In April 2011, then then 75-year-old social activist Padma Bhushan Anna Hazare sat on a hunger strike in New Delhi, demanding the UPA government to implement The Jan Lokpal Bill, a strict anti-corruption law.Anna's call for awakening inspired millions of youths and even seniors to unite their voices against corruption and soon, the protests turned into a movement. The grand old man termed this movement as the 'Second Battle for Independence'.
Anna's hunger strike ended in 5 days but it had already untied the entire country with only one spirit and that is to see an India free from corruption. Now, a biopic named Anna, based on this movement and Anna's life is being made and the first look has been released today.The shooting of the film began in September last year as Anna's native village Ralegaon Siddhi. The film will showcase Anna's childhood, his days in the Indian army, his life as a social activist and then the fight against corruption. Shashank Udapurkar is directing this film and Tanishaa Mukerji is playing the role of a journalist in it.
