Amitabh Bachchan to watch Aarakshan with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar

Amitabh Bachchan will be flying to Patna to watch his upcoming film Aarakshan with Mr. Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar. Nitish Kumar is an ardent fan of Big B and expressed his desire to watch the film with Bachchan and director Prakash Jha.


Nitish Kumar and Prakash Jha have been friends for a very long time. Jha had even campaigned for Nitish Kumar during the elections in Bihar. Jha invited Nitish Kumar for a special screening of Aarakshan when the latter came to visit a new restaurant at Prakash Jha's shopping mall in Patna. Nitishji then told Prakash that he would watch the film only if Big B and Prakash both were present at the screening.


Jha conveyed the Chief Minister's request to Amitabh Bachchan who immediately agreed to fly down to Patna for a day despite his hectic schedule. Big B's travel arrangements to the city are currently being made.


Aarakshan revolves around caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions. The film, which releases on August 12, also stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik.
