Amar Singh to act in Dev Anand's next

March 16, 2009 12:35 IST

Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh seems to have decided to step into his close friend Amitabh Bachchan's acting shoes, and has signed on Dev Anand's next venture.

In an informal chat with reporters in Lucknow, the politician claimed that he had been toying with the idea ever since he announced the candidature of Sanjay Dutt from the Lucknow seat.
 
"Devsaab approached me and asked if I would like to feature in his next film," Singh disclosed. "I told him that it would be a pleasure to work with him. The film centres around the home secretary [to be played by Singh] and how he tackles situations."
 
The film would be shot at his Lodhi Road residence after the elections are over.
