Osho in the spotlight

Leading Indian producer Subhash Ghai has joined forces with Rome-based Navala productions to launch biographical drama Osho: Lord of the Full Moon. 

The film will be structured as a large-budget India-Italy co-venture. The film’s focus is the controversial Indian mystic Osho, formerly known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, who died in 1990. He proposed alternative rules for living and self-improvement which over-rose conventional religions. His 600 books remain hugely popular, and he was recently the subject of six-part Netflix Original documentary series Wild, Wild Country.

Besides Osho, the other main character of the film is a female TV journalist who puts her career at stake trying to discover if the guru is a conman, or an enlightened genius. The film will be directed by Italy-based Lakshen Sukameli. The project was announced recently at Cannes.
