Jha, known for highlighting socio-political incidents through his movies like Damul, Bandish, Gangaajal, Apaharan and Raajneeti, is now bracing himself for controversies as the film hits theatres during the Independence Day weekend.
With the success of Raajneeti, Jha seems to have found a way to make his hard-hitting films commercially viable. The director says he finds real-life incidents more intriguing than a typical Bollywood potboiler.
"My attempt is to pick a story which is relevant enough to be told through a visual medium to a wider audience. In real life stories there is such tremendous amount of drama and conflict. Also the way our society is moving ahead comes with its own criticalities. These are the real people that we deal with so I am bound to pick references from them."
: says Jha, "My endeavour is to weave it all into my stores and come up with a film that is not just good on paper but is also engaging enough to be liked by people so that it becomes commercially viable."
Aarakshan is slated for a global release on August 12. Produced by Firoz Nadiadwala, Aarakshan boasts of a powerful cast comprising of Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Deepika Padukone and Prateik Babbar.
Aarakshan is the story of Prabhakar Anand (Amitabh Bachchan), the legendary idealistic principal of a college that he has single-handedly turned into the state's best. It is the story of his loyal disciple, Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan) who will do anything for his Sir. Of Deepak's love for Prabhakar's daughter, Poorbi (Deepika Padukone), of his friendship with Sushant (Prateik). It is the story of their love, their lively friendship, their zest for life, and of their dreams for the future.
Centered on one of the most controversial issues of recent years, with the Supreme Court's order on reservations, the story suddenly becomes a rollercoaster ride of high drama, conflict, and rebellion, which tests their love and friendship for one another, and their loyalty to Prabhakar Anand.
