MUMBAI: Akbar Khan is being considered to play the role of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in a ducu-drama 'From President to Prisoner', based on a book Safar Zindagi Ka by Aziz Burney.

The film, directed by Suresh Kohli, focuses on the last few tears of the then Iraqi President’s fight against US imperialism. According to Khan, Saddam was a hero and had fought the double standards of the US foreign policy.

Meanwhile, nephew Fardeen Khan is trying to resurrect his earlier plan to remake his father Feroz Khan’s Qurbani. A film close to his heart, the remake will be Fardeen’s tribute to his late father.

It has been a while since Fardeen has been trying to set his own production house in motion. But the actor is treading the path of caution as he has plans to roll out 5 to 6 films.
