While the extremely popular television series “CID” has broken records, its producer. Mr. B.P.Singh is himself set to create a record of being the oldest debutant actor at the age of 62 years, in Sriram Raghavan’s film, “Agent Vinod”. Here he plays the role of being the boss of Saif Ali Khan at the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
Although he flew back from the US to hear Sriram’s script, he was hesitant at the beginning. Singh had been a part of the crew where everyone was more experienced than him, and had imagined only a cameo role for himself at such an advanced age, but he had quite a few good scenes (6-7) along with Saif. Being candid enough that he should not expect conventional roles at this age, he is; however, open to other offers in acting.
Singh is, however, very happy at the tremendous success of his television series “CID”, running on its 15th year now.
