Anna Hazare took the nation by storm in 2011 when his agitation and fast unto death for the Jan Lokpal bill garnered widespread media coverage and support from the common man alike. Thousands of people descended on the Ramlila Ground in New Delhi to support Anna in his crusade against corruption.
Though how it all went down is another story, Anna’s illuminating work over the years in his village of Ralegan Siddhi came to light because of this and a hero in his own right was introduced to the people.
It is with this spirit that the movie on his life titled, "Anna” has been made and the first teaser for the same has now hit the net.
The movie chronicles his life, first as a child, then as a Soldier and finally as the Anna that we all know about.
The movie also stars among others, Tanishaa Mukerji, veteran actors like Govind Namdev and Sharat Saxena as well the director of the movie Shashank Udapurkar as Anna himself.
The film is slated to release on 14th October 2016. Check out the teaser below:
