Filmmaker Prakash Jha says Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to abolish Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency to curtail black money may be creating problems right now, but the idea deserves a chance.
The 64-year-old “Jai Gangaajal” director said this may be the way to clean the corrupt system.
“Transiting to a cashless system is a gigantic & painful process, but that’s the way to clean up the system! The idea deserves a chance!” Jha tweeted.
The filmmaker is the new addition to the list of celebrities praising PM Modi’s demonetisation move. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, south superstar Rajinikanth, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan among others have previously lauded the decision.
