The global premiere of Osho’s biopic ‘Rebellious Flower’ in Nairobi, Kenya, will be held on Tuesday, 8 March 2016, the UN International Women’s Day. This first international screening will be held at Sarit Centre Theatre at 6: 30 p. m. Around 230 seats of a total of 275 seats have been distributed in advance and a House Full is expected on Tuesday. Depending on the response, a second screening is planned.

A group of Osho lovers were so enthused after reading the review of this movie that their coordinator, Kirtan Saggar, contacted the director who put him in touch with the producer and an agreement was worked out to screen this movie depicting the life of Osho from his childhood until his enlightenment at the age of 21 years. The second part of this biopic goes on the sets this winter. The movie is in Hindi with English sub-titles.

A review of this movie by Swami Anand Kul Bhushan has been published by Asian Weekly, the leading media for Kenyan Indians. In addition, the movie premiere is being advertised on the local East FM radio station. Osho lovers have also promoted on the social media.

The screening is timed with the UN International Women’s Day as Osho was greatly influenced by his grandmother who was a strong woman and also fell in love with another young woman who died at an early age but he never forgot her. Osho has talked frequently about his grandmother in his discourses.

“A good response has come from Osho followers and also other friends who want to know more about Osho after reading him,” said Kirtan Saggar, the coordinator, “Excitement for the show is now building up.”
