Hey Bholenath – Film Based on Story of Vidyapathi and Shiva

Vidyapathi was an ardent devotee of Shiva. The story of Vidyapathi and his devotion for Shiva is the theme of a new film named Hey Bholenath. Film is directed by Santosh Badal and produced by Sanjay Rai and is scheduled to release in March 2013. It is said that Shiva who was impressed by Vidyapati’s devotion came and stayed with him as his servant. It is said that once when Vidyapati was going to a distant place, he fell down in a desert area. He wanted water and the servant brought water. While drinking the water, Vidyapati sensed it was special and such water could not be found in the desert area. Shiva then reveals himself before Vidyapathi.
