Yes, you read it right. Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal was asked by the makers of Dirty Politics to play the main protagonist in the film.
Directed by KC Bokadia, the movie Dirty Politics features Mallika Sherwat, OM Puri, Ashutosh Rana, Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Jackie Shroff among others.
It has been learnt that Arvind Kejriwal was first asked by the makers to play the hero of the film but the Delhi CM said no, apparently due to time constraints. Later, the role was offered to Nasseruddin Shah who accepted the offer.
"Yes, we had offered a role to Mr. Kejriwal but he coud not allot dates to us. He congratulated us for the project, though. So, we approached Naseeruddin Shah. The film is inspired by him," said director of Dirty Politics, KC Bokadia.
Well, it would have been interesting if Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Mallika Sherawat shared the screen space together in Dirty Politics.
