Swami as we all know is Ganesh Acharya's directorial debut with Juhi Chawla & Manoj Bajpai. Swami is a simple movie, which touches people's heart, but what touched Ganesh Acharyar's was the young boy Siddharth, who plays Juhi Chawla & Manoj Bajpai's son in the film. When Ganesh Acharya would explain the scene to siddharth, he would run to his mum and would ask her to explain the scene again to him, Ganesh Ji was moved by that part that no one is greater than the mother, so it is for Ganesh Acharya himself?
Ganesh Acharya?s film SWAMI is inspired from his days when he was growing up. In reel life characters played by Juhi 'A south Indian ' in the film and Manoj 'A Maharastrian' is actually in real life are his parents; his mother a south India who he worships, and father a Maharashtrian.
