Director Prakash Jha has reportedly decided to make a film called Satsang, which is said to be inspired by self-styled godman Asaram.

It is being speculated that either Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal or Manoj Bajpayee will play the lead role.

When asked at an event here about the movie, Arjun said: "I got to know about this news today morning only through newspapers. I don't know about it."

"I think, I will have to work a lot to play Asaram Bapu (Laughs)...mujhe bahut mehnat karni padegi Asaram Bapu banne ke liye," he added in a lighter vein.

Reportedly Satsang will also throw light on the recent controversy surrounding Asaram who has been booked under various sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act and the Indian Penal Code after a 16-year-old alleged that he raped her.
