Prakash Jha to cast 1,500 Bhopalis in Satyagraha
Filmmaker Prakash Jha's upcoming movie Satyagraha is one of the most-awaited films of the year. The movie has been in the news ever since it was conceptualised, especially for its heavy-weight star cast like Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena and Ajay Devgn.

The latest we hear is that the film Satyagraha will see as many as 1,500 Bhopal residents in the film and director Prakash Jha says a two-month special workshop was held to train them. "Yes, we held workshops for the locals for about two months. These acting workshops were necessary. I'm really happy with how they have been contributing to my Satyagraha. It's fantastic to see their energy and enthusiasm for the film," Jha told the IANS.

As per reports, Kareena Kapoor will be playing the role of a journalist in Satyagraha and she will be seen interviewing Amitabh Bachchan onscreen. Jha has visualised Kareena's role as that of a reporter who keeps a tab on the entire movement and reports at the international level. Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan is playing social activist Anna Hazare in the movie.
