- Mumbai, July 26 (IANS) Filmmaker Prakash Jha says he does not intend to motivate people to bring about any social change after watching his film "Satyagraha". However, if that happens, it will be a bonus.

"Apart from that, whatever they take away from the film, is a bonus for me," he added.
Jha has already clarified that the film is not based on social activist Anna Hazare's movement.
"Satyagraha" also features Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal among others. The film is slated for release Aug 30.
