A lookalike of politician Amar Singh will be seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia's forthcoming directorial venture 'Bullett Raja'.

The film's plot revolves around the nexus between politicians, industrialists and police.

"Yes, we realised that this character who plays the role of a politician in the film looks like Amar Singh, but the role is not inspired by Singh's life," Dhulia said.

While conducting auditions, the makers found artiste Gyaneshwar Mishra from Lucknow who looked like former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh.

"Since it was the role of a politician, we thought it would be interesting to cast him as anyone who sees him is reminded of Amar Singh, even though his character in the film has nothing to do with him," Dhulia said.

The film stars Sonakshi Sinha and Saif Ali Khan in the lead, besides Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Ravi Kissen and Chunky Pandey. It releases on November 29.
