“His Acts were Based on Sleight of Hand”

Posted by eileenweed on December 19, 2020

A recent article regarding the maybe-soon-to-be-released move on the life of “Sathya Sai Baba” clarifies that his so-called miracles were “based on slight of hand”.

In a country that is often supportive of dubious ‘gurus’ and even has legally punished those who question certain spiritual and religious activities, it is heartening to see that mainstream media realises that Sathya Sai Baba faked his miracles!

Here is the article online:

Anup Jalota unveils new poster of his upcoming film ‘Satya Sai Baba’ featuring Jackie Shroff and Sudhir Dalvi

Ashwin Sheshware | December, 18 2020

Actor-singer Anup Jalota unveiled new poster of his upcoming film ‘Satya Sai Baba’ on social media on Thursday. Anup Jalota is playing role of Satya Sai Baba while Jackie Shroff is playing role of a police officer and Sudhir Dalvi is portraying role of Sai Baba of Shirdi in the film.

Sharing the poster of the film on his Instagram handle, Jalota wrote, “#SriSathyaSaiBaba #TheMovie #AnupJalota #BhajanSamrat #singercumactor #JackieShroff #music #singer”.

Sathya Sai Baba was an Indian guru and philanthropist, born into a Telugu – speaking Bhatraju family. At the age of fourteen he claimed that he was the reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba and left his home in order to serve the society and be an example to his followers.

Satya Sai Baba purported materialisations of vibhuti (holy ash) and other small objects such as rings, necklaces, and watches, along with reports of miraculous healings, resurrections, clairvoyance, bilocation, and alleged omnipotence and omniscience, were a source of both fame and controversy. His acts were based on sleight of hand though his devotees considered them signs of his divinity. He died in November 2011 at the age of 84.

‘Satya Sai Baba’ also stars Sadhika Randhawa, Govind Namdev, Arun Bakshi and Mushtaq Khan in key roles. It will be released in English, Hindi, Telugu and Marathi languages.

It is directed by Vicky Ranawat and produced by Balkrishan Srivastav, Ankita Srivastab, Nikita Srivastav and Subhash Sehgal. The film is scheduled to release on January 22, 2021.

Anup Jalota will also feature in Kesar Matharu directorial ‘Woh Meri Student Hai’ along with ‘Big Boss 12’ contestant Jasleen Matharu.

Will the ‘Sathya Sai Baba’ Movie Starring Anup Jalota Finally be Released??

Posted by eileenweed on December 14, 2020

Since 2011 we have been reporting on two planned mainstream movies about Sathya Sai Baba.

  1. ‘Baba Sathya Sai’
    Starring Dileep (later replaced by Sreejith Vijay with shooting in October 2016)
    Directed by Kodi Ramakrishna
    Produced by Karatam Rambabu
    (Movie Launch was held in October 2011; Movie was reportedly dropped July 2018.)
  2. ‘Sathya Sai Baba’
    Starring Anup Jalota
    Directed by Vicky Ranavath
    Produced by Balakrishnan Srivatsav
    (Announced in Feb 2012, filming in Puttaparthi in Feb 2013, Launch party in Sep 2014.)

The saga drags on as a new article appeared on 13 December 2020, stating that the film ‘Sathya Sai Baba’, which was filmed in 2013, will FINALLY be released in January 2021!

With films in India often being finished within months, we can only guess that the producers of these films of the discredited baba are wary of spending money to release such sure-to-be flop films. They will no doubt lose their investments, as the vast population of India makes fun of these shamed con-men ‘gurus’ and would certainly not waste their time and money to see movies glorifying them.

The trailer (see below) shows corny amateur ‘miracles’, stiff performances, scenes of real devotees lifted from decades ago, a fake looking wig on Jalota, and bad photography and lighting. It also tries to cash into Shirdi Sai Baba’s popularity by showing his form merge into Sathya Sai Baba.

Bhajan maestro and Padma Shri awardee Anup Jalota, who is a renowned name in the world of devotional music is all set to be part of producer Balkrishn Shrivastav and director Vicky Ranawat’s biopic Sathya Sai Baba. He will play the lead role of Satya Sai Baba in it. The film’s poster was recently released by the Governor of Maharashtra Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari.

Jalota has signed a few films in the past, too. He says the decision to take up movies dates back to when he was offered the role of Satya Sai Baba in Vicky Ranawat’s film, which also releases this year.

A source close to the production house said, “Anupji bears an uncannily, striking resemblance to Sai Baba. He also happens to be Sai Baba’s follower and has been closely associated with him for many years. It gives us an edge because Anupji is well-versed in Baba’s mannerisms and nuances. It helps us greatly because we can be as realistic as possible. He’s thrilled to be a part of the film and taking a keen interest in every aspect.”

Jalota, who has acted in many films before, is for the first time going to be part of a biopic. He said, “I am glad that I got an opportunity to play Sathya Sai Baba, because I have believed in his ideals and principles. I have also observed him closely and read a lot about him. It required great research and playing this character will be a challenge.”

From former President of the country Late Abdul Kalam Azad to superstar Rajnikanth,Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and God of Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar many people believed in him. The small village Putapurti, which did not have roads and infrastructure today has world-renowned hospitals, music and education centres and many other facilities for the common man.

The film will also feature Sadhika Randhawa, Jackie Shroff, Govind Namdev , Arun Bakshi, Mushtaq Khan in important roles. Sudhakar Sharma has written the lyrics, music composed by Bappi Lahiri. The film will release on Jan 22, 2021.

Fights Still Raging Over Possible New Districts in Anantapur

Posted by eileenweed on December 5, 2020

Already at least for a year and a half there have been occasionally articles about Anantapur District being split, and Penukonda, Hindupur and Puttaparthi all fighting over who gets to be the new bifurcation district.

The fact that Puttaparthi isn’t an obvious winner proves that the influence of the town, and of Sathya Sai Baba himself, has dwindled considerably!

Anantapur: The demand for bifurcation of the large district with 63 mandals had been decades old but the latest policy decision of the YSRCP to double the number of districts into 27 districts has given wings to the local people’s demand to bifurcate the district into Anantapur and Hindupur districts.

Despite the demand for bifurcation of the district, TDP as a party did not take any view on the same. But with YSRCP policy decision, new hope was kindled on this front. Until recently everyone thought Hindupur will be the automatic choice because of its proximity to Benguluru international airport but with the YSRCP storming to power and promising to make every Parliamentary constituency a district, Penukonda MLA and Minister for Roads and Buildings M Sankara Narayana and Puttaparthi MLA Sridhar are locking horns over the issue and are using their sphere of influences to convince the Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy by showcasing their strong points.

Penukonda Zilla Sadana Samithi and Sathya Sai Zilla Sadana Samithi had been formed in the two Assembly constituencies to agitate and demand and showcase their respective towns as prospective headquarters for the new district in the making. Penukonda committee has the support of Minister Sankara Narayana while the Sathya Sai Zilla committee has the support of local MLA Sridhar as well as Congress and other political parties.

Speaking to The Hans India, Puttaparthi MLA Sridhar said that he had made a strong case before the chief minister that Puttaparthi has many merits to be made as the new district headquarters. Puttaparthi is already an internationally famous town having an international airport and having the support of the strong Sathya Sai Trust.

It has buildings and other infrastructure with a beautiful landscape. So, we hope Puttaparthi will be zeroed in for building a new headquarter for the new district in the making, he added. When suggested that Minister Sankara Narayana seemed to be winning in his battle, Sridhar quipped ‘God is there.’

When Hindupur as the natural choice was making rounds, Minister Sankara Narayana floated the idea that Penukonda is the ideal town as it is in-between Hindupur and Puttaparthi. He first saw to it that Hindupur is deleted from the mind of the government on political grounds as the constituency always stood for the yellow party and that there is no point in promoting it as it will be politically suicidal for the YSRCP and so he propped up the demand that Penukonda, the ancient second capital of emperor Sri Krishnadeva Raya should be the new district headquarter.

The minister strategically was pulling all strings to realise his dream. Using his clout with the chief minister, he managed to divert the medical college proposed at Hindupur first to Penukonda. He gave an impression that after all medical colleges are set up only in district headquarters. With the emergence of Kia Motors in Penukonda, a new facelift was given to the town.

Hundreds of industries are now making a beeline to the region. Almost everyone now thinks that Penukonda not Puttaparthi will be the choice of the government. Real estate values are shooting up there. All said and done Penukonda is emerging as the new developing region.

No wonder Hindupur MLA N Balakrishna is maintaining a low profile knowing fully well that his writ no longer runs even in his own constituency. YSRCP sources say that it is a matter of 2-3 months when the new district be it Penukonda or Puttaparthi would come into being.

Sachin Tendulkar in Ignorance of Sathya Sai Baba’s Crimes

Posted by eileenweed on December 1, 2020

It is no secret that sai baba amassed a huge fortune, built on the backs of innocent and well-meaning devotees who were ignorant of his horrible crimes against humanity. Money and fame brings power, including the power that sai baba used for his own selfish interests, including to shut down investigations of murder inside the ashram on multiple occasions, cover up massive bribes, and sexually abuse numerous young men and boys.

Indian Cricketer legend Sachin Tendulkar is one of sai baba’s famous devotees who continues to worship sai baba and is either ignorant of or simply ignores his felony crimes.

Sachin recently posted something positive about sai baba on his Twitter page and though people were quick to point out how much of a conman sai baba was, others wanted to defend Sachin’s devotion.

Only if all of us with personal experience of sai baba’s crimes come together and tell the world without fear, we can help to stop other conman in their tracks, and make them afraid to behave badly! We all have to do our part!
