Discovery JEET, the eagerly awaited new entertainment channel from Discovery India with meaningful content spanning biopics, historicals, crime and comedy, is all set to showcase Swami Ramdev’s never seen before inspirational life journey starting February 12, 2018 every weekday at 8:30 pm.Swami Ramdev is popular across the length and breadth of the country and beyond but little is known about his background. Where did he come from? What are his origins? What was his journey? In this official biopic, shot on locations in Rajasthan, Haridwar and Mumbai, Discovery JEET will narrate the Swami Baba Ramdev’s life story, from his start as a poor farmer’s son to becoming a national icon. Co-Produced by Ajay Devgn FFlims and Watergate Production, Swami Ramdev’s life is symbolic of ‘Hai Mumkin’ attitude which forms the bedrock of Discovery JEET’s programming philosophy.
“Swami Ramdev’s life arc – with its many ups and downs – is an inspirational story of an individual winning against all odds, the exact thesis of Discovery JEET, launching Feb 12th,” said, Karan Bajaj, Sr. Vice President & General Manager – South Asia, Discovery Communications India. “Our writers’ team first met Swami Ramdev for a 1-hour show, and then we realized that his life cannot be captured in such a short series. The result is an epic bio pic spanning 85 episodes which we believe will capture the hearts and minds of our target audience across the country.”
