Sayaji Shinde, who is known more for his villain roles in Telugu films, will be seen as Shirdi Sai Baba in a forthcoming devotional film which will be directed by Rajavamsi of Madhura Meenakshi fame.
The film will not be just a biography of Baba but will be a socio-fantasy film with a few other characters playing devotees. The film will have plenty of graphics and special visual effects.
Sayaji Shinde is said to have accepted the role, in spite of his busy schedule, because of the novelty of the film’s story. Moreover, a devotional film and playing the role of Baba would be a blessing in disguise for this talented actor.
Pre-production works are now in progress and the film will go on floors in January next year.
