The Tamil-Telugu bilingual flick 1945 had courted controversies earlier, thanks to the indifferences cropped up between its director, producer and lead actor. The team has now come up with its Tamil trailer which was released by actor-filmmaker Sasikumar from his social media page.
The two-minute trailer has Rana Daggubati, who plays the lead in it, essaying the role of an ardent follower of Subhash Chandra Bose. Set in 1942, the trailer begins with Rana's voiceover about his character returning to India after completing studies in London. His life changes after he gets married to Anandhi, played by Regina Cassandra.
How he joins Indian National Army and fights against the Japanese troops, the British and Allied forces forms the rest of the story. On the other hand, Regina's character is depicted as someone who has an affiliation towards Mahatma Gandhi's ahimsa ideology.
