Ram Gopal Varma revealed the cast of Sarkar 3 on Monday, and the cast member who caught Twitterati attention seems to be Yami Gautam with her high-voltage image makeover.
Yami, best known for her romantic roles in Vicky Donor and Sanam Re, is seen striking gritty poses in the film’s early photos Varma released on social media.
The extreme close-up snapshots focus on her angry gaze and intense expressions. In various shots, she is seen nursing a drink and pointing a gun at the camera, underlining the fact that she is ready for hard action this time.
“Yami Gautam will be playing the role of Annu Karkare in the film… (she) plays a character who wants to take revenge on Sarkar for killing her father,” Varma tweeted along with the pictures.
The filmmaker, on his account @RGVzoomin also familiarised fans with other fresh actors who will join Amitabh Bachchan’s Subhash Nagre in the third film of the series.
While Abhishek Bachchan’s character was killed off in Sarkar Raj, second film in the series, the other protagonist of the earlier film essayed by Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan is missing from Sarkar 3. Varma said this was necessary because the new film is set in another time and situation.
“Jackie (Shroff) plays one of the main antagonists, referred to as Sir, in Sarkar 3,” revealed Varma, along with the fact that Manoj Bajpayee, Amit Sadh, Ronit Roy, Rohini Hattangadi and Bharat Dabholkar would comprise the prop cast.
“Manoj Bajpayee my old enemy in Sarkar 3,” joked @RGVzoomin. He described Bajpayee’s role of Govind Deshpande is “a very cranky and slightly violent version of (Arvind) Kejriwal”.
Amit Sadh is cast in the role of cheeku, KK’s son from the first film who has now grown up. Varma described him as an ‘arrogant and volatile character’
