UTV New Media, the digital arm of UTV Software Communications Ltd., announced the launch of a voice blogging service for one of the most anticipated films of the year Raajneeti. Bringing the entire cast and crew to interact with their fans, this service will have movie stars upload personalized voice blogs about the film tits-bits and gossip from the sets and from their city visits and more.
Raajneeti is co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Walkwater Media Ltd; and is directed by ten time national award winner Prakash Jha. Scheduled for a June 4th release, Raajneeti stars Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Ajay Devgan, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai and Naseerrudin Shah along with newcomer Sarah. The music of the film has been composed by the Wayne Sharpe and screenplay is by Prakash Jha & Anjum Rajabali.
As the date of release of Prakash Jha’s latest film Raajneeti is coming close, it is being dragged into new controversies. The film has now got into two new controversies one by a Mumbai based social worker and the other by actor-producer-director Kamal R Khan.
a Mumbai based social worker, who may be a big Sonia Gandhi loyalist has sought a ban on the film saying that the central character of the film resembles the Congress president. The concerned person has alleged that the character in the film, which resembles Sonia Gandhi has been portrayed as a negative character.
But, director of Raajneeti Prakash Jha is not disturbed by this charge in any way. Rubbishing such charges, he says, “Let all these self-styled supports of Soniaji come forward to show their loyalty to her. I am not an irresponsible citizen and filmmaker, who would do something so foolish as to portray Soniaji in a bad light. When no one has seen even a single frame of Raajneeti, how can they presume that Katrina’s character has any resemblance to Soniaji? Let Soniaji watch the film and decide for herself.”
Prakash Jha is also upset with Kamal R Khan, who has sent a legal notice to the director of Raajneeti alleging that the rights of the title Raajneeti belong to him. Prakash said he does not feel there is any need for him to address the issue as he would only answer Kamal’s charges in court.
Prakash Jha would be hoping that these new controversies that his latest film Raajneeti has been dragged into do not have any impact on the smooth release of the film.
