Describing close friend and actor Gul Panag as sensible and smart, Kohli said he would be happy to support the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate from Chandigarh for the Lok Sabha polls
“She is very smart and sensible. I know Gul well personally. She would make a good leader and I would be happy to support her if she needs it,” said Purab Kohli.
“I am in support of a good leader and whoever can do good work,” Kohli asserted, clarifying he is not linked to any political outfit.
Kohli was in the city to promote his forthcoming film Jal, the story of a Bakka, a person gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert. The film also stars Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain.
Jal recently competed at the Busan International Film Festival, and was also part of the Indian Panorama section at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
With the backdrop of water scarcity, the film tells a complex and intriguing story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of humans. Kohli and Kulhari also participated in a waterless Holi event at the PC Chandra Gardens to highlight preservation of water.
