Randeep Hooda, one of the talent powerhouses in Bollywood is set to star in actor Mahesh Manjrekar’s directorial, a biopic based on the life of the politician and freedom fighter Veer Savarkar. The film, titled Swatantra Veer Savarkar, is expected to begin filming in June 2022.
The film will be shot in London, Maharashtra, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, among other places. It will be directed by Mahesh V. Manjrekar and will focus on India's liberation fight from a fresh perspective, according to the producers.
Randeep Hooda is overjoyed to have been cast in the role. The Kick (2014) actor stated in an interview, "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."
Randeep had this to say about the collaboration, "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 V. Manjrekar, who has been working on it for over a year, describes it as "an edgy cinematic narrative." "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," said the actor-filmmaker.
Swatantra Veer Savarkar is produced by Anand Pandit and Sandeep Singh.
