Anna Hazare, whose anti-corruption movement received plenty of support from Bollywood stars, seems to be returning the favour. Hazare, who came into the limelight after leading the Jan Lokpal movement late last year, watched Rumi Jaffery’s Gali Gali Chor Hai along with scores of villagers at Ralegan Siddhi village in Maharastra, India, on January 24 night.
The film, which portrays a common man’s hopes to see a corruption-free India, is set to release on February 3, 2012. On the occasion Hazare was accompanied by producer Nitin Manmohan, director Rumi Jaffery and star cast of the film – Akshaye Khanna, Shriya Saran, Mugdha Godse and Anu Kapoor.
The social worker praised the cast for the effort and appreciated the film. “It supports my message and movement. Every youth, every child, all age people in India should watch this film as it motivates the depth of being a common man and it motivates every individual to be a good citizen and have a corrupt free country. This Republic season every Indian should be corrupt free from within first and then work towards fighting corruption,” said Anna Hazare.
Producer Nitin Manmohan said , “I was thrilled to see Anna’s reactions watching my film. Two thousand villagers stood up and clapped and that was my reward.”
Director Rumi Jaffery called the occasion as a proud moment for him. “I was sitting next to Anna and every gesture and expression of his was making me feel happy,” Jaffery added.
