Kaveta spent months researching for the film and even while shooting, it was a revelation and rewriting of the scripts to bring to life the real episodes which created the legends.

Yog Yatra Poster 1Yog Yatra came to me with Acharya Balkrishnaji’s call for making a film on their institution, its foray of activities. I convinced them to expand the scope to including the vision behind Patanjali while including their activities. Then began my research in knowing Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna and revisiting their junctions in life…” says Kaveta Chaudhry.  ” The film showcases through the example of Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna that how by carving their own path & choosing to be who they are, both achieved global success!   The film also attempts to free us from the prevalent education system from marks orientation to an all round development that gives the strength to deal with different shades of life – with ease, joy and glory !”

Acharya Balkrishna shares ” We had seen Kaveta’s work during the making of a public service spot.  Also her past work profile resonates sensitivity combined with creative intuition which is very important in making a film of such nature.  When we look back, her passion and flair for story telling makes us glad she was a part of our journey forward.”
