Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav’s elder son and current state Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav will be seen in a movie. Tej Pratap is playing the role of ‘Chief Minister of Bihar’ in the upcoming flick.
The movie “Apharan Udyog” is based on the kidnappings in Bihar in the 1990s. Lalu Prasad Yadav and mother Rabri Devi ruled the state during that period.
“It is a positive role. It’s about taking Bihar out of the darkness. My father Lalu Yadav also worked in a film. Now that I have got a chance I am also doing it,” says the 26-year-old, letting all criticism roll off his back.
“Apharan Udyog” is scheduled to release in August.
Opposition BJP has condemned the move by the state Health Minister to act in film.
According to a report, ex-state health minister Nand Kishore Yadav slammed the move and said, “He (Tej Pratap) can’t even answer questions related to his department in the assembly. We have pointed this out many times. Health is such a crucial department. I was also a health minister and I just had no time. But I guess Tej Pratap Yadav has the backing if his all-powerful father and he can do as he pleases. I just wish he would concentrate more on work.”
