Guns of Banaras hosted the special screening of the film one day before the release. During the film screening, Director Sekhar Suri was seen along with the lead actors Natali Kaur, who was previously seen in John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome and Ganesh Venkatraman who is known for a South Indian Movie ‘Abhiyum Naanum’.
Sekhar Suri said that Guns of Banaras is a tribute to late actor Vinod Khanna, who is seen in a pivotal role in the film.
“Working with Vinod Khanna was a dream come true. Like any other fan, I always admired his work. I became a film director maybe only to direct his last film ‘Guns of Banaras’. Our movie is a tribute to one of the finest actors of the Indian film industry. I don’t miss him because He is in my thoughts,” said Suri.
“Our relationship was not just of an actor-director but we were true soulmates. Our common point of discussion was philosophy. I am an ardent follower of J Krishna Murthy while Vinod Ji was a follower of Osho Rajnesh,” he added.
The movie will be marked as Vinod Khanna’s last project. He died in April 2017 at the age of 70.
Guns of Banaras also featured Karan Nath, Zarina Wahab and Shilpa Shirodkar and film is going to release today.
