Raj Babbar is the latest addition to Tigmanshu Dhulia’s upcoming film starring Saif Ali Khan. He has been cast in the role of a politician who plays mentor to Saif’s character. Considering that he is an actor-turned-politician, he will bring his own touch to the screen persona.
Says a source, “Tigmanshu Dhulia along with producer Rahul Mittra went to meet Raj Babbar to wish him on becoming a grandfather after his daughter Juhi delivered a baby boy. Little did he know that they would also surprise him with an offer to act in their film as well!” Babbar also features in Dhulia’s sequel to his last year’s flick Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster in which he essays Soha Ali Khan’s father. Producer Rahul Mittra says, “We begin shooting in November in Lucknow. He’s a disciplined actor and as he is a MP himself he will add his own touches to the character.”
Baby boy for Juhi
Raj Babbar’s daughter Juhi, who married TV actor Anup Soni last year, gave birth to a baby boy last week. Both the mother and son are doing fine and the parents have apparently named him Emaan.
