Filmmaker and scriptwriter Mahesh Bhatt has turned a Buddhist monk for director Mukul Misra’s movie Siddhartha.
One’s never too old to make an acting debut. Mahesh Bhatt is making his at 64 in a movie titled Siddhartha, which tells the story of a man’s disillusionment with the world and his search for inner peace.
The movie has actor Shivam Bhargav playing the titular role. His ladylove is played by Shazahn Padamsee. Shivam plays a character that leads a life of indulgence and debauchery before renouncing it to look for salvation in the hills of Manali. That’s where he meets the Buddhist Lama, played by Mahesh Bhatt. The Lama helps Shivam connect with his inner Buddha.
Siddhartha is not a rip-off of Nobel winning author Hermann Hesse’s sublime book by the same name.
