Baba Ramdev is about to take over television! Yes, Ajay Devgn is coming up with a new TV series- Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh, which is basically a tell-all on the life of the yoga guru.
As soon as the show was announced, everyone was waiting to find out who would essay the role of Ramdev. The actor has now finally been announced!
Via a tweet earlier today, Ajay Devgn has confirmed that actor Kranti Prakash Jha, who was last seen in the Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer MS Dhoni: The Untold Story as his aide and friend, has been roped in to play Baba Ramdev.

In an official statement to Mumbai Mirror, Ajay Devgn said:
“The show has the potential to become one of the most talked about on Indian television. We wanted a fresh face for the title role, someone who looks like the real-life Ramdev and be able to emulate his mannerisms convincingly on screen. I’m happy that Kranti is ready to walk the extra mile.”
Not just Devgn, Baba Ramdev too is pretty happy with Kranti playing him onscreen. Here’s what he said:
“Kranti’s inherently spiritual personality and ability to remember and recite shlokas in the Sanskrit language impressed me. I enjoyed an early morning yoga session with him, he is working hard to get the asanas right.”
We’re all really excited to see what the show is going to be like. Aren’t you?
