'Paan Singh Tomar' is finally releasing today. Happy to have eventually managed to tell a story that he always wanted to, director Tigmanshu Dhulia reassures that the film isn't one of those regular revenge dramas that one associates with a dacoit movie.
"It is not a revenge movie, it is a pride movie," says Tigmanshu, "Let's not forget that other than being an athlete, Paan Singh was an Army man. Whatever he did, it was for pride. When he was in the Army, he served the regiment for it's pride. When he ran for the country, even that was for pride. And later when he turned a dacoit, that was for the pride of his family. I guess that is good enough 'masala' to make a movie."
On his return with Irrfan Khan, he adds, "Yes, Irrfan and I share a very interesting chemistry. The fact that we are also very good friends and work well together adds on the tuning. Hopefully you would see that magic on screen."
