New Bollywood Movie – Rajneeti – Starring Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor

Another star studded new bollywood movie is being released this Friday. The movie is directed by Prakash Jha who is known for making movies on social evils in India. As you can infer from the name, this new bollywood movie is about politics. In a way, it is a new take on the epic Mahabharata. However, there have been rumours that Rajneeti is based on the current leader of the ruling Congress party – Sonia Gandhi. Similar to Sonia (Italian origin), Rajneeti’s lead heroine is a British born actress who speaks with highly accented Hindi. Regardless of the controversy surrounding this movie, it is safe to assume that it will highlight the dark side of Indian politics. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as about 25% of Indian leaders in the Parliament have a criminal record!

About Raajneeti

Raajneeti is a story about Indian politics. India being the most populous democratic nation in the world, politics has both a pleasant side and an ugly side. The movie is about the use of power and the extent to which people go to get the power. This new bollywood movie has eight key characters and each character has a story to tell and a twist. The election campaign is a critical piece of any democracy and this new bollywood movie shows the extreme side to it as it is practiced in India. The movie shows the raw side of Indian politics. A nice aspect of the movie is that the proceeds from the Global Launch will go to constructing a state of the art hospital in India’s most rural and impoverished state – Bihar. The hospital will not only help Bihar, but also surrounding areas, such as Nepal.
