Randeep recalls his role as Sarabjit, believes karma has caught up with his killer

New Delhi, April 14 (IANS) After learning about Late Sarabjit Singh’s killer gunned down in Pakistan, actor Randeep Hooda, who played his role in the 2016 biographical drama ‘Sarbjit’ said that karma does catch up even if through unknown men.

Amir Tanba, a key figure behind the killing of Sarabjit Singh in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail in 2013, was targeted and gunned down by unidentified gunmen outside his residence in Lahore’s Islampura. The incident is being seen as a revenge killing by hired killers.

Randeep Hooda expressed his emotions on the recent development, stating, “While doing the Sarabjit biopic it was always a very tragic feeling that when things were on the verge of working out to extradite him to India and get him back home to his family he was murdered in the jail.” He also mentioned attending the last rites of Sarabjit’s sister, Dalbir Kaur, who passed away in 2022.

The actor pondered on how Dalbir Kaur would have felt upon hearing about the attacker’s demise, considering her years-long fight for justice. Randeep expressed his intention to reach out to Sarabjit’s daughters soon to discuss the recent events, highlighting that “Karma does catch up even if through unknown men.”

Directed by Omung Kumar, ‘Sarbjit’ stars Randeep Hooda in the lead role as Sarabjit Singh, alongside Aishwarya Rai, Richa Chadha, and Darshan Kumar. The film portrays the harrowing story of Sarabjit Singh, who spent 22 years in a Pakistani prison on charges of alleged terrorism and spying, before his tragic death.
