Filmmaker Prakash Jha’s upcoming political drama Satyagraha, is likely to have a quote from Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography as its prologue.

“Satyagraha as a concept is based on Mahatma Gandhi and Prakashji is planning to start the film with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography ‘My Experiments With Truth’,” said a source, adding that nothing is finalised yet. The film is reportedly about the uprising of middle-class against a corrupt system.

According to reports, if Jha zeroes in on the idea to have a quote from Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, he may either request Amitabh Bachchan, who plays the lead role in the film and whose character is apparently inspired by social activist Anna Hazare, to give the voiceover for the quote or he may simply flash it on the screen.

Scheduled to release on Independence Day, Satyagraha’s story has a host of actors — Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee and Amrita Rao — playing important characters.
