It is heard that victory Venkatesh’s dream role is that of Swamy Vivekananda and a project is being planned from a long time. Initially, JK Bharavi and K Raghavendra Rao thought to work on it but such large story on silver screen would be difficult. So, they wanted to convert it into a serial.

Two to three writers came in and then the national award winning director Neelakantha was also brought in, but it didn’t take off. All in all, only on paperwork lot of investments have gone through from Suresh productions but it is not sure whether this project will ever take off.

Some are also asking what is the need to bring Vivekananda’s story into public. Also, if people have to be inspired then it has to be narrated with real life incidents. At the same time there is also a commercial outlook but it doesn’t work for stories like these. So, different theories are making rounds. One thought emerging now is to convert it into a film like ‘Munnabhai’ where in Swamy Vivekananda comes into someone’s life and brings the change. Well, we have to see if and how the dream project will ever shape up.
