MUMBAI: Filmmaker Prakash Jha is appalled by reports that his film Satsang would be an expose on godmen with special focus on Asaram Bapu.
Says Prakash, “I am not making any film on Asaram Bapu. I don’t know why this whole thing started, and who started it. I think it’s in very bad taste to launch a film just because there’s a juicy controversy around. And Satsang is not about self-styled holy-men.”
While Prakash chooses to go mum after this outburst, a source close to him reveals that Prakash Jha is not making Satsang next.
Says the source, “Prakash wants to move away from his trademark topical cinema and do a film that would be completely unexpected. In fact Prakash is planning to do an intense love story next.”
The director had directed a love story Dil Kya Kare with Akay Devgn and Kajol. But the film bombed.
It seems that Prakash wants to “get it right” this time.
