Dibakar Banerjee is a man of varied tastes. After delving into the complexities of a common man's idiosyncrasies with Khosla ka Ghosla and modern day love-lust affairs with Love Sex aur Dhokha, he is now looking at politics.



Buzz is that Banerjee's next movie is loosely based on ex-Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's assassination. Apparently, Banerjee had wanted to make a polical-thriller for a long time but he got busy with LSD. Lately, he has been digging deep and researching on top political assassinations.

Lead actress for the film is yet to be finalised. A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Dibakar is considering Manisha Koirala and Sushmita Sen for the role of a female politician in the film. Talks are also on with Kalki for playing the female lead in the film."

Emraan Hashmi confirmed the news and said, "Yes I am in talks with Dibakar."
