He may not have so far done it in his real life but Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh is all set to play home minister in a Bollywood film.
"The offer to act as home minister has come to me from none other than Bollywood veteran Dev Anand in his forthcoming film 'Chargesheet'," Amar Singh told reporters in an informal chat at his residence in Lucknow.
Describing himself as a "Dev Anand fan", he said, "It is an honour for me to play the role."
Amar Singh was flanked by film star-turned-Samajwadi Party nominee for the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat Sanjay Dutt, who arrived in Lucknow on Saturday to launch his poll campaign.
When a journalist asked Sanjay Dutt if he will give Amar Singh some lessons in acting, he shot back: "Amar Singhji does not need any training. He is adept in everything."
