‘Buddha In A Traffic Jam most relevant film of our times’

‘Buddha In A Traffic Jam most relevant film of our times’
“It is the most relevant film of our times. We had made the film three years ago; due to certain reasons it couldn’t release... It is difficult for small films to release.

 Considering what is happening in the country, there could not have been a more relevant film than this,” Anupam said at a screening of the film, directed by Vivek Agnihotri.  In the film, Anupam plays a professor of a business school –a university where corruption and other national issues occur.

 The recent controversy at the capital’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for alleged anti-national slogans, followed by arrests of some students and continuous involvement of the police, court and media, perhaps has parallels with the incidents of the film.

Anupam said: “What we made three years ago is happening today. So, real life has copied reel life. I want to appreciate Vivek for the way he marketed the film. I don’t think he had the budget for the proper marketing and publicity. 

He went to numerous education institutes like IITs, because it is a film about students,” added the actor. 

During Agnihotri’s recent visits to universities, there were clashes at the Jadavpur University in Kolkata.
