Prakash Jha Productions and the charitable organization founded by Prakash Jha, Anubhooti have come together to raise funds for building a multi-specialty hospital - Anubhooti Medical Care in the northern part of Bihar, India - a region which significantly lacks competent health care.

To support this initiative, Mr. Prakash Jha proposes to hold worldwide premieres of his latest, highly anticipated film RAAJNEETI in conjunction with benefit dinners in several cities across the world including New York City, LA, and San Francisco, USA; Toronto, Canada; London, United Kingdom; Singapore City, Singapore; Hong Kong, China; Durban, South Africa; Dubai, UAE; Muscat, Sultanate of Oman; Mumbai and Delhi, India.

Founded in 1991, Anubhooti has worked diligently to support cultural development, flood survivors, and health care. In 2008, the NGO raised several crore rupees for Punarwaas - Flood Relief Mission, a project for relief and rehabilitation for people who were ravaged by the 2008 floods of the river Kosi. Now, Anubhooti envisions building a multi-functional hospital to provide quality healthcare to needy people.

The last few years have seen a significant improvement in governance and basic facilities in Bihar, but a lot remains to be done.

Jha is of the view, "If there is something we can do to improve the lives of the needy, let's not hesitate. Let's just go ahead and do it." He believes that everybody can do their bit to help people less privileged than themselves.

The National Award winning and critically acclaimed producer-director Prakash Jha has made films like DAMUL, GANGAAJAL, MRITYUDAND, and APAHARAN in order to bring social realities to public attention. As the Founder - Chairperson of Anubhooti, he has also led a group of social cultural activists to adopt hospitals and improve healthcare, use cultural media for social development and to leverage aid for efficient relief services to victims of natural disasters. This time, his objective is to create a healthcare facility that would provide affordable and quality healthcare to needy people. "Healthcare is a right and we should do whatever that can be done to ensure that all people have access to it," says Jha.

Jha envisions using the premieres of his latest film, RAAJNEETI, to raise funds for this hospital. The film RAAJNEETI is a study of electoral politics in the world's largest democratic nation- India. RAAJNEETI boasts of a star cast that includes renowned actors such as Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai, and Naseeruddin Shah - all of whom wholeheartedly support Anubhooti's efforts. Jha hopes to leverage the responses to the film in a manner that will go beyond glamour and entertainment. He will release the film across several cities globally in conjunction with benefit dinners for the sole purpose of raising funds for this commendable cause.

The cast of RAAJNEETI has also joined hands with maverick filmmaker Prakash Jha to support Anubhooti:

Katrina Kaif says - "The RAAJNEETI cast and crew has decided to set up Anubhooti Medical Care - a multi functional hospital in North Bihar. We will be organising several premieres of Raajneeti, across the world around 28th May 2010 to raise funds for building the hospital. I will be attending these premiers"

Ajay Devgn says - "Please help us build Anubhooti Medical Care - a multifunctional hospital in North Bihar"

Ranbir Kapoor says- "Let us do our bit to improve medical care services in North Bihar"
