At the recent press conference where the makers unveiled the trailer of Abhishek Bachchan and Saiyami Kher starrer Ghoomer, the actor opened up on playing a coach in the film and what made him take up such a challenging role.

“What I liked about the character is that he is very assertive and you will feel that he is brash and rude. However, he doesn't want to give her (Kher) any special treatment because the world wouldn't give her special treatment. He doesn't want her to look for sympathy. Putting that aside, how good of a cricketer are you? If we tell you this is a story of a one-handed cricketer, you will have sympathy for her, but we don’t want sympathy. That’s his way of inspiring her. That’s a very unique way of portraying this character and that’s what I liked about this.”

Directed by R. Balki Ghoomer also stars Shabana Azmi and Angad Bedi with Amitabh Bachchan in a special appearance. The film releases in theatres on August 18.
