Indian filmmakers aren’t waiting for Oliver Stone‘s “W” to have a crack at President Bush.
Tamil thesp Kamal Haasan found B.O. success recently with “Dasavatharam” (10 Incarnations), in which he plays 10 roles, including Bush.
Haasan studied the prez’s mannerisms and speech patterns for weeks and was pleased with the result, telling Indian media, “The part where I play George Bush has turned out to be exceptionally good.”
While crix were mixed, auds raved about his take on Bush (as the bad guy, natch) in a scene involving America’s release of biochemical weapons. “Even his voice modulation is near perfect,” wrote one blogger.
Haasan’s not the only one with a Bush take: Impersonator Brent Mendenhall trots out his own Texas drawl in Bollywood terrorism drama “Mission: Istaanbul,” which is set for a fall release.
