Raajneeti ('English: Politics) (Hindi: ???????) is an upcoming 2010 Indian political thriller. It is written, directed, and produced by Prakash Jha. The film, shot in Bhopal, stars Ajay Devgn,Ranbir Kapoor Arjun Rampal and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. The film is scheduled for release on 4 June, 2010.
Raajneeti was first denied a censor certificate by the censor board of India for what they have thought as that the lead character played by Katrina Kaif in the film is inspired fully or partial from the Congress Party's Chief Sonia Gandhi. Director of the film, Prakash Jha has dismissed this allegation, as he says that only inspiration he has taken in the making of film is from Mahabharta-an epic from ancient India. Reference to electronic voting machines and parts of the film suggesting that women have to compromise to get ahead in politics, crude dialogues about the Muslim community and some intimate scenes and excessive violence were also removed before giving the film a U/A censor certificate.
