'Guns of Banaras' a tribute to Vinod Khanna: Director Sekhar Suri
"My relationship was not just of an actor-director but we were true soul mates as our common point of discussion was philosophy", Suri said.
Director Sekhar Suri said his soon-to-be-released film "Guns of Banaras" is a tribute to late actor Vinod Khanna, who features in a pivotal role in the movie.
Suri said he has always admired Khanna's work and collaborating with the veteran actor was a dream come true.
"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, he is in my thoughts," Suri said in a statement.

"My relationship was not just of an actor-director but we were true soul mates as 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.
"Guns of Banaras" also stars Karan Nath, Zarina Wahab and Shilpa Shirodkar.
The film is scheduled to be released on February 28.
