Randeep Hooda is taking on a new avatar, that of director in a fascinating project. His directorial debut, titled Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, shines the light on an indomitable figure in India’s fight for freedom. The film brings to life the legendary yet neglected tale of Swatantrya Veer Savarkar – a visionary and a firebrand.
Randeep is not only taking the director’s chair, he is also playing the lead character. We have heard that Randeep’s portrayal promises to be a tour de force, showcasing his dedication to encapsulating the essence and fervor of this iconic freedom fighter, shedding light on the grit, passion, and complexity of a man obscured by history’s veils.
Randeep Hooda expressed, “After almost two years in Kalapani with Mr Savarkar, it’s finally time for him to step out to freedom. The journey has been tough, but it has made me go beyond myself as an actor into being a filmmaker and much more. It’s about time the country came to know about the contribution of the armed revolution in our freedom struggle. Mr Savarkar was always ahead of time and is today more relevant than ever before.”
Produced by Zee Studios, Anand Pandit, Randeep Hooda, Sandeep Singh & Yogesh Rahar. Co-produced by Roopa Pandit, Sam Khan, Anwar Ali, and Panchali Chakraborty.
