Prakash Jha is all set to start his new venture, Satyagrah, which happens to be a political drama. As all his films are soaked in Bihar, this one is anticipated to not be an exception. Prakash began all this with ‘Damul’ that bagged National Award. And after Hip Hip Hurray and Mrityudand, he moved on to multi star cast like Gangaajal, Apaharan to Raajneeti and Aarakshan.
Prakash’s films have always generated much buzz around, much ahead of their releases. For instance his latest hit during Aarakshan, The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) demanded that the film be screened to them before release to determine if the content was appropriate. Next, the Uttar Pradesh Government cancelled permissions to conduct promotions at a college in Lucknow.
Even Mrityudand, and Rajneeti were caught in controversies. Prakash Jha never compromises on the quality part of his films. Though they are dragged in controversies, yet he doesn’t give up. He has bridged the gap between commercial and parallel cinemas to some extent. He has brilliantly taken up the mainstream cinema and is ruling it.
Even his, own life is full of events that could make a film’s script. He was studying B.Sc in Delhi University and left it midway to come to JJ School of Arts in Bombay and become a painter. He was preparing to attend his first lecture when he chanced upon the shooting of Rekha’s Dharmatma on the street somewhere and got hooked to the medium. He soon left for Pune and enrolled for an editing course. After two years he got back to Mumbai full of ideas.
Prakash is known for maintaining relationships in this B town. Deepti Naval and Ajay Devgan are the lucky ones who are in the wish list of Prakash. Ajay and Amitabh are doing Satyagrah of Prakash.
