Satyagraha reflects the uprising of the middle class against a corrupt and unjust system that leaves it with no recourse but to form a spontaneous movement to challenge the status quo. It is the story of a dynamic and ambitious young man who is poised to take the elevator of corporate success when a personal tragedy exposes him to the shocking consequences of corruption in this country. Joining hands with an idealistic old man, he ignites a people’s protest that soon escalates into a massive movement with a national resonance, battling politicians determined to crush and discredit him. However, when people’s raw and unbridled anger is unleashed, the unintended penalty could be horrifying by itself.

Kareena will start shooting for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, which will reportedly see the actress channel veteran CNN Chief International Correspondent and journalist Christiane Amanpour in her role as an international television correspondent. Kareena will be travelling to Dubai with her stylist to pick up some offbeat and chic attire that completes her look of an international journalist.The film is at the scripting stage and the final outline of Kareena's character is still being decided," a source from the unit of Satyagraha said. Jha has visualised Kareena's role as that of a reporter who keeps a tab on the entire movement and reports at the international level. The director is reportedly influenced by the huge fan following that Amanpour, famous for her reportage from war zones, enjoys. The film, where Amitabh Bachchan is apparently playing social activist Anna Hazare, will be shot mainly in Bhopal and New Delhi. The state-of-the-art news studio set has been built in Bhopal as it offers more space. Ralegan Siddhi(village of Anna Hazare), a small village in Maharashtra with a population of roughly 2,500 people,will serve as one of their main shoot locations. Amitabh Bachchan would be seen playing a man who is a firm believer of truth a la new age Gandhi while Ajay plays an ambitious entrepreneur who represents the modern India shining philosophy. Manoj Bajpai plays the role of a wily politician who uses every means to break the system. The shooting of Satyagraha started in February 2013 in Bhopal.
