'Satyagraha' to begin with Gandhi's quote?
IANS [ Wed, May 15, 2013 ]
- Mumbai, May 15 (IANS) Filmmaker Prakash Jha's political drama "Satyagraha", said to be about the uprising of the middle-class against a corrupt system, 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 as they are still toying with the idea.
If reports are to believed and if Jha zeroes in on the idea, 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 just flash it on the screen.
Releasing Aug 15, Jha's "Satyagraha" story will see a host of other actors - Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee and Amrita Rao - playing important roles.
