Victor Banerjee starrer The Answer is set to release theatrically in India. After traveling to many international film festivals and winning acclaim, the movie has found support on the home ground from none other than superstar Rajinikanth.
The film is based on the true story of an American, James Donald Walters (played by Leonidas Gulaptis) later christened as Swami Kriyananda and his encounter with spiritual master Paramhansa Yogananda in California, which resulted in his devotion to the guru and his teachings.
Now our own Thalaiva, Superstar Rajinikanth who recently saw the film in Chennai seemed happy with the makers for making an important film and spreading the message of spiritualism through the said film.
“The film is a moving tale of a guru shishya relationship. Picturised beautifully, it will surely resonate with the followers of Guru Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda.”
Not many know that the superstar, who has a legendary fan following and is known to be a guru to many actors, has been following Mahavatar Babaji, Paramhansa Yogananda and has been practicing Kriya Yoga for a long time.
Madhureeta Anand, who is the Worldwide Business Consultant on the film said:
“Rajini sir is so unassuming – as he is known to be. The way he readily agreed to see the film shows his stature not only as an ultimate superstar but also as a profound human being. We are very happy that we could show him the film.”
Paramhansa Yogananda authored the “Autobiography of A Yogi”, a book that changed lives of many influential people in the world. James Donald Walters also started his journey with this book that went onto transform his life. The film is a beautiful telling of the story of his journey to find happiness, contentment and spiritual fulfillment.
