Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt on Sunday congratulated Team Anna for its successful campaign against corruption, but said that the Jan Lokpal alone cannot root out corruption from society.

“People came out to support Anna due to their anguish against the government over rising prices and corruption,” Bhatt said. “I’ve congratulated Team Anna, but Jan Lokpal is a flawed document,” he said.

“Anna movement has taught us we should not be passive. Anna has all qualities of a hero. But one can’t bask on his glory with bold headlines and media coverage for long,” he said.
