Filmmaker Prakash Jha, known for his political dramas, says his upcoming film "Satyagraha" is not about any movement but a story about a father and son relationship.

"It's not a story of Mahatma Gandhi, Anna Hazare or Nirbaya but it has the essence. It's a story about a father and son and their relationship. The film is not inspired by any movement," he said.

"The story is about a father and son who are poles apart. I am not here to create a social jihad," Jha told reporters during launch of the film's song "Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram".

Describing the song, he said: "We all love this song...we have not changed it, we have only added a few words and not made too many changes in the song. This song showcases the aggression of today's youth".

Kareena Kapoor, who is playing a journalist in the film, says her character is not inspired by anybody in the field.

"My character is not inspired by any journalist... she is totally involved in her work. She is a woman with dignity and power and this character has been written by Prakash Jha and not inspired by anyone."

"Satyagraha" also features Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, and Arjun Rampal among others. The film is slated for release Aug 30.
