Mumbai: Reports claiming that Prakash Jha`s upcoming film `Satyagraha` is inspired by Anna Hazare`s movement seems to have made the members of the social activist`s team curious who are said to have placed a request to watch the political drama.
"We have our eyes on `Satyagraha` no matter what the director says. We know that the film is inspired by the Anna` movement and that Amitabh Bachchan is playing Anna. We just want to ensure that Anna or the movement is not being criticised," said a source.
The trailer of the film urges people to stand up for their rights.
When contacted Jha, he said: "I am not being judgemental about Anna or the movement. `Satyagraha` is inspired by facts, but it`s a fictional take. The film is not about Anna Hazare or his movement. If a direct request from Anna comes to us, we will look into it."
`Satyagraha`, which features a host of good actors - from Amitabh, Ajay Devgn and Manoj Bajpayee to Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Amrita Rao - is slated for an Aug 30 release.
