Actor-turned-filmmaker Puneet Issar is gearing up to direct his next project, Gama۪. Issar says that he had initially planned the project with Salman Khan in mind, though now he feels his leading actor Sohail Khan is the perfect choice.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Issar said, Five years ago I thought of this film only because of Salman Khan but he was unwell at that point of time. He had to play a wrestler and the film was physically gruelling_ so instead Salman said that he wants to produce the film for me. Meanwhile Sohail auditioned for the film and we really liked his performance. He looks amazing as Gama_ Nobody could have played this character better than Sohail.
Issar, who was only recently evicted from Bigg Boss 8۪, is currently spending time with his family. While pre-production of the film is in full-swing, the director will be taking some time out for himself before the shooting starts.
