Amrita Rao to share screen with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Satyagraha’
After a long break stunning Bollywood beauty Amrita Rao have got a role that is expected to boost her acting career. She has been signed by Prakash Jha for his much-hyped upcoming venture ‘Satyagraha’. But there is a more joyful thing for Amrita as most of her sequences in the film are with the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan who is reportedly playing anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare in the film.
“We are shooting in Bhopal and I am feeling so blessed that all my scenes in ‘Satyagraha’ are with Amitabh Bachchan. In fact, I can say 99 per cent of my scenes are with him. It’s like a dream come true for me,” Amrita told the reporters.
After “Main Hoon Na” and “Vivah”, the 31-year-old’s last memorable role was in 2008 “Welcome to Sajjanpur”. After that, most of her films, like “Shortkut – The Con Is On”, bombed at the box office.
Her role in the film is expected to turn her career around but she refused to speak anything about the film. She said, “I don’t have the authority to speak much about the film and my role. I can only tell you that I am going to essay a fantastic role for which we have been shooting from about 10 days and there are still 55 days remaining.”
Prakash Jha has also signed Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpey and Kareena Kapoor for the film. Kareena will be seen playing the role of a journalist in ‘Satyagraha’.
