I think it will be a wonderful project: Prakash Jha on Lalu biopic

I think it will be a wonderful subject, but unfortunately I am not involved in it.”

Although the filmmaker was asked about it earlier, he neither confirmed nor denied it. This is the first time he has spoken and disassociated himself from any such plan.
