Big B speaks about Aarakshan, KBC 5
Lucknow: In his recent blog, Amitabh Bachchan explained why he found the philosophies of his show Kaun Banega Crorepati and his next movie, ‘Aarakshan’ to be very similar.
‘Aarakhshan’, is Prakash Jha’s next release after ‘Rajneeti’ and the movie is facing few issues due to its subject and few of its dialogues. There is a scene in the movie wherein the actor is speaking something about how the minorities aren’t asking for reservation and they just want to be selected by merit instead. This reference has raised many eyebrows and there have also been few protests in Punjab, demanding removal of the lines.
Big B, who plays an important role in the movie, was very expressive in his recent blog. According to him, if they are given an opportunity and the resources, even the less privileged too will prosper and reach great heights. This was proven in the previous season of KBC, wherein the contestants who had come from smaller towns in India fared much better that those who had come from the metro cities.
According to him, the movie shows various sides of this issue. Mr. Bachchan will be promoting this movie on KBC soon, along with Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone who will be sitting in the hot seat and participating in the show.
