Known to be one of the few directors whose films have social or political relevance, Prakash Jha is all set to come up with his next film that is based on a true incident. The film is titled Pareeksha and is based on the children living in the Naxal affected areas of Bihar. Some of the children there are noticed to have exceptional intelligence, despite not going to school or any formal education.

Pareeksha will star Adil Hussain, Sanjay Suri and Priyanka Bose in leading roles. A man called Abhayanand is the inspiration behind the movie although it isn’t a biopic as per director Prakash Jha. The film’s release date is yet to be announced. The director has previously made films like Aarakshan starring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan.
