The show is a political satire, set in contemporary India's corridors of power. He will play a washed up, narcissistic Bollywood actor who is unwittingly appointed as a placeholder culture minister, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite a crippling bureaucracy, political gaffes, and a team of misfits, he yearns to be loved by the masses once again.
The series is created by Gursimran Khamba, one of the founding members of well-known Indian comedy collective AIB.
Talking about the project, Irrfan said, "It will be a great experience to be working on this show, which will be very topical and funny and will release globally on Amazon Prime Video."
