Did you know that BJP Union Minister General VK Singh made a cameo in a Bollywood film once?

According to video clip uploaded by one Aarya Kranti on YouTube, you can clearly see General Singh, a retired four star general of the Indian Army, in a scene from the critically-acclaimed film Prahaar: The Final Attack (1991), starring Nana Patekar, Madhuri Dixit, and Dimple Kapadia.

The film, which revolves around a strict army officer (Patekar) and his crusade to find and punish the perpetrators of a gang of criminals who killed one of his officers, showcases a scene where Patekar is discussing an intricate plan to capture a group of kidnappers.

While the scene majorly revolves around an army chief giving instructions to Patekar, Singh is shown sitting at the table, keenly listening to the conversation.

At one point of time, the actor playing senior army officer even says, "...Humein uss jagah ki kuch slides mili hain. Colonel VK Singh will explain it to you." (We have some slides of the area. Colonel VK Singh will explain it to you).

According to an article in Firstpost, Singh explained his cameo by saying, "They were shooting the film in the centre and wanted a real officer to for a scene."

Singh had recently been in the eye of the storm regarding his remarks about the death of two Dalit children as a consequence of intercaste violence in Haryana. He had said that the government should not be held responsible if "someone threw stones at a dog," -- a statement that had created huge controversy and social media outrage.
