`Aarakshan` row: Will follow law, says Bachchan

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, whose upcoming film `Aarakshan` has sparked off a controversy even before the release, today said the producers would follow the law.

Directed by Prakash Jha, `Aarakshan` deals with the issue of caste-based reservations. Some political leaders, including NCP heavyweight and Maharashtra cabinet minister Chhagan Bhujbal, have taken exception to its alleged `anti- reservations` stand.

"I respect them...Whatever their emotions are I respect all of them. Only Prakash Jha can comment...answer this. We will abide by law and act in accordance with law, as per the Constitution," Bachchan told reporters here on the sidelines of a promotional event of `Kaun Banega Crorepati` game-show.

The film, starring Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik Babbar, is set to hit cinema houses on August 12.

The fifth season of the KBC, hosted by Bachchan, will start from August 15 on Sony Entertainment Channel.
