While everyone is anticipating for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, the film's crew launched a book about this forthcoming movie on Tuesday, August 27.The book is titled 'Satyagraha: The Story Behind the Revolution'. This book written by Pooja Verma traces the months of hard work, fun on the sets, costume crises, art direction accidents and how a team of people came together to tell a story of a revolution.
The director was seen along with Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpayee at the book launch. Ajay Devgn and megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who play key parts in Satyagraha gave the event a miss.
The director is quite happy with the timing of the book's launch. "We are happy that the book comes around the release of the film. It really chronicles the whole effort put in by everyone - cast, crew and members, telling readers about the months of hard work, tribulations and grueling work we have put into it, and how," Jha said at the event.
"The book has designed in the style of social media. Social media forms a very intrinsic part of our movie as it has become new language of young people in India," he added.
