Even before his Chakravyuh
has hit theatres, Prakash Jha is already busy planning his next biggie titled Satyagraha
. For the film that deals with the movement of the middle-class to re-negotiate democracy, Jha has managed a casting coup of sorts getting together Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn,
Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor
and Manoj Bajpayee on board.
While all the above mentioned names have worked with Jha earlier, it's the first time Kareena Kapoor would be working with the veteran filmmaker. Bachchan would be seen playing a man who is a firm believer of truth a la new age Gandhi while Ajay plays an ambitious entrepreneur who represents the modern India shining philosophy. Arjun Rampal plays a social activist who aims to be a politician while Kareena's character is that of a journalist with a strong ideology someone like popular journalist Chirstiane Amanpour of CNN. Bajpayee plays the role of a wily politician who uses every means to break the system.
The film is set to go on floors in January next year.
Prakash Jha, Manoj Bajpayee and Amitabh Bachchan promote Aarakshan in Kolkata.
