Did Prakash Jha Get An Election Ticket For Launching Ram Vilas Paswan’s Son?March 24th, 2009 - 10:19 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
By Subhash K Jha
All of Bihar is abuzz with the rumour that Prakash Jha has been given an election ticket by Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP party in Bihar on promise that Prakash will launch Paswan’s son Chriag as a leading man.
Though Prakash outright denies such a deal he doesn’t rule out the possibility of working with Ram Vilas Paswan’s son Chirag who’s now based in Mumbai and preparing for a career in films.
Says Prakash, “Chirag is a very gifted boy. He’s tall and goodlooking and idea hero material. He has also been training hard for a career and is not taking the golden spoon in his mouth lightly. So yes as a filmmaker from Bihar I do feel duty-bound to do something with Chirag. However I’m not launching Chirag. Do I look like the kind of person who’d give in to such arm-twisting tactics?Anuj Saxena is doing the needful. And he has all my support. I recently went through the script of Chirag’s launch film and I must say it’s funny and intelligent.”
Anuj Saxena of Maverick Productions who has a release Aloo Chaat coming up throws light for the first time on Paswan’s launch film.
“It’s a film entitled 50-50 directed by Tanvir Khan who did Madhoshi (with John and Bipasha). The film is in full pre-production and we start in June We’ve chosen a love story for Chirag’s launch with three new girls. Baba Azmi is doing the cinematography.”
Ask Anuj if the powerful politician has put his money into the son’s launch and Anuj denies it completely. “Chirag has it in him to become a star. I love launching new actors. In Aloo Chaat I’ve launched tv actress Amna Sharif .”
