Is Amar Singh a part of Bullett Raja?

Looks like the Samajwadi Party leader is a part of Saif Ali Khan-Sonakshi Sinha starrer. Read on to find out more…

Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Bullett Raja which stars Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles. Hold you horses. Before you jump to any conclusions, let us clarify that the politician is not really acting in the film but there is an actor in the film who resembles him.

When asked the director Tigmanshu Dhulia about the resemblance he said, “Yes, we realised that this character who plays the role of a politician in the film looks like Amar Singh, but the role is not inspired by Singh’s life”

“When we were conducting auditions for the role, we found this artist, Gyaneshwar Mishra, from Lucknow, who looked like Amar Singh. Since it was the role of a politician, we thought it would be interesting to cast him since anyone who sees him is reminded of Amar Singh, even though his character in the film has nothing to do with him,” he added.

Bullett Raja is based on the political atmosphere in Uttar Pradesh and is slated to release on November 29.
