New Delhi: Mega star Amitabh Bachchan will be seen doing a cameo in Ram Gopal Varma`s upcoming film `Department`.

The film, which was earlier offered to Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role, will now see actor Rana Daggubati instead beacuse of date issues with junior Bachchan.

"Ram Gopal Varma`s Department - where I have agreed to do a friendly appearance - begins next week and that should come as a somewhat better proposition for me," Amitabh wrote on his blog.

The two have worked together before in movies `Sarkar`, `Sarkar Raj` and `Rann`. Amitabh will be seen playing a gangster-turned-politician in the film.

The cast of the film also includes Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Nasseruddin Shah and Anjana Sukhani.
