Prakash Jha has roped in Amrita Rao for “Satyagraha” and the actress is extremely joyous as most of her scenes are with none other than Amitabh Bachchan, whose role in the film is reportedly modelled on activist Anna Hazare.
“We are shooting in Bhopal and I am feeling so blessed that all my scenes in ‘Satyagraha’ are with Amitabh Bachchan. In fact, I can say 99 percent of my scenes are with him. It’s like a dream come true for me,” Amrita told IANS.
After “Main Hoon Na” and “Vivah”, the 31-year-old’s last memorable role was in 2008 “Welcome to Sajjanpur”. After that, most of her films, like “Shortkut – The Con Is On”, bombed at the box office.
Her role in “Satyagraha” could be a turning point in her career, but she didn’t seem keen to reveal anything about it and said: “I am not allowed to talk much about the film and about the role. All I can say is that it’s a fantastic role and we have shot around 10 days over here and now have 55 more days to go.”
“Satyagraha” also features Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee besides Kareena Kapoor, who plays a journalist in it. – IANS
