The famous bhajan will be shot on Amitabh Bachchan who plays a role inspired by Anna Hazare in the film
Filmmaker Prakash Jha, who is shooting his film Satyagraha, says he will be using Mahatama Gandhi’s song Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram in the film, which will be featured on Amitabh Bachchan, who plays a role inspired by Anna Hazare.
Revealing more about the song, a source close to the team further added, “Prakashji is using the iconic Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram song in Satyagraha. It will be featured on Amitabh Bachchan who plays a role that has been inspired by Anna Hazare.”
Director Prakash Jha confirmed the news, saying, “Yes, we have the song Raghupati Raghav in the film. It comes at a very crucial juncture in Satyagraha in the life of the character that Amitabh Bachchan is playing.”
“Anna is a Gandhian and Raghupati Raghav was one of the most favourite bhajans (devotional songs) of Mahatma Gandhi who even sang it to his followers during the famous Dandi March,” says a source close to Satyagraha production team.
“Amitabh Bachchan’s character is inspired by Gandhi’s philosophies and it is only fitting that Raghupati Raghav primarily features Bachchan along with other cast members of Satyagraha,” he added.
Satyagraha features Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpayee, among others.
