Prakash Jha is all set to make a movie on the life of the controversial godman Asaram Bapu. If reports are to be believed, Prakash Jha's next would be titled Satsang. The director has recently made the movie, Satyagraha, based on the life of social worker Anna Hazare. It would be interesting to see who he picks up to play the role of the infamous godman.
Prakash Jha is famous for making movies which have some kind of social message but he also keeps a tab on the mindset of his audience and thus his films are also of commercial nature. But the big question is who will play the notorious godman Asaram Bapu. The Satyagraha filmmaker usually repeats the actor's in his movies and the list includes the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpai. Now it would be interesting to see whether he casts one of the actor from his regular brigade or he goes for someone new. We think that one of these actor's definitely deserve the chance to act in the lead. Amitabh Bachchan would be the apt choice as he is of the same age as Asaram, as well as his experience would come in handy. Ajay Devgan and Prakash Jha go a long way back and together they have given some power packed performances. Click here for the images of Ajay Devgan.
Arjun Rampal is fortunate that in recent times he has got to be a part of Prakash Jha's films and this would be a chance for the actor to prove himself as a performer. Manoj Bajpai is one of the finest and most versatile actor of this era. He can essay any role with great ease and this makes him a strong contender for the role of Asaram. Well, we will have to wait and see that who Prakash Jha chooses and how his movie pans out to be.
