Will oppose Aarakshan: Athawale

New Delhi:  RPI leader Ramdas Athawale today said his party would oppose Prakash Jha’s upcoming flick Aarakshan if its contents are detrimental to the interest of dalits.

“We will oppose the film (Aarakshan) if its contents are against Dalits and try to paint the upper-castes in good light,” Athawale told reporters here.

Aarakshan, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Saif Ali Khan in lead roles is a socio-political drama based on caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes had recently dubbed ‘Aarkashan’, to be released on August 12, as “anti-dalit”.
