Aarakshan team denied permission to conduct seminars in UP

It's a classic case of fighting for your rights. Critically acclaimed director Prakash Jha is pretty peeved as the Uttar Pradesh government has been overtly reticent towards his upcoming film Aarakshan.

The film which stars Amitabh Bachchan features the star as a principal of a college torn by reservation issues. Keeping this theme in mind, the makers were to hold seminars on reservations in Lucknow, however they were denied permission for the same.

Speaking about this Jha says that first they were denied permission to hold the seminar on job reservation at the Lucknow University. Later when they hired the Indira Gandhi auditorium, permission was denied yet again by the Lucknow Development Authority.

To appease this situation, Jha has even left a message with a close associate of CM Mayawati saying that he is willing to arrange a special screening of the film for her.

Further details are awaited.
