for the third instalment of the franchise, the actor says that it was a “surprise” in a way. He recounts, “I had gone to meet Tigmanshu, as he’s a good friend and I had grown my beard at that time. I left some photos and when Rahul Mittra (the producer), saw my pictures sporting that beard, things fell in place and they offered me the role.”
