I play idolised version of Kejriwal in ‘Dirty Politics’: Naseeruddin

“I play an idolised version of Delhi’s Chief Minister (Arvind Kejriwal)…like him, this character also stands for right things and succeeds thereafter,” the actor said here Tuesday during a press conference to promote the film.

Kejriwal, who has become Delhi’s chief minister for the second time, was a team member of Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement. He then took the political route and formed the Aam Aadmi Party. He first became the chief minister after the 2013 Delhi assembly polls but stepped down after 49 days. He made a historic comeback in the assembly polls this year.

Like Kejriwal, Naseeruddin’s character in “Dirty Politics” is a “political activist and always believes in taking action against wrong doings”.

“Somewhere he is a witness of everything that happens in the story and at last he is the one who decides to take the positive action,” he added.

“Dirty Politics” also features Mallika Sherawat, Jackky Shroff, Anupam Kher, Ashutosh Rana and Om Puri in key roles.
