Ranveer Singh is a strong contender for the role of Osho in his biopic.

Osho, Ranveer Singh

A biopic on the controversial spiritual guru Acharya Rajneesh, popularly known as Osho, is being planned by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. Osho, who had a huge impact on the minds and hearts of people across the world in the 1970s, was also religiously followed by Bollywood celebrities such as Mahesh Bhatt, Parveen Babi and Vinod Khanna. (Gully Boy Ranveer Singh's Holi plan includes American singer Pharrell Williams)

If reports are to be believed, the biopic will cover all the controversial aspects of the life of Osho, whose teachings continue to inspire millions across the world to follow the path of spirituality and attain enlightenment.

The film, we hear, will be directed by Shakun Batra, who has earlier helmed films like Kapoor & Sons Since 1921 and Ekk Main Aur Ekk Tu for Dharma Productions. As for the actor, who will step into Osho's shoes, Ranveer Singh, reliable sources confirm, is a strong contender.

Ranveer, who has proved his acting mettle with films like Lootera, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, among several others, we believe, has all the potential to pull off a role like this.
