After Knock Out, Mani Shankar now sets his eyes on Baba Ramdev's life. And for portraying the role of spiritual guru, he has shortlisted none other than Sanjay Dutt.

Baba Ramdev met director Mani Shankar and Knock Out co-producer Amitabh Parekh at Chandigarh, where he had stopped to address his disciples, reports Mumbai Mirror.

Apparently Baba Ramdev was mighty impressed with Knock Out and recommended the film to his disciples. He also went gaga about Sanjay Dutt's performance in the film.

Sanjay DuttNot only this the yoga guru also sent bulk messages to his six crore devotees about the film.

It seems the 'Knock Out' effect worked and Shankar zeroed in on Sanjay Dutt for the lead role.

Shankar tells Mumbai Mirror, “I’m very impressed by Baba Ramdev’s Swabhimaaan Andolan. I wanted to make a film on the subject for a very long time. It was ominous that while I was in Chandigarh with Baba Ramdev, I got to know that Sanju was blessed with twins. I think the two Babas in my life were always fated to come together."
