New Delhi: The teaser of the upcoming film ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’, based on the life of VD Savarkar, was released on Sunday on the occasion of the 140th birth anniversary of the freedom fighter and Hindutva ideologue.

The film is directed by actor Randeep Hooda, who also wrote the film along with Utkarsh Naithani.

The teaser of the potentially controversial film opens with Randeep’s voiceover saying that the freedom struggle lasted for more than 90 years but would have ended if people had taken the path of armed revolution.

Very few people took part in the freedom struggle, the voiceover said; The rest only wanted to gain political advantage under the guise of the freedom struggle.

Launching the film’s teaser, Hooda said: “Savarkar lived a remarkable life, and as I learned more about him while researching my film, I came to admire him greatly. His 140th birth anniversary. ”

The teaser calls Savarkar “the most wanted Indian by the British”, who inspired not only the armed revolution but also the likes of “Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose and Khudiram Bose”.

Randeep further says in the teaser that Mahatma Gandhi was not wrong, but if he had not stuck to his principles of non-violence, India would have become independent 35 years earlier.

Producer Anand Pandit added: “Swatantra Veer Savarkar is a very prestigious project for us because of the tremendous impact Savarkar had on our country’s freedom struggle. His story, unfortunately, as a country We haven’t been told and we hope our film fills that gap. We present the first look of the film and hope the audience comes back asking for more.”

The historical film, which is slated to release this year, also marks the directorial debut of Randeep Hooda. She will also be seen on screen in the title role.
