Ajay Devgan To Play Baba Ramdev In Yoga Guru’s Biopic?:- As biopics are doing well at the box office, now it is the life of Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, set to hit the silver screen.
It is believed that after Vikrant Massey opted out of the project which was originally meant for the small screen, Bollywood actor, Ajay Devgan has signed the movie to play Ramdev in the biopic.
Earlier, Massey had been approached for the role and had started gearing up for it too. During the course of their interaction, he was scheduled to meet Ramdev and pick up his mannerisms. However, the “A Death in the Gunj” actor after having ventured into films, backed out of the project as he was not too keen on doing television.
According to the industry sources, after Massey’s withdrawal, when Devgan stepped in, the TV program had taken the shape of a big screen biopic. If the project is made, the numerous controversies surrounding the yoga guru, his Patanjali business empire, and his turbulent tryst with politics could lend a lot of color to the biopic. Devgan, who owns the production company Ajay Devgan Films, is keen on bringing the yogi’s life to the forefront, says sources.
Currently, the actor is busy with the promotions of Milan Luthria’s Baadshaaho. The film has an ensemble cast consisting of Ileana D’Cruz, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jammwal and Esha Gupta.
