If sources are to be believed, the Ugly actor Rahul Bhat would be playing a character very similar to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor. Says a source close to the project, "The character is that of a young Pakistani politician from a powerful political family. Rahul Bhat has been asked to model his looks and clothes on Bilawal." While the actor refrained from comment a source in-the-know informs, "Rahul's character is named Bilaal and he is very much like Bilawal. He is paired opposite Katrina Kaif."
