Ajay Devgn is all set to produce a TV series on Yoga guru Swami Ramdev, which is suppose to be a tell all story Ramdev, who to this day remains an enigma for most. The series will focus on the entire life of ramdev from his childhood to the rise as a leader for millions of people in India who follow him blindly. With the inauguration and success of brand Patanjali in making and selling household products on an unprecedented rate, Ramdev has certainly built an empire from his own brand value. Ramdev’s household reach and trust is the reason why Patanjali picked up so instantly off the stores by people and also got good reviews on almost all the products.
There were a lot of speculations about who will play Ramdev and Ajay roped in Kranti Prakash Jha to portray the character. Kranti has played the role of Santosh Lal in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer M.S. Dhoni- The Untold story in 2016. Santosh Lal portrayed by Kranti was a real life character and Kranti was highly appreciated for the realistic portrayal. The exact date of airing the TV series has not been announced yet but it might start airing in January of 2018.
The series will air on Discovery Jeet, as it will also launch the branch of channel in a big way to the household audience. The series will focus on all aspects of his life and that must include the socio-political element that came in later after he became the Yoga guru. Baba Ramdev is nothing short of a controversial figure and he has a huge fan following hence it can be difficult for the show to be edgy and honest at the same time given the political climate of this country. It might as well ends up being a hagiography of Ramdev promoting his brand value.
