Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who will be seen in K.C. Bokadia’s “Dirty Politics”, says his character in the film is somewhat like Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“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.

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