Vivek Agnihotri, whose next film BUDDHA IN A TRAFFIC JAM is based on corruption & revolution, was quite shocked when instances from his script have started coming true and especially since his movie is already completed shooting.



On asking Vivek about this, he mentioned, 'My parents were freedom fighters and my father died last year as last surviving freedom fighter. He got state funeral on his death and I was standing there while 21 gun shots were fired and I said to myself 'this is how one must die... living for your country, society, system...' . I had worked with Vinoba Bhave who said 'Never let anything corrupt you and you will find the meaning of your life'. For last two years I have been traveling all across India talking, writing against corruption. It's not a sheer coincidence that I wrote a script about revolution in dictatorship-infested states (Egypt) and it happened couple of months later. Last month I shot a scene with Anupam Kher for my film BUDDHA IN A TRAFFIC JAM where he dreams of a day when youth of India is marching in all cities of India demanding eradication of corruption and India rises to a new corruption-free morning and here we are.... . It can't be a sheer coincidence.'

Well, as they say, reality is stranger than fiction.
