CORRUPTION AND CASTE DISCRIMINATION EXPOSED IN RELIANCE ENTERTAINMENT’S ‘AARAKSHAN’
One of the most controversial and thought-provoking films to emerge from India this year, based on true accounts, releasing in UK and Worldwide on 12th August 2011
The debate and discussion will heat up this summer as Reliance Entertainment’s ‘Aarakshan’, a high voltage, socio-political drama based on one of the most contentious Indian government policies of caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions, releases in cinemas in UK and worldwide on 12th August 2011.
From the makers of ‘Raajneeti’, one of the top grossing Indian films of 2010, and based on real life events, ‘Aarakshan’ is directed by the country’s most fearless and hailed director, Prakash Jha who exposes the corruption and caste discrimination rife in India’s political and educational system.
Flawless and compelling performances are delivered by the Indian film fraternity’s finest acting talent, spearheaded by veteran of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan (Black, Zanjeer, Sholay). Appearing alongside the screen icon are major artists from the industry’s younger generation including the formidable Saif Ali Khan (Dil Chata Hai, Omkara, Kurbaan) beguiling starlet Deepika Padukone (Om Shanti Om, Love Aaj Kal, Housefull) and rising star of the Indian screen, Prateik (Dum Maaro Dum, Dhobi Ghat).
