Biopics are surely Bollywood’s favourite genre with so many of them reaping gold at the box office. With filmmakers tasting success, another biopic is already being planned with an aim to keep the audience gripped.

As per reports, producer Sunil Bohra will be making a biopic on disgraced godman Asaram Bapu, and it is being said that he has already bought the rights of the Ushinor Majumdar’s novel, God Of Sin: The Cult, Clout, and Downfall Of Asaram Bapu, basis which he will be making it into a film soon.

Talking about the same, Sunil said, “I read the book and was taken in by 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. In my eyes, they are the real heroes. We will focus on these people and the rest will be based on facts. 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 have an international appeal. The cast will be decided once the script is ready.” 

Like the book, the film will revolve around his journey from being a popular spiritual leader with an enormous fan following to his sexual assault case in 2013. He was convicted of rape in 2018 and is currently serving a life sentence.

On the film front, Sunil has also produced films such as Gangs Of Wasseypur, Shahid, Tanu Weds Manu, and The Accidental Prime Minister.
