Like ‘Babuji' Alok Nath, Sooraj Barjatya is perceived to be the idol of ‘sanskaar' and is known for his sanskaari movies. However, his recent step has surprised one and all!

Vivek Agnihotri's hard-hitting film BUDDHA IN A TRAFFIC JAM, that was facing some difficulty finding distributors due to its politically-resonating theme, has been bailed out by the Barjatyas. While the makers couldn't be happier, what's taken everyone by surprise is the Barjatyas decision to support the film, considering they are known for their social and family-oriented films which are a far cry from the turmoil of the political system and ideologies that Agnihotri's film represents.

Speaking about how the Barjatyas got involved, Agnihotri says that after the film's ‘historical screening' at Jawaharlal Nehru University recently, he got a call from a friend who said that the Barjatya family was interested in seeing the film at their private studio at Rajshri. “Our film has extreme language and I was like ‘hello, really'. When I screened the film, the entire family was present and I actually apologised to them for the extreme content of the film. But to my surprise, the family is so cinema-savvy that they loved the film.”

“Sooraj (Barjatya) told me how impactful the film is and how his wife was impacted by our teasers and that's when they decided to help the film. Sooraj said he will do whatever he can for the film and the next morning we got a call. They facilitated the distribution for us and in the next half hour I was sitting with one of the senior-most distribution experts, Mr. Ashok Ahuja at Carnival's office. I am so happy to tie up with Carnival and I owe it to the Barjatya family for their support,” concludes Vivek.
