As Prakash Jha gets ready with his next film AARAKSHAN, we learn the filmmaker puts this film in higher esteem than his last hit RAAJNEETI.
And Jha has his own good reasons for doing that. According to the reliable sources, "After the success of RAAJNEETI, Prakash Jha's upcoming film AARAKSHAN has generated big interest among the trade circles. Moreover, in Jha's own estimation, AARAKSHAN is a notch above RAAJNEETI since he believes that it has a more focused storyline than his previous film."
AARAKSHAN, which stars Big B, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpai andDeepika Padukone in the lead courted controversy initially when Ajay Devgn, who many think is Prakash Jha's favourite, was not part of the film. But, the filmmaker has denied any friction with Ajay Devgan blaming all such claims as media fantasy.
Jha has also denied that his film is trying to dictate or preach any solutions to the issue of caste system. According to him, "This is just a way to let out the feelings that society has been suppressing for years. The pain is on all the sides. I have tried to understand the reality of it."
AARAKSHAN is scheduled to release in the second week of August but it seems to be grabbing headlines already for all the right reasons so far.
