‘The Accidental PM’ Producer to Make Biopic on Asaram Bapu

Bollywood has always had a soft corner for biopics. While Parineeti Chopra is busy preparing for the Saina Nehwal biopic, Vicky Kaushal has undergone a transformation for Sardar Udham Singh biopic. Now, a film on Asaram Bapu is in the pipeline.

Producer Sunil Bohra has bought the rights of the Ushinor Majumdar’s novel, God Of Sin: The Cult, Clout And Downfall Of Asaram Bapu and will be turning it into a film soon.

The film will trace Asaram Bapu’s journey from a so-called godman to his conviction in 2018. Asaram Bapu was convicted of rape in 2018 and is currently serving a life sentence.

“After reading the book, I was touched by the story of the lawyer PC Solanki, who fought the case for the victims against Asaram Bapu for free. The two lady police officers – one from Jodhpur and the other from Surat – are inspiring too. I believe that they are the real heroes who fought for justice. We will focus on these people. I bought the rights of the book last month. I have started meeting writers and shall lock the team soon. I want the movie to reach out to global audiences too. The cast will be decided once the script is ready,” Sunil Bohra said in a statement, Bohra has also produced The Accidental Prime Minister, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Shahid, Tanu Weds Manu .
