Actor deepak dobriyal

Actor Deepak Dobriyal has been cast in a role closely modelled on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal in political satire "Lollypop Since 1947".

Deepak will an 'aam aadmi' (common man) who becomes a political force to reckon with.

"I play a salesman who becomes a member of parliament. It's role that every supporter of Kejriwalji would immediately recognize," said the talented actor, who has featured in films like "Omkara", "Gulaal" and "Dabangg 2".

Deepak, who went through a ghastly eye accident last year, says the role required immense preparation especially since it's directed by a member of a political family.

"It's directed by Anirudh Chautala who is the former Haryana chief minister Devi Lal's grandson. The film has a very clear wake-up message for the masses...very close to what Arvind Kejriwalji has attempted to put forward," he said.

Next, Deepak goes into Sooraj Barjatya's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", where the actor says he has a substantial role.

"Salman Bhai's (Salman Khan) company is lucky for me. I had just a few scenes with him in 'Dabangg 2'. Commuters to this day stop my car at the traffic signal and call out for me with my name 'Gainda bhai' from 'Dabangg 2'."
