Film-maker Vivek Agnihotri writes of his journey in making the film “Buddha in a Traffic Jam” which exposed the nexus between an India-wide Maoist terror movement and their supporters in urban centers such as academia and media. Naxalites are waging war on India with details plans for an overthrow of the State. Urban Naxals act to amplify their message, serve as recruiters and wage a propaganda war through social and conventional media. This gripping story recounts Agnihotri’s own grooming in College to be an Urban Naxal and details the plans and modus operandi of the movement. Agnihotri’s story is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Buddha in a Traffic Jam”, the violent resistance to its screening, and an expose of the world’s largest extreme-left terror movement and its penetration into urban India.
