Now that the election fever is catching up, political satires have become all the more relevant in the film industry, too.

A film, currently being shot in Gurgaon, Haryana, is about a ­middle class sales person who becomes a political activist.

Producer Manju Amit Bansal, who turns director with this film, says, "It’s a political satire and it will appeal to people, wake them up to change the system."

Interestingly, the film has already had its share of controversies. Reportedly, the project was supposed to be directed by Anirudh Chautala, who is the former Haryana chief minister Devi Lal’s grandson.

However, he backed out and Manju Bansal decided to helm the film herself.
