Netaji's ideas were different, he was against…: Subash Chandra Bose's grand nephew on 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar' movie
Chandra Kumar Bose said that the movie 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar' should focus solely on Savarkar's personality without mentioning other freedom fighters.
He stressed that the film must do justice to Savarkar's personality and present the facts as they are, without distorting them.
Days after the teaser for the movie 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar' was released, Chandra Kumar Bose, grandnephew of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, said that the movie should focus solely on Savarkar's personality without mentioning Netaji, Bhagat Singh, or Khudiram Bose.
Noting that Savarkar's ideas were different, he added, as quoted by news agency ANI, "Savarkar's ideas were different, he embraced a Hindutva ideology. He was attached to Hindu Mahasabha. However, Netaji was against Hindu Mahasabha. He had a more inclusive and secular ideology. If the movie presents distorted facts, the nation's 140 crore people will go against him (Hooda)," Bose said.
He stressed makers and actors must present facts as they are. He added that no director has the right to distort facts.
"Interpretations can vary, but if basic facts are distorted then the entire history will change. It is the responsibility of directors and actors to present facts as they are. No filmmaker has the right to distort facts. We will appreciate it (film) if it showcases the real personality of Savarkar," he said.
Randeep Hooda released the teaser of 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar' on Sunday, where he portrays the role of the freedom fighter.
He later took to Twitter to say, "The most wanted Indian by the British. The inspiration behind revolutionaries like - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh & Khudiram Bose. Who was #VeerSavarkar? Watch his true story unfold! Presenting @RandeepHoodain & as #SwantantryaVeerSavarkar In Cinemas 2023"
His fans congratulated him for bringing the life of a revolutionary leader on the big screen.
