"Its plot is completely different from 'PK' though it talks about godmen. It is not officially based on anyone. Our movie is about a bunch of out-of-work theatre artistes who turn to this business. I got the entire story from the newspaper headlines and what was happening on TV," Sharma said.
The film, which hits theatres next Friday, stars popular artistes like Hemant Pandey, Tiku Talsania, Brijendra Kala, Sanjay Mishra, Vrijesh Hirjee and Chandrachur Singh and has been produced by Pankaj Narayan and Apoorva Bajaj.
The 'Office Office' star said he enjoyed stepping into the shoes of a godman, who is assisted in his plots by a group, headed by Kala.
"The idea to make the film came from a real-life baba but we did not want to get into any controversy, so we changed the plot. I was initially getting threat mails but that did not deter us from doing this movie. I just stopped checking my mails and Facebook," Pandey said.

The actor said they have tried to convey an important message in the garb of entertainment.
