Amitabh Bachchan confirmed on his blog that he will be doing a “friendly appearance” as a gangster-turned-politician in Ram Gopal Varma’s film Department. He wrote, “Ram Gopal Varma’s Department where I have agreed to do a friendly appearance begins next week and that should come as a somewhat better proposition for me.” Interestingly, the film was earlier supposed to star Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. It has now gone to Rana Daggubati due to Jr Bachchan’s ‘date problems’. Others in the cast of Department include Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Nasseruddin Shah and Anjana Sukhani. RGV and Big B have worked together in Sarkar, Sarkar Raj, RGV Ki Aag, Nishabd and Rann.
