So far, the association between Indian indie bands and Bollywood filmmakers has been quite sporadic, but Prakash Jha is looking to change that.
The director has signed on popular band 'Indian Ocean' to sing a song for his upcoming film, SATYAGRAHA. The film, which he is co-producing with UTV Motion Pictures, will also feature the band members Susmit Sen, Rahul Ram and Amit Kilam.

Indian Ocean has composed a track for the film and the members of the band will also be part of the movie, as Prakash wants them to feature in it. The band will be shown belting out a youth anthem that motivates characters in the film to stand up for their rights at a crucial juncture in the story. The band was very excited to have composed the track for Prakash's film.

Prakash Jha confirms the news, saying, "It is true that I have roped in Indian Ocean to compose one of the tracks in SATYAGRAHA. It is a fantastic band with a superb fan following among the youth, so who else but them to create an anthem for the youth to stand up for what is right, fight against corruption and to stand up for democracy? They have composed a brilliant track that will move us all. It is too early to share any further details."
Indian Ocean has flown down to Bhopal for a three-day shooting schedule with the cast that includes Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpai. Earlier, Indian Ocean had composed tracks for Aamir Khan's PEEPLI LIVE (2010).
