Asaram Bapu, one of the many ‘godmen’ in India, rose to limelight after his comments on the 2012 Delhi Gang-Rape. This guy allegedly said “only five or six people are not the culprits. The victim is as guilty as her rapists… She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop… This could have saved her dignity and life. Can one hand clap? I don’t think so.” Later he was arrested for sexually assaulting a teenaged girl on the pretext of exorcising her.
Now, another movie is being made on him, by the same director Manoj Sharma, after the 2010 movie Swaha. Popular TV actor Hemant Pandey, who is playing the role of Asaram Bapu, said “The film will expose all those who have turned religion into a business and the public is becoming their victim.”
This film is titled Chal Guru Ho Ja Shuru and is scheduled to start shooting in November this year and is gearing up for a summer release next year. The godman Asaram Bapu is currently in Jail.
