Anna Hazare’s fast until death at the Ram Leela Ground in Delhi had shaken up the country, people from all the walks of the country were trying to reach out to Anna.

Prasoon Joshi

Some were going to meet him, while others were writing poems on him and one such man is Prasoon Joshi. He wrote a poem called Mashaal which was about the awakening of common public. If sources are to be believed, his verses are now going to be used in a song for Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha.

Prasoon Joshi's poem

Sources from the sets inform us, “Director Prakash Jha was apparently so moved by the poetry that he immediately bought the rights from Prasoon.”

The film already has Indian Ocean and Salim Sulaiman composing one -- one track each for the film. Though it is yet to be decided as to who will compose for Prasoon’s work.
