With his named doing the rounds for alleged money-laundering, Sharad Pawar today said that he’d be happy to go to jail as he wants Bollywood to make a movie on him.
“While speaking exclusively to Faking News, the maratha strongman said, “When Sanjay Dutt was sent to jail, Bollywood made a movie on him named Sanju. The movie was a big hit. I too want a movie made on my life. For that I am ready to go to jail.”
Mr. Pawar also revealed how he always fancied being an actor before joining politics. “Not many people know that I was associated with Marathi theater in the early years of my life. I even auditioned for the role of Vijay in Deewar, which later went to Amitabh Bachchan. I realized later politics is no different from bollywood, as in both need good acting skills. So I decided to try my luck in politics,” he said.
Sources say that the NCP Chief is already in talks with director Rajkumar Hirani. It is not yet clear who would portray the politician on the big screen. A few names are being thrown around, but it seems Sharad Pawar is keen on Akshay Kumar to play the role.
“Akshay is a great actor and he has done a lot of patriotic movies in the last decade. So he is a natural choice to essay the social work done by Saheb,” remarked a spkesperson for NCP.
The bollywood actor however denied having any knowledge of Mr. Pawar’s biopic and said that already has his hands full with other patriotic projects for the next 10 years.
