By A.Kameshwari

New Delhi, Feb 18 (ANI): Director Abhishek Sharma did not have any plans to make sequel of his 2010 film ‘Tere Bin Laden’, but now after five years he planned to make a sequel which is unlike any other sequels made in Bollywood history.

However, this upcoming film, ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’, which is a spin-off of the prequel, required a look-alike of US President Barack Obama.

In an exclusive interaction with ANI, the director spoke about how he found the look-alike of Obama, “I was searching for an Obama who could be funny, who could speak like Obama, but also has something unique and original about him.”

He added that he saw Iman Crosson, who is very well known and famous as Alphacat on Youtube, “I saw him dressed like Obama, while he was rapping, which was really funny. He is so good at his job that he was invited by President Barack Obama to perform at the White House. I thought he is perfect for the role in the film and he was kind enough to agree to do the film.”

Abhishek further said that movies like `Tere Bin Laden’ satisfies his ‘conspiracy theorist’ self and he would always make movies which not only entertain the crowd but also raise some questions about things happening in the world.

‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive’ is a comedy film which stars Manish Paul, Pradhuman Singh and Sikander Kher in lead roles.

The film is scheduled to hit the screens on February 26. (ANI)
