Director Apoorva Lakhia's Mission Istanbul has been in the news since it was launched. The film starring Suniel Shetty, Vivek Oberoi and Zayed Khan in lead roles is an action packed film which is shot in the capital of Turkey.
Apart from the main cast which was shooting some pivotal scenes in Mumbai, yesterday, there was yet another familiar face on the sets. That face was none other than that of the American president, George W. Bush. For all of you who have almost fainted on hearing this, let us clarify that it was not Bush himself but a look-alike of the US President who was present on the sets.
The actor called Brent Mendenhall is someone who bears an uncanny resemblance to the US President and has even appeared on a number of T.V. shows, films, corporate and political gatherings in the West. Needless to say Brent will be playing the role of President Bush who comes on an official visit to India in the film.
Well, while many of our Hindi films have had look-alikes / duplicates of quite a few celebrities in the past, this one sure takes the cake.
