"I don't want to use American examples, but it's along the lines of House Of Cards, although set within the framework of Indian politics. The plot takes into account various factions like Dalit politics and UP cops and the whole nexus between them," the actor said in a statement.

Saif will play the role of a politician in the show, to be helmed by Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar.

"My character is Chanakya-like, in the guise of a youth leader who comes from a privileged background and aspires to become the prime minister," he added.

Saif is looking forward to the release of Laal Kaptaan which will hit the screens worldwide on 18 October.

His upcoming films include Jawani Jaaneman with Tabu and Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior with Ajay Devgn.
