Meanwhile, PTI quoted the Special 26 actor saying, "I felt that it is a very powerful story of modern India’s political decade and I’m getting a chance to be a part of it as an actor. I am someone who has always reinvented himself as an actor. I have done 515 films, there are not even as many political parties. If I have to support a party I can do it on any platform. I will not try to make a film for that."
