Multiple questions, but one player. Ma Anand Sheela, formerly the personal assistant of Bhagwan Rajneesh or Osho, will be the subject of an in-production Netflix documentary, produced by Dharmatic. This Netflix special will give a personal insight into the controversial figure who polarized opinion and found admirers and critics alike. Was she a reformer or did she deserve the incarceration she served? Who is the real Sheela, behind the layers built up for her followers and the public?
This documentary gives a peek into her life and personality, and promises to take the narrative beyond "tough titties". Along with revealing facets of her that have thus far never been seen, a highlight of the documentary is a candid conversation between Ma Anand Sheela and director/producer Karan Johar. In this no-holds-barred chat, Karan asks questions that have been on viewers’ minds, which have been answered by her, in quintessential Ma Anand Sheela style.
Check out the teaser below:
“Netflix has been a pioneer in bringing documentaries to Indian audiences and at Dharmatic, as we take a step towards producing newer formats, we're so pleased it starts with this. Wild Wild Country was a fascinating story and we’re excited to be producing a peek into the life and journey of the feisty Ma Anand Sheela. Non-fiction content is a dynamic space in India and we’re thrilled to be exploring it with a partner like Netflix,” says Apoorva Mehta, Chief Executive Officer, Dharmatic.
