Actor-cum-director Ramesh Aravind has slammed the reports of making a movie on Nithyananda stating that his next movie Samayananda is about a godmen, but it is not based on Swami Nithyananda"s life. The rumours started making round in Gandhinagar immediately after he announced his next project. The film will be directed by Gajendra Achar and will go on the floors in July.
According to Ramesh, the script works are currently going on for the film Samayananda. Talking about the upcoming film, he dismisses the speculation that it revolves around Swami Nithyananda"s scandalous sex tape with Tamil actress. He says, “It"s not about Nityananda or any particular swamiji. It"ll be a humorous take on godmen in general," the Bangalore Times quotes him as saying.
However, Ramesh admits that his character in Samayananda is a swamiji with a roving eye, who is attracted to women. He says that the movie will not be a masala entertainer. Rather it will be portrayed in a humorous way and be a pure entertainer. It will send out a message too. It emphasises that women should not be demeaned or exploited in the name of religion, the Bangalore Times reports him as saying.
