Sanju Baba as Baba Ramdev
Highly impressed with yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s fast-unto-death, Bolywood director Mani Shankar has decided to make a film on him. He is closely monitoring Baba’s fast for eradication of corruption and how his fast was disrupted by police at the Ram lila ground in Delhi. Mani Shankar imagines Sanjay Dutt in Baba Ramdev’s role.
Mani says, “I was fired by Baba’s public stance to get back the money stashed away abroad. It inspired me to think of the story of KO. Now, I have a new script that looks at the idea of corruption and politicians from Baba Ramdev’s perspective.”
On asking Sanjay Dutt’s probability in the movie, the filmmaker quips, “He will never say no to me. I can’t tell you at the moment what he will play in my film. This much I can say, Sanju exudes the purity to play Baba”.
