It is indeed true! The face of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the current Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was approached for the upcoming movie of KC Bokadia ‘Dirty Politics’ starring controversy queen Mallika Sherawat.
Director KC Bokadia wanted the Delhi CM as the protagonist in his controversial political drama; however, Arvind Kejriwal in ‘reel-life’ too refused for the ‘Dirty Politics’ apparently because of time constraints. The offer was given when Kejriwal resigned as the Delhi CM last year after being in power for 49 days.
Following the rejection from the social activist turned politician, the role was given to veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah.
While speaking to a leading tabloid, the producer and director of the movie confirmed the news and said, “Yes, we had offered a role to Mr Kejriwal, but he could not allot dates to us. He congratulated us for the project, though. So, we approached Naseeruddin Shah. The film is inspired by him.”
Jackie Shroff, Om Puri and Anupam Kher too will be seen in Dirty Politics along with Mallika Sherawat and Naseeruddin Shah that is slated to hit theatres on March 6.
