"We have our eyes on 'Satyagraha' no matter what the director says. We know that the film is inspired by the Anna' movement and that Amitabh Bachchan is playing Anna. We just want to ensure that Anna or the movement is not being criticised," said a source.
The trailer of the film urges people to stand up for their rights.
When contacted Jha, he said: "I am not being judgemental about Anna or the movement. 'Satyagraha' is inspired by facts, but it's a fictional take. The film is not about Anna Hazare or his movement. If a direct request from Anna comes to us, we will look into it."
"Satyagraha", which features a host of good actors - from Amitabh, Ajay Devgn and Manoj Bajpayee to Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Amrita Rao - is slated for an Aug 30 release.
