Nana Patekar as Lord Krishna

‘Rajniti’ the coming directional venture of the director Prakash Jha, where the Indian politics have been shown from the chapters of ‘Mahabharata’. Prakash Jha in an interview said that "Ajay Devgan will play a modern day Karna. And, believe it or not, Nana Patekar, who was fantastic as the corrupt politician in 'Apaharan', has been cast as Lord Krishna".

Also in the cast Vivek Oberoi and Manoj Bajpai are there. "These are actors I've not worked with before. I'm looking forward to directing them.

"Ajay and Nana are old friends. We share a fantastic comfort level."

"Likewise Nana, who was so stunning as a wily politician in 'Apaharan', will I'm sure be equally adept at playing Krishna in my 'Rajniti'," said Jha, who has the politically charged film "GangaaJal" to his credit.

Now the question is that who would play for ‘Arjun’? The character, as conceived by Jha, modernises the mythological elements from the 'Mahabharata'.

Jha is thinking of roping in an upcoming superstar, who's currently being toasted as the most exciting actor since Shah Rukh Khan, to play the role. However, he didn't disclose the name. For that Jha said "Yes, I've an ideal actor in mind for the role of Arjun."

This is not the first contemporary attempt on ‘Mahabharata’. Once the famous director Shyam Benegal also attempted to incorporate elements from the epic into contemporary entrepreneurship in the film ‘Kalyug’.

I’m a big fan of Nana Patekar, his acting skill is amazing. One another actor Ranbir Kapoor is playing a vital role in the movie ‘Rajniti’. He will be playing his favourite political figure, Rajiv Gandhi’s role which was his dream character.
