The Raja of Alipura is Raj’s father and by birth he is a real Raja. He is powerful because he also has made it big in Indian politics. In the first part of “Double Happiness” we do not know too much about the Raja. I do not want to spoil the surprise but let me tell you that he is a very strict father and has high expectations of his son. Mainly, like most ambitious men, he wants his son to follow in his foot steps.
If the Raja would be played by a bollywood actor I’d vote for Amitabh Bachchan, one of my all-time fav’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VBlp-jaHGE
