Director Madan Patel, who belongs to the Bharatiya Janata Party,
has dared to do a movie based on the recent expose of Swamy
Nithyananda's scandal. The film has been titled
Sathyananda and Madan describes it as his most ambitious
project, which started rolling from last week.
The muhuratha of Sathyananda was recently held at the
Freedom Park in Bangalore. Addressing the media, Madan Patel said,
"I am a staunch believer in Hinduism, which is facing a big threat
these days. Some fraudulent, self proclaiming god men are playing
with the beliefs and trust of Hindus. I want to expose them and
create awareness among the people."
The Kannada film producer is success in finding Ravi Chethan for
the lead role (Nithyananda) in the film Sathyananda. He
has approached Nimitha and Charmi for female lead, which is yet to
be confirmed. Dinakar has written the dialogues and Ragu is the
cameraman for the film.
However, the film launch of Sathyananda was a grand
event, which was attended by several top politicians including Home
Minister R Ashok. The shooting of the first day was held at Freedom
Park after taking a few shots of the muhurath.
