Mumbai: The stand up comics are already mourning George W Bush's departure, and now Bollywood too has its final word on the outgoing American President. A film titled The President Is Coming, based on a play and produced by Ramesh Sippy is ready to hit theatres at the end of this month.

This out of the box comedy breaks the rules in Bollywood. A digital film, this one directed by Kunal Roy Kapoor and produced by Ramesh Sippy Entertainment, has no big stars and retains the cast of the play on which it is based.

"It gives young writers a hope that when they think of different ideas, they can actually make it into a film," says producer Ramesh Sippy.

"I am actually happy that sippy films is doing commercial films and small budeget documentaries also," says Konkona Sen Sharma.

The film deals with 10 contestants who line up for a chance to shake hands with President George W Bush with its comic take on India Shining, and many other sacred cows (shot of a buffalo), shot in mock documentary style, it's a worthy send off to the outgoing President known for his unique contribution to the English language.

So here's the last chance to hear those classic lines as The President is Coming releases in theatres on 28 November.
