MUMBAI: With the President of India’s national integration award in his pocket and a lot of accolades behind him for his film Shirdi Sai Baba, Aushim Khetarpal is currently filming Baba Ramsaa Peer being produced by Satish Tandon Productions and Orient Tradelink.
The film depicts the life history of the most reverred princely saint from the western coast Baba Ramsaa Peer who was the first to spread the message of Hindu-Muslim unity in the 14th century.
The film captures the magic of the period when Baba Ramsaa Peer dispensed humanity, peace, love and healing.
While the Hindus lovingly called him Baba, the Muslims called him Peer, the name given to him by five Persian peers who had visited India in that era.
The film boasts of a strong star cast with Khetarpal himself playing the key role Baba Ramsaa Peer along with Gracy Singh. It is made in Rajasthani and Hindi , while special attention is given to the costumes and dialect.
The film has been extensively shot in Mumbai, Jodhpur, Jaipur and Roncha village and at the actual Samadhi of Baba Ramsaa.
