New Delhi: Actor Zakir Hussain, who plays a politician in the recently released film 'Revolver Rani', is gearing up to work with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a new TV show.

The actor will have a prominent role in the fictional show which will be directed by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who has made films like 'Gulal', 'Black Friday' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur'.

"I am currently preparing for the television show which also stars Amitabh Bachchan," Hussain told PTI.

The actor has starred in movies like 'Sarkar', 'Johnny Gaddaar' and the critically acclaimed 'Paan Singh Tomar'.

When asked about his role of an opportunistic politician in 'Revolver Rani' that stars Kangana Ranaut in the lead, Hussain said he was confident that his role would be received well by the audience despite being negative.

The movie which was released last Friday also stars Piyush Mishra and Vir Das.

"I firmly believe that audience will like and appreciate my role despite it being negative. I play an opportunistic politician in the film, who does not care about morality. The story reminds one about the the kind of politics taking place in a small town," Hussain said.

Born in Meerut, the actor received his education in Delhi. After graduating from National School of Drama in 1993, Hussain headed to Bombay to fulfill his acting dream. He began his acting journey in the industry with TV shows 'Firdaus', 'Kitty Party' and 'Gaatha'. But it was only in 2004 that he made his Bollywood debut with Sriram Raghavan's 'Ek Hasina Thi'.

Hussain's performance in his debut film earned him a place in Ram Gopal Varma's much talked about thriller 'Sarkar' for which he received rave reviews. He has since starred in several of Varma's films.
