For the first time in the history of Indian Cinema, a trailer of Bollywood film, Raag Desh, has been launched in today in the presence of producer Gurdeep Singh Sappal, director Tigmanshu Dhulia, Mohit Marwah and Mr Rajesh Mishra, CEO of UFO Moviez.

Raag Desh is about the famous Red Fort trials which changed the course of India’s Azaadi Movement. The three officers who were court martialled were Prem Sehgal, Gurbaksh Dhillon and Shah Nawaz Khan for treason against British king.

The first trial, that of Shah Nawaz Khan, Gurubaksh Singh Dhillon and Prem Sahgal was held between November and December 1945 against the backdrop of general elections in India with the Attorney General of India, Noshirwan P. Engineer as the chief prosecutor and two dozen counsel for the defence, led by Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru. All three of the accused were charged with waging war against the king contrary to section 121 of the Indian Penal Code’. In addition, charges of murder were levelled against Dhillon and of abetment to murder against Khan and Sahgal. The defendants came from three different religions – one Hindu, one Sikh, and one Muslim – but all three elected to be defended by the defence committee set up by the Indian National Congress.

Raag Desh, is written and directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. The cast includes Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah, and is presented by Rajyasabha TV and produced by Gurdeep Singh Sappal. UFO Moviez are strategic partners and is slated to release on 28 July, 2017.
