Patna: RJD President Lalu Prasad on Friday said he was no less an actor than any silver screen star and would like to play himself if a film was made on his life.
“Hum kisi star actor se kum hai kya (Am I a less actor than any other famed star?). If any film is made on my life, I would like to play the lead role,” Mr Prasad told PTI.
The RJD chief had on Thursday night met film actor Irrfan who was in Patna to promote his upcoming movie ‘Madaari’.
Mr Prasad said he had told Irrfan that he would like to play the lead role in any movie made on his life and selection of a heroine would be his (Irrfan’s) responsibility.
Mr Prasad had earlier acted in a film titled ‘Padmashree Laloo Prasad Yadav’ featuring Suniel Shetty. The RJD chief said he was a movie buff during his school and college days and legendary actor Dilip Kumar was his favourite.
He also showered praise on heroines of yesteryear like Vyjayanthimala and Hema Malini.
Among the comic actors, he said Johny Walker was the best as he could trigger instant laughs through his act.
