The audience must have seen actors playing numerous roles on the screen but the character of a politician is something that always puts them in a different light while leaving a distinct presence on the screen.
A politician is indeed a character that requires a lot of intensity to magnify the power of a public figure. Be it public speeches, the politician walks, or the tough expressions, an actor brings a lot of his expertise onto the screen that speaks a lot about his/her potential as an actor.
