Meet Gen Zia…hey that’s Kakkaji!

Brain is bigger than buffalo, but money is bigger than both” - Kakkaji

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Sepoy over at Chapati Mystery reports that they’ve found the actor to play Gen Zia-ul-Haq in the film adaption of Charlie Wilson’s War (reviewed on this blog)

It’s Om Puri.

Zia’s image may actually benefit from a sympathetic narrative and a great actor.
