We have all seen actress Amrita Rao in docile roles but this time she is going to surprise us all with her rebellious role in Satyagraha. Even though the actress is happy with her performance in her previous films like Ishq Vishk, Vivah and Welcome to Sajjanpur, Amrita is is particularly proud of her performance in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha where she is Amitabh Bachchan's daughter-in-law.
The 32-year-old felt like this role was a privilege for her. "I have done a lot of films which I am happy about but this one, I am proud of. As an actress it is a privilege to play someone representing the youth of our country. It is such a sensitive subject. It almost felt like I was living the angst of the youth," said Amrita.
The movie is inspired from current situations and depicts a democracy that is not functioning well. "There were moments while shooting, where everyone felt frustrated seeing what is happening in our nation today," the actress explained.
Amrita describes her character in Satyagraha as a morally upright and strong girl from a small town who represents the 'aam aadmi'. "Sumitra Anand comes from a small town, educated family. She symbolises the aam aadmi who faces so many obstacles in day-to-day working. There is so much corruption on so many levels of democracy that the common man is deprived of the basic rights. In the fight against all of this she become a part of Satyagraha," Amrita said.
The actress is glad that she got an opportunity to work with Prakash Jha. "Jhaji has always made films with a light of reality and the audience has always accepted it. It was an overwhelming film to work in," she added.
