Baba Ramdev is one figure in India you can’t not know about. The ultimate yoga guru, the national icon and the recently turned entrepreneur, Baba Ramdev is always in the news for some or the other reason. And now in the times of biopics, Kranti Prakash Jha of ‘M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story’ fame has been shortlisted to play the coveted role of Baba Ramdev in his biographical TV series, Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh.
The series aims to showcase the life of the yoga guru and his journey from an anonymous person to a renowned yoga guru not only in India but on a global scale. The show is produced by Ajay Devgn and he has recently shared a gif poster on his Twitter account.

Baba Ramdev has recently said to a leading daily, “Kranti’s inherently spiritual personality and his ability to remember and recite shlokas in the Sanskrit language impressed me. I enjoyed having an early morning yoga session with him, he is working hard to get the asanas right.” In return the actor has said, “It is a challenge to play a multi-faceted personality like Swami Ramdev. I will do my level best to deliver a convincing performance.”
The show will be aired on the soon to be launched GEC channel, Discovery Jeet.
