Mumbai, Feb 16: Eminent Bhajan singer Anup Jalota will mark his acting debut by playing the iconic god man Sathya Sai Baba in a film with the same title, says a media report.
Directed by Vicky Ranawat, the film will go on the floors shortly.
Ranawat said, "Anupji bears an uncannily, striking resemblance to Sai Baba. He also happens to be Sai Baba's follower and has been closely associated with him for many years.
"It gives us an edge because Anupji is well-versed in Baba's mannerisms and nuances. It helps us greatly because we can be as realistic as possible.
" He's thrilled to be a part of the film and taking a keen interest in every aspect."
