Politician Amar Singh is known for hogging the headlines and Dimple Kapadia, for her evergreen beauty.

Together they make quite an unlikely pair in director Umar Karikad's Malayalam film Bombay Mittayi. Shooting is curently underway in Kochi.

"We had several names in our list including Nana Patekar but it was one of my journalist friends from Delhi who suggested Amar Singh's name. We went to him with the script and he agreed to spare six days for the shooting and also recommended Dimple Kapadia for the role of his wife," says producer U Pradeep about how he landed the casting coup of sorts.

Amar Singh is playing the role of a celebrated singer, Mallika Mansoor from Malabar who finds success in Mumbai.

"I agreed to spare some days as I liked the script and some of the friends in the media came to me with this suggestion," says the politician who was recently in news when he had cut off ties with Mulayam Singh Yadav's Samajwadi Party.

Dimple Kapadia plays his wife Noora Banu, a dancer. "It was at Amar Singh's behest that I agreed to do my first film in Malayalam," she says.
