Satire about Thai PM greenlighted

A satire that pokes fun at the Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his family is set to hit Thai cinemas in September.

The director, Somjai Sukjai, or Der Dok Sadao, planned to make a satire about Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, but ran afoul of the authorities. He remains undaunted and talked about his project in a recent interview.

Somjai's film will star Sayan Muangcharoen, a comedian with Down's Syndrome, as the son of the "prime minister".

Both were featured in the recently reviewed Buppha Ratree.
