Though she has been a part of dark cinema through films like ‘Omkara’, ‘Dev’ and ‘Chameli’, working with Prakash Jha in ‘Satyagraha’ will be a whole different experience for actress Kareena Kapoor. She who will be seen playing a journalist in the film in the course of the story takes up politics and goes on to become the prime minister of India. And in order to prepare for her role in the film, the actress has been asked to follow some eminent journalists and female political leaders closely.
For her part as a journalist she has been asked to refer the working style of veteran journalist Christiane Amanpour while for her part as a Indian Prime Minister she will be keenly observing leaders like Indira Gandhi and Benazir Bhutto. This is the first time that Kareena will be working with Prakash Jha and hence both want to make sure that everything goes right for their film.
The film apart from Kareena Kapoor also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee playing the leads. The film inspired from real life incidents is slated to release on 15th August 2013.
