Big B and Prakash Jha team up again for Satyagraha
This was something that was waiting to happen. We are indeed talking about the phenomenal rise of Anna Hazare's campaign, a 'subject' that will definitely make an immensely interesting material for the silver screen! And it's none other than director Prakash Jha who is at the helm of things. Looking at the track record of his films so far, plus the success of the recently released Aarakshan, Prakash Jha has become someone who can aptly be trusted to do full justice to topical issues.
In tune with the 'Anna wave', Prakash Jha is now all set to make his next titled Satyagraha, which will address the ethos of a peaceful mass protest against corruption. Talking about the film, Jha said that while the film deals with the concept of peaceful protest, the starcast is yet to be finalized. Needless to say, the one finalized to play the title role is none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Reports also have it that Big B's character in the film will have plenty of elements of Anna Hazare, but the film will make a marked departure from the ideology of an autonomous movement.
Satyagraha is scheduled to go on floors in January 2012.
