Prakash Jha told IANS: "Yes, we have the song 'Raghupati Raghav' in the film. It comes at a very crucial juncture in 'Satyagraha', in the life of the character that Amitabh Bachchan is playing."

Revealing more about the song, a source close to the team further added: "Prakashji is using the iconic 'Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram' song in 'Satyagraha'. It will be featured on Amitabh Bachchan who plays a role that has been inspired by Anna Hazare."

"Anna is a Gandhian and 'Raghupati Raghav' was one of the most favourite bhajans (songs) of Mahatma Gandhi who even sang the song to his followers during the famous Dandi March," says a source close to the production.

"Amitabh Bachchan's character is inspired by Gandhi's philosophies and it is only fitting that 'Raghupati Raghav' song in the film primarily features Amitabh Bachchan along with the cast members of 'Satyagraha'," the source added.

Directed by Prakash Jha, "Satyagraha" features Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Rao, among others.
