The 46-year-old actor, who was seen before in Shakti and Wanted, has a meaty role in Singham. Like original version, the director has given an equal footage with the lead star and the major portions of the film are shot on these actors. In fact, the critics say that Prakash Raj steals the show in the film.
The Mangalore-born star will be seen in the role of a extortionist-cum-politician named Jaykant Shikre. The movie also features Ajay Devgn and Magadheera actress Kajal Aggarwal in the leads. It is directed by Rohit Shetty.
