Not judging Anna Hazare's movement in Satyagraha: Prakash Jha

Mumbai, PTI | Updated : 23 July 2013, 09:08 AM

Filmmaker Prakash Jha has denied that his upcoming Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Satyagraha" has any resemblance to Anna Hazare's movement against corruption. 

The political thriller stars Bachchan as a social activist, Ajay Devgn as an aspiring politician, Kareena Kapoor as a journalist, Manoj Bajpai as a politician. 

"Anna Hazare's movement mobilised common people. In my film, the movement and its logic is completely different. I'm not trying to be judgemental about Anna Hazare's movement and I don't want anyone to be judgmental about my film," Jha said in a statement. 

"Any suspicion linking with Hazare's movement is uncalled for. But there is nothing I can do about that," he added. 

"Satyagraha", also starring Arjun Rampal and Amrita Rao, releases on August 30.
