While the actor is known for his strong inclination towards spirituality in real life, this is for the first time that, Vinod Khanna is getting to essay a spiritual based character onscreen. The dashing and handsome actor has signed his next project wherein he will be seen essaying the role of Lord Gautam Buddha. The yet untitled project is based on the story of state courtesan Amrapali.
While debutante actress Jindal Pandya will be seen essaying the character of Amrapali, who is also known as the ‘bride of Vaishali’, veteran actor Vinod Khanna will relive the character of Lord Buddha. According to history, Amrapali, who had several royals mesmerized with her stupendous beauty and charms, renounced her position of the state courtesan after being influenced by the teachings of Buddha.
Actor Vinod Khanna, who has always been a follower of spiritual leaders like U G Krishnamurthy and Rajneesh, is excited at getting to play one in his upcoming movie. The actor will take the help of his spiritual background in getting into the skin of his character. The movie, which goes on the floors next month, is being directed by Atul Garg.
