Prakash Jha, known to be a perfectionist when he is calling shots as a director. Recently during the shoot of his forthcoming movie SATYAGRAHA, the acclaimed director used the water cannon on his own cast members including the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. It was an agitation scene where the cast was taking on authorities.

In any real life angry protests – the situation is tried to be controlled by the authorities by using the water cannon. Prakash Jha wanted to replicate the scene and make it look convincing. He himself wielded the water cannon on his own cast who were sporting and dedicated enough to withstand the huge water pressure coming out of their director’s cannon. This scene is one of the most realistic scenes in the movie that will remind anyone of an actual protest rally. Only Prakash Jha could make this scene so realistic. Prakash Jha – the perfectionist!
