New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) After playing substantial roles in films like “Chandni Bar”, “Page” and “Rang De Basanti”, two time National Award winning actor Atul Kulkarni is to play a character named Gobar in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s “Dilli 6″. Although Atul refused to divulge any further details about his character, he confirmed the news saying: “In ‘Dilli 6′, I am playing Gobar. The role is totally opposite to what I played in ‘Rang De…’.”

Atul spoke at the ongoing 10th Osian’s-Cinefan Film Festival of Asian and Arab cinema.

The actor shares screen space with Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Om Puri in “Dilli 6″, which is based on the director’s growing up years in the Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi.

The actor informed that he will also be seen in “Yeh Mera India”, “Allah Ke Bande” and an English film titled “Chaurasta” with director Anjan Dutt.

At the moment, the actor is very content with the way his career has shaped up.

“Considering the age at which I started doing cinema, I have got good roles. I have worked with most top actors like Aamir Khan and even some of the best directors in Bollywood,” he said.

Atul is quite confident that he looks much younger than the three Khans of Bollywood - Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir - despite being born the same year.

“I was born in 1965 like the three Khans. But I look much younger than them. Isn’t it?” he remarked.
