Prakash Raj as Satya Sai Baba?
Director Kodi Rama Krishna has announced that he will make a film on the life of Satya Sai Baba which will be produced by Hari Rama Jogaiah. The pre-production work is in progress and the cast and crew are being finalised. This film will be made in Telugu but it will have versions in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi and Marathi.
According to sources, Prakash Raj has been approached to play the role of Satya Sai Baba as he is popular in all the South Indian language films. It is not known whether Prakash Raj is willing to don a spiritual role as he is known more for his villain roles. Moreover, Prakash Raj is said to be busy with scores of acting assignments and a couple of home productions.
Kodi Rama Krishna is said to be consulting Tollywood friends on whom to select to play the role of Satya Sai Baba. Finally, a new face may be selected. Previously, only Vijaychander used to don the roles of spiritual persons.
Cast selection for the film being produced by Hari Rama Jogaiah is in progress. Ever since the announcement has been made, everyone around has been curious as to who will be donning the role of Satya Sai Baba.
Word around is that character artiste Prakash Raj may have been chosen for the same. Reason for this choice is because he is popular not only with the Telugu audience, but also with the Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam audience. He has also earned reputation as a good artiste in Bollywood.
With all these points to his credit, the producer and the director have reportedly felt that he would be the best choice for this role. However, all hell broke loose after Baba’s death. There are mysteries exploding from the Satya Sai Trust. In this context, it should be seen if Prakash Raj would accept the role.
