Anna, the biopic of anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, will see the actress back on the silver screen after Be Careful, in 2011. She plays the role of a journalist in the movie. a�?This film is an attempt to inspire everyone and is not meant to stir any controversy,a�? clarifies the Mumbai-based actress. Tracing Annaa��s life from his days in the army to the recent Lokpal campaign, it tries to demystify the motivation behind Annaa��s stand. For her role in the film, she intensively researched mainstream TV journalists in the country and says that director Shashank Udapurkara��s clear vision also helped her a lot. a�?You have to be a mix of a directora��s actor and one who lives the role on their own terms. One doesna��t exist without the other,a�? the 35-year-old star adds. Talking about shooting for the film, she says, a�?Sequences at Annaa��s village were the most memorable. It is humbling and inspiring to see so many people turn up to be a part of this project just because of one mana��s conviction.a�? Mukerji, who made heads turn during her stints in Bigg Boss and Khatron Ke Khiladi, looks forward to television projects as long as they pose a challenge. a�?Be it films, TV or even a web series, I am open to doing anything,a�? she concludes.
Anna is scheduled to release later this year.
