While the historic national song 'Saare jahaan se achha' mirrors the unity in diversity of our motherland India, the upcoming film Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga is all set to mirror the inflation rate that's prevalent in the country. It's a hilarious and satirical take on inflation through the life of a middle class family of North India. And as a part of the promotional strategy, the film's makers have picked up on a real issue of the financial budget 2013-14 by participating in a 'dharna' at the Jantar Mantar in Delhi, late last week.
The ones who participated included Sanjay Mishra, Pragati Pandey, Disha, Rajnan Chabra, director Anshul Sharma and producer Ashok Pandey alongwith a host of supporters. The said 'dharna' was to express unity with the middle class over possible increases in prices in the upcoming budget. Talking about the 'event', Sanjay Mishra said, "The tax-paying middle class is already overburdened. It is high time they got some relief in the Budget. But if the government reduces prices of any essentials, people may even die because of this acute shock. His opinion was seconded by Anshul Sharma, who said, "Increase in the prices of onions, which is a staple diet for the large middle class population, had a cascading affect on the budgets of various households. The common man has been hit by the high rate of food inflation."
Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga releases on 8th March this year.
