Kareena Kapoor Is ready To Wait For Satyagrah
The unprecedented promotional blitzkrieg that Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn undertook during the release of ‘Son Of Sardaar’ in November 2012, has claimed its first casualty. One learns that Prakash Jha’s ambitious political thriller ‘Satyagrah’ which is to feature Ajay as an anti-corruption activist-politician, has now been moved forward by almost a month, from January to February 2013, apparently to accommodate the last shooting spell of Sajid Khan’s ‘Himmatwala’.
That is about to change. For the first time in her career, Kareena Kapoor would be following an elaborate preparation plan for Prakash Jha’s “Satyagraha”.
Now with Himmatwala schedule getting delayed Ajay Devgn has no choice but to complete the earlier film before plunging into Satyagrah, even if that means a delay in starting Prakash’s film. And the person bearing the brunt of Ajay’s absence happens to be style diva Kareena Kapoor. A lot of her dates, which she had secured for Satyagrah, have now gone in vain. Even Amitabh Bachchan is on the same boat.
Says a source close to the project, “Kareena would have to become thoroughly familiar with present day political affairs. And that doesn’t mean just newspaper headlines. Prakash wants her to become sensitized to India’s contemporary politics. Her character is a fiercely militant investigative journalist. For her to look credible Parkash feels the words about present day politics and politicians should not come from the script. They should flow naturally from the actress’ sensitivities as an Indian.”
