A filmmaker who is also socially and politically conscious, Prakash Jha is indeed an exception when compared to dozens of fly by night operators. Starting off with a feel good HIP HIP HURRAY (1984), he has gained maximum recognition through hard hitting films like RAAJNEETI, APAHARAN, GANGAAJAL, BANDISH and DAMUL.

With Jha pretty much creating a position for himself where he is making socially relevant films while adding just the right ingredients in to make them commercially viable as well, one wonders whether AARAKSHAN is yet another explosive drama in the offing?

'Well, this is something for you to make a judgment upon,' smiles Jha, '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. 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.'

Come 12th August and it would be seen how commercially viable AARAKSHAN turns out to be once it sees a global release for itself. Produced by Firoz Nadiadwala, AARAKSHAN boasts of a powerful cast comprising of Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Deepika Padukone and Prateik Babbar.
