"I can do something only through my work, through my movies. I can only hope the youngsters get the message," said the actor, whose political drama "Satyagraha" hit the theatres on Friday.
From being an action hero to playing intense characters, Devgan has always experimented with his roles and the 44-year-old actor is back with a new issue-based film, which he says is targeted to the youth.
“Satyagraha targets the youth of the country and will inspire them to channelize their anger in the right direction. It entertains you but at the same time, it leaves a deep impact on your mind. It is an emotional drama which leaves you with an optimistic, positive message," Devgan said.
"My character in the movie is of a corporate guy, a business tycoon who becomes a part of the Satyagraha movement after realizing how corruption has become deep rooted in our society. It reflects the uprising of the middle-class against an unjust system," said Devgan, who was in the capital to attend the Aaj Tak Care Awards.
The Prakash Jha directed film also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai and Amrita Rao.
Talking about his co-stars in the film, Devgan said," It's always a pleasure to work with Amitji. Kareena and I have worked earlier in two movies ('Omkara' and 'Golmaal 2'). Arjun was there in 'Rajneeti'. It's always great working with them," he said.
