Chinmay Mandlekar talks about his film, GANDHI-GODSE: EK YUDH; Check Out Here!

Chinmay Mandlekar is one of the versatile actors who portrayed the role of Nathuram in the film, Gandhi-Godse: Ek Yudh and turned out to be the best performer. He recollected his meeting with Rajkumar Santoshi. He says, “Raj ji asked where I came from and what I have done previously. After about 15 minutes of our chat, he asked, ‘Will you do it?’ Seeing my surprised look, he said, ‘I’m making Gandhi-Godse, and I want you to play Nathuram Godse.”

Chinmay Mandlekar’s words in the film, Gandhi-Godse: Ek Yudh:-

Gandhi-Godse: Ek Yudh is a drama film starring Deepak Antani as Mahatma Gandhi. It offers a different reality where the leader meets Godse after enduring the assassination attempt. The film was to primarily roll in 2020 summer but was released in September of that year due to the pandemic. Santoshi is known to be meticulous about his research, especially when dealing with an intense subject that examines the ideological conflict between Gandhi and Godse.

Chinmay Mandlekar was recently seen in the film, The Kashmir Files in 2022. He says that while the script was their guiding light, adequate prep preceded the filming. He added, “There is a lot of debate [about the movie]. But the dialogues aren’t coming from Deepak ji or me. [Most of the dialogues used] have been said or written by Gandhi ji and Godse at some point in their lives. The main focus was to internalise those lines. For me, another reference point was Godse’s speech in court, which is now in the public domain. It is about an hour long and explains his psyche.”

At the trailer launch, Rajkumar Santoshi revealed that he lined the lead actors from interacting with them during the shoot to maintain their on-screen conflict. When asked about the director’s diktat, Mandlekar says, “That was only when Raj ji was around. Deepak ji is so sweet, you can’t be friends with him.”
