Prakash Jha known for making hard hitting films based on current issues is busy with his forthcoming venture Satyagraha. The film which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpayee and Arjun Rampal has however run into trouble.
The reason behind these allegations is that the Bhopal Citizens Forum (BCF) feels that the laying of a tar-road and construction of a makeshift market by the production house at the grounds of the historic 19th century Benazir Palace would damage the historic fabric of the area.
However, on the other hand, the filmmaker states that they have acquired the necessary permissions for the shoot, and are currently in the process of making an affidavit that states the area being used will be restored to its original state post the culmination of the shoot.
The shoot is slated to begin next year on January 26 with 80 per cent of the film being shot there.
