Bollywood scriptwriter-director Amole Gupte, who debuted as an actor in Vishal Bharadwaj's Kaminey playing a Maharashtrian mafia man, will next be seen as a gangster in a movie titled With Love to Obama.
Gupte essays the role of a kidnapping business kingpin in Uttar Pradesh, in this flick, written and directed by Subhash Kapoor.
"The film is a first of its kind comedy and a satire on recession where I play a politician-cum-gang lord whose business is unaffected by recession," Amole said.
The story revolves around how recession has affected not only top corporate houses in metro cities but also gangsters in UP.
Apart from Gupte, who is said to be the surprise package in the film, the movie also stars Rajat Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Manu Rishi Chadha and Sanjay Mishra.
The film is being produced by Ashok Pandey of Revel Films.
