On the other hand, Randeep Hooda launched the teaser of his pet project ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ today. The significance of today’s day and date is that, it marks the 140th birth anniversary of the fearless revolutionary Swatantra Veer Savarkar.
Randeep Hooda launched the film’s trailer alongwith the film’s producers Anand Pandit and Sandeep Singh. Speaking on the film’s teaser launch, Randeep Hooda said, "Savarkar led an incredible life, and as I learned more about him while researching for my film, I have come to admire him tremendously. So it gives me immense pleasure to share a sneak peek into our film on his 140th birthday."
On the other hand, the film’s producer Anand Pandit said, “Savarkar’ is a very prestigious project for us because of the incredible impact that Veer Savarkar had on our nation's freedom struggle. His story, unfortunately, has not been told to us as a country and we hope our film will complete that lacune. We present the film's first look and hope the audience comes back asking for more."
Echoing his sentiments was the film’s producer Sandeep Singh, who said, "People the world over continue to misunderstand him. They wanted, and still want, him to apologise without knowing the reason. When I say that Veer Savarkar was truly a patriot, I mean it, and stand by it staunchly. Thus, for those who have misunderstood him need to watch our film for all factual information. History cannot be corrected and the events that have transpired in the past cannot be changed. I feel privileged and grateful to have got an opportunity to make a film on one of our greatest freedom fighters of his time."
While the film ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ stars Randeep Hooda in the titular role, there’s also Ankita Lokhande and Amit Sial in leading roles.
