Prakash Jha to shoot next film in Bhopal too

Bhopal: Noted film-maker Prakash Jha, who shot his latest movie `Rajneeti` in the city, plans to shoot his next venture in the Madhya Pradesh capital too.

Shooting of `Aarakshan`, featuring megastar Amitabh Bachchan, will begin by the year-end, Jha told reporters on phone from Mumbai today.

The shoot will be completed in 60-70 days though the schedule is yet to be finalised, he said.

Once the schedule was finalised, the period for which Big B would be required to stay in Bhopal would be known, Jha said.

Bachchan has not yet done a film shoot in Bhopal, the city of his in-laws.

To a question, he said the controversy surrounding `Rajneeti` being based on Congress President Sonia Gandhi`s life has ended. "For me, it is a thing of the past."

The political drama, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Nana Patekar, Ajay Devgn and Manoj Bajpai, among others, is releasing tomorrow.
