`Raajneeti` is much more than politics: Katrina Kaif
Mumbai: Actress Katrina Kaif has said that her upcoming flick ``Raajneeti`` is much more than politics, and despite it not being a serious film, it is a crucial topic.
"The story in this film is not just what you see in posters or in promos. You have seen a lot of (these), obviously you have seen it as a political film, but there is a very interesting story behind it. There is a personal story as well, there is romance in the film, there is jealousy, there is bitterness, there is betrayal," said Katrina Kaif.
"It is not a serious film, it is about a serious topic, but it is very entertaining film in the content. Otherwise, you guys all know me well enough to know that I wouldn``t do a film, which is not entertaining. This is entertainment of a different sort," she added.
Contrary to speculations that her character in the film was inspired by the Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Kaif said that she had watched the election campaign videos of Gandhi`s daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for a first hand know-how on right looks and the body language.
"That is one of the persons whom I have seen, I did particularly like her (Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, daughter of ruling Congress party president Sonia Gandhi) way of talking and the way she talks in public and because we are not basing my character on anybody living or dead," said Katrina Kaif.
"I think I had freedom and Prakash Jha also gave me that freedom to maybe just see somebody I like and try develop a character to that," she added.
Kaif launched the music album of the film along with actor Ranbir Kapoor and Director Prakash Jha here on Tuesday.
Talking about the music of the film, actor Ranbir Kapoor mentioned that Jha has roped in some renowned music composers for the film, and added that music would add to the layers of ``Rajneeti``.
"Rajneeti is a family-political thriller and I think the music just helps to be more engaging to the audience, but don``t expect us to be singing songs or doing anything," said Ranbir Kapoor.
Director Prakash Jha said the film is the story of power-seekers, people who continuously seek power like power in personal life, power in professional life and in political standing.
Fifty-eight year old Prakash Jha returns to the silver screen this June with ``Rajneeti``, a big-budget political thriller that has a multitude of stars such as Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgan and Nana Patekar.
The flick has been shot in Bhopal is expected to hit the theaters on June 4, 2010.
