Yoga guru turned businessperson Baba Ramdev will be soon making his TV debut.

A television show based on the life of Ramdev is going to be produced by Ajay Devgn Film Productions and WaterGate Production.

The scripted biopic series ‘Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh’ will trace Ramdev's journey from a life of anonymity to a renowned yoga guru and business mogul.

Child actor Naman Jain will play the younger Ramdev in the show.

"There are huge expectations from this biopic series and we wanted to ensure that somebody who fits the bill perfectly gets to play the role of Ramkishan as the audience will, for the first time, get to know about the early days of Swami Ramdev.

"Naman Jain is hugely talented for his age and has delivered a captivating performance," Devgn said in a statement.

Namam said he is honoured to play the role and it was challenging for him.

"The task was not easy as Swami Ramdev faced multiple challenges as a child and it was important for me to understand the social tensions that prevailed in a small village. It was also a challenge for me to adopt his style and portray the character," said the National Award-winning actor.

The show will premiere on the soon-to-be-launched GEC channel Discovery Jeet.
