Dhulia went on and said, “I do very few films as an actor but when a filmmaker friend feels that I can do justice to the certain role and when I need some money then only I do a film. It’s a very technical film in which SRK is playing a character of a dwarf so I wanted to see how it is made because when Kamal Hassan, in Appu Raja, did it and that time he did that with folded legs and VFX facility also wasn’t even available.”

The filmmaker showed his acting talent in many films like Hero, Manjhi - The Mountain Man, Shahid, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, but his role of Ramadhir Singh in Gangs of Wasseypur was more iconic than anything. Since he’ll also be playing a role of a father, it would be interesting to see how the role turns out to be.
