Current situations inspired Jha to make 'Satyagraha'
"You must be eagerly waiting for the next film 'Satyagraha'. The whole world is in the line of agitation; people are fed up of corruption, inflation, and mal-administration. Amidst these problems, beautiful stories are coming out. By bonding these stories together I am making 'Satyagraha'. So, I always try to match up to your expectations," the 60-year-old told reporters.
Jha had reached a theatre along with actors Abhay Deol and Anjali Patil to gauge the audience's response to his latest film 'Chakravyuh'. Released on Dusshera, the film talks about the Maoist issue in India and stars Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Esha Gupta and Anjali Patil.
Jha is happy with the kind of response the film is getting.
"The kinds of compliments we are getting are beyond our imagination. Javed Akhtar saab, Shabanaji (Azmi), Shekhar (Kapur), friends, critics, people (are liking the film). I am so touched that every time a show ends, I get a call that 'sir, people are clapping'," he said.
"So, no matter how has our marketing been, I feel the audience will now market it. According to the reports that have come up, people have liked the film, getting emotional and reacting. This is my biggest achievement and I feel this is both - my award and reward," he added.
