Saint Dr MSG set the tone with a tweet this morning on an exciting update on #MSGLionHeart with a poser, Guess What? As the twitterati responded with gusto, the hashtag became viral in a matter of minutes. Finally and secretly, a select audience and the media were invited to the Trailer Launch of LionHeart, MSG-The Warrior, at the Mahi theatre in Sirsa.
This is the first film that casts him as a character and not as a Guru. An open announcement would have brought a deluge of crazed fans and hence matters were kept closely guarded.
Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan arrived looking quite dashing with an exciting hairdo, with his daughter and co-director Honeypreet , members of his family and cast and crew. The trailer was played to a thunderous applause and replayed on demand. In a nutshell, the trailer is a jaw dropping bombshell!

b) Romantic angle? MSG as an Indian James Bond avatar with a Love interest!?
The story is about medieval warrior who fought for the honor of his land and the respect of the womenfolk. The story travels centuries apart as he emerges in another role as a modern Indian equivalent of James Bond. But the best news is that there is a damsel playing his love interest opposite him. (The identity of the tall actress has been kept a secret) When the media asked him persistently on this, Dr MSG accepted and coolly replied that it was better to wait for the movie to see what emerges! That’s the coolest One.
There is a triple role essayed by Dr MSG, each one as varied as chalk from cheese, where he has used a separate voice for every character.

He cited the example of Ajay Devgan’s bold tweet and its fallout. Lauding Ajay Devgan for his courage, MSG said that Ajay has taken the right stand by bringing out the corruption. Citing an example, Dr MSG said that his first two films did quite well and the second was still running close to a year later. Dr MSG asked, “Let them keep their film running in theatres for one year. Don’t bother for their stars. Our stars are the audience and not the ratings. So many films rated sky high have not performed at the box office. Ajay Devgan has taken the right stand, if other people join hands, then critics will also improve.”
Society has embraced the ethos of new age, positive film making, he observed.
e) Baap Beti ki Jodi debuts with LionHeart
The credit line displays Baap Beti ki Jodi. Yes, this is a film directed by Dr MSG and his daughter HoneyPreet who is also doing a role. CharanPreet Insan, Dr MSG’s eldest daughter has also played an important role. Reminiscing the experience, Honeypreet said, “Having Papa around to contribute to every smallest detail kept me in the comfort zone throughout. He would not only remember his lines but also knew the lines of the other cast members by heart. And he has made the film a grand creative product.” Responding to that, Dr MSG said that having Honeypreet as a supremely committed co-director and having found Santosh Thudiyil as a capable and quick, Director of Photography, made things unbelievably fast.
