Anna Unplugged

FullSizeRender - CopyActor-director Shashank Udapurkar, producer Manindar Jain and actress Tanishaa Mukerji unveiled the poster of their film Anna. Also present at the event was Anna Hazare on whom this film is based. Here’s what the team had to say about their upcoming film:

Manindar Jain On Anna

When it was decided to make a film on Annaji, I agreed in less than a minute. Shashank came to me with the script after which I immediately went to meet Anna Hazare. When I saw his down to earth life style, I was further inspired and decided to make a film that will inspire the youth of our country.

Shashank Udapurkar On The Film

I have been thinking of making a film on Anna Hazare since three and a half years. I saw Anna Hazare at the Ramleela maidan where I heard his thoughts and then I decided to make a film based on him. Initially, I was a little scared to approach Annaji as he prefers to stay away from the glamour world. I later convinced him saying that this film will inspire the people and he agreed ki yeh film samaaj ke fayde ke liye hogi.

Anna Hazare On The Film

I have not seen the entire film and I have no idea if Arvind Kejriwal has been shown in this film. This movie will send out a message not just to Indians but also to people all over the world. There is a scene in this movie about my childhood when I lied to the teacher in school and how I had to face the consequences, so Udapurkarji has shown my entire life story in this film. The story involves everything about my life, right from my childhood to now. This movie will inspire the socialists and also the people. This film is not anybody’s imagination; it is practical and full of real incidents. The director has struggled a lot to shoot the film as he went to each and every place where I resided over the years. He went to the Himalayas where he shot in -15 degrees Celsius where I resided for seven years. Udapurkarji wrote several drafts and it took him two years to finalise the script

Tanishaa Mukerji On Her Role

I am playing a journalist in this film. I was not influenced by any particular person but I did observe many journalists to play the role correctly.
