The film is titled Swatantra Veer Savarkar and it will be directed by Antim director Mahesh Manjrekar and produced y Anand Pandit from Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Sandeep Singh and Sam Khan from Legend Studios and is co-produced by Roopa Pandit and Jay Pandya.
Talking about the film Randeep Hooda said, “There are many heroes that have played their part in getting us our Independence. However, not everyone has got their due. Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is the most misunderstood, debated and influential of these unsung heroes and his story must be told.”
He further said, “I am delighted to collaborate with Sandeep after ‘Sarabjit’, for ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’. It will be yet another challenging role to portray.”
The film’s director Mahesh Manjrekar also talked about his excitement about working on the film. He said, “This is the right time to tell the stories which we had ignored. ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ will be an edgy cinematic narrative that will force us to revisit our history. I have been wanting to collaborate with Sandeep Singh, and I am glad that we are doing this film together.”
Praising the acting of Randeep, producer Sandeep Singh says, “There are very few actors in India who can create magic with his talent, and Randeep is one amongst them. Considering Veer Savarkar as one of the most controversial characters from Indian history, I could only think of Randeep.” He continues, “Veer Savarkar’s contribution cannot be ignored, I wonder why our history books never mentioned Veer Savarkar?”
