When Karan Johar referenced actress Ravenna Tandon’s name in his film, he got an NOC from her, it was also the case with Jolly LLB-2 the makers had to also take NOC from Salman Khan to use his name.
About the Movie An Insignificant Man

An Insignificant Man at the heart is the most polarising man in India today – Arvind Kejriwal. The movie follows Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party – an insurgent new political party, as they take up basic public issues like water, electricity, and graft against the country’s oldest and most powerful two political establishments.

The movie gives an insider’s view into Arvind’s brand of politics, which has split popular opinion into two prominent factions. One labels it selfish and anarchic, while the other insists on seeing it as a major shift in the Indian political paradigm.

The 100-minute film has been distilled from 400 hours of behind-the-scenes footage shot over a course of two years with a fly-on-the-wall approach. We gain a premium, all-access pass to the backstage of a new brand of politics, finding strength all over the world, transporting us smack dab in the middle of party offices, daily meetings, and heated arguments, inside jokes, campaign strategies and the true events and ideologies that inform rhetoric in public space.

With never-before-seen footage, the film offers a unique insight into the fledgling political party’s battle between survival and extinction in the largest democracy in the world. It follows activists, politicians, and academics on their best days and their worst, as they navigate the absurdities, trials, and chaos of Indian politics; and as they reveal their agendas, intentions and ambitions. Capturing moments of triumph and despair, the film is a moving cinematic journey through the narrow lanes of Delhi’s slums to the closed corridors of political power.
