Preparations for the film have already begun and it is being said that Sanjay Dutt and co-producer of the film, Amitabh Parekh went on a recent trip to Chandigarh to pay a visit to India"s yoga trainer. Baba Ramdev is presently staying in Chandigarh to address a meeting with his disciples. Not only are they in talks, Mani Shankar reportedly arranged for a special screening of his movie Knock Out for Baba Ramdev and the yoga expert was reportedly so impressed with the actor"s performance in the film that he even recommended the film to the six crore devotees that Ramdev has in this country.
In a statement to the media, Mani Shankar said that Baba Ramdev"s 'Swabhimaan Andolan" was his inspiration to make a film on the yoga guru. And considering that Sanjay Dutt is also known as Sanju Baba in Bollywood, it was only apt that the two Babas come together.
