After "MSG: The Messenger" and "MSG-2 The Messenger," Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is set to appear on the big screen again with "Online Gurukul." The recent buzz is the controversial spiritual leader will play six different roles in the upcoming flick.

"All my roles will be different. I will play a Guru in one role and a young boy in the other," the Press Trust of India quoted Gurmeet as saying while speaking to his followers in Sirsa. The film, "Online Gurukul," will be based on "Vedic concepts and shall galvanise the children and youth against terrorism in particular," he added.

Though critics panned Gurmeet's previous movies, the followers of the religious leader applauded both instalments of "MSG." In fact, he managed to bag a Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Awards this year.

The honour shocked everyone as the foundation that honoured actors like Manoj Bajpayee and Priyanka Chopra this year also chose to give honour Gurmeet for his films "MSG" and "MSG-2."

The religious leader has been in news ever since he made his entry into the film industry. He hit the headlines when the sequel of "MSG" created history as the poster of the film broke the Guinness World Record of "Baahubali."

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has a huge number of followers, who had once filed a case against "The Kapil Sharma Show" comedian Kiku Sharda for mimicking the religious leader on his previous show "Comedy Nights With Kapil."

Kiku was arrested despite apologising on Twitter. He was later released on bail after the Dera Sacha Sauda chief accepted his apology on Twitter. His arrest was criticised on social media by many celebrities and journalists.
