"Yugpurush-Mahatma ke Mahatma" highlights the spiritual bond between Gandhi and Shrimad Rajchandra and the transformation of Gandhi from an ordinary lawyer to a visionary global leader inspired by his guru's principles of truth and nonviolence. Gandhi, in turn, inspired many other global leaders to follow the path of universal truth, selflessness, peace and nonviolence in fostering positive political, economic and social change in the world.

It is directed by Rajesh Joshi and written by Uttam Gada with music by Sachin-Jigar.

The cast includes Parhasarthi Vaidya playing Rajchandra, with Pulkit Solanki playing the role of young Gandhi and Nilesh Joshi playing the older Gandhi.
