Mahesh Manjrekar to Direct the Biopic of Great Freedom Fighter Veer Savarkar
On the 138th birth anniversary of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, film producer Sandeep Singh has announced a biopic titled “Swatantra Veer Savarkar” on the life of this great freedom fighter. The biopic will be directed by filmmaker & actor Mahesh Manjrekar.
Talking about this new & interesting project Mahesh Manjrekar said, “I have forever been fascinated by the life and times of Veer Savarkar. I believe he is a man who didn’t get his due in history. The fact that he evokes such strong emotion points to a life that must have impacted so many. As a director, I know it’s going to be a challenge but one that I want to take on.”
The biopic will be produced under the banner of Sandeep Singh’s legend Global Studio. Sharing his thoughts on the upcoming movie, he stated “Veer Savarkar is revered and criticized in equal measure. He has been made into a polarising figure today but I feel that’s because people don’t know enough. No one can deny that he was an important part of our freedom struggle and our attempt is to present a peek into his life and journey.” Adding on further he said, “Swatantra Veer Savarkar promises to change the narrative of the Indian freedom struggle and history.”
The film will be shot in various locations across London, the Andamans & Maharashtra. The cast of the movie is however not disclosed yet!
