Almost all of us would agree that the term, “Good Politician” is oxymoron, unless you’re a politician, of course.
Actor Irrfan Khan had once said that it’s difficult to make films on politics in India. The actor had said this in a context, during the release of his then upcoming movie, Madaari.
Films with politics in the backdrop have always been under scrutiny. While, of course, Censor Board is one problem, the fear of influencing common men against or in favour of a particular political party or person is the other.
These are some prominent names from the world of Indian politics and our suggestions on who would play them the best on screen. Check this out:
1- Saurabh Shukla – Amit Shah
Saurabh Shukla, much known for his roles in Satya, Barfi!, Jolly LLB, Kick, PK, Jolly LLB 2 and Raid can portray the role of our Home Minister Amit Shah with ease.
2- Katrina Kaif – Sonia Gandhi
Although the filmmakers didn’t say it out loud in public, Katrina’s character in Rajneeti was loosely based on Congress party president, Sonia Gandhi. No doubt she will be perfect to play Sonia Gandhi in her biopic.
3- Kumud Mishra – Arvind Kejriwal
The most apprehended movie would be Delhi CM’s biopic. Arvind Kejriwal is one of the most controversial and popular figures of contemporary Indian politics and the actor who can ace his role is Kumud Mishra.
4- Paresh Rawal – Narendra Modi
It is only fair that one of the best actors in the industry gets to play the current PM of our nation. Also their looks are uncannily similar.
5- Piyush Mishra – Mulayam Singh Yadav
If ever a biopic on Samajwadi’s Mulayam Singh Yadav is made, then Piyush Mishra should play the lead. Both looks uncannily similar too. Piyush will do complete justice to the role.
6- Diljit Dosanjh – Navjot Singh Sidhu
The only person who can ace the role of Navjot Singh Sidhu is our very own Sardar ji, Diljit Dosanjh. He can portray Sidhu’s personality on screen perfectly.
7- Manoj Bajpayee – Arun Jaitley
After all these years, Manoj Bajpayee has built an immense trust in the minds of audience that he can perfectly do whatever role he’s offered! If he got to play any Indian politician then Arun Jaitley will be best for him.
8- Ranbir Kapoor – Rahul Gandhi
The chocolate boy of Bollywood, Ranbir Kapoor can ace the role of Rahul Gandhi on screen. We have seen Ranbir in Rajneeti, and he shines equally and arguably brighter than rest as he nails the role of shrewd kingmaker successfully.
9- Vidya Balan – Sushma Swaraj/Smriti Irani
We believe that Vidya will absolutely ace the role of Sushma Swaraj/Smriti Irani. Be it speeches in the parliament or interviews in press conference, Vidya can do all of that like a pro! The woman has all the weapons to pull off the role.
10- Ajay Devgn – Nitish Kumar
Ajay Devgn has done all kinds of role in his films. Be it a policeman, a lover boy, or any other he has perfectly nailed every one of it. But if ever he would play a role of a politician then that should be of Bihar’s CM, Nitish Kumar. I think he is the perfect fit for Nitish’s role.
