A Ramon Magsaysay Award winner, Arvind Kejriwal had left his job with the Income Tax Department to pursue social welfare activities. He came into limelight in 2011 when he led the Jan Lokpal movement along with Anna Hazare. He launched the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in 2012 and was elected as Delhi’s chief minister in 2013 and then again in 2015.
The documentary had gained attention as its release was stalled earlier after the censor board asked the filmmakers to get no objection certificate from the Prime Minister and the Delhi Chief Minister before eventually being cleared by the ‘Film Certification Appellate Tribunal’.The documentary has been screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, 2016. It will be released all across the country and abroad by Vice Media with the partnership of producer Anand Gandhi’s Memesys Lab.
