Exclusive: Rajkummar Rao And Hansal Mehta Open Up About Bose, Freedom Of Expression And Censorship!
Cinema and literature have always been the medium of expression. The maker or the author is always given liberty to speak his/her mind and say what is buried deep in their heart. While some document real life events and the lessons we would get from it, others are works of imagination.
But whenever a biography or a story on a living person has been attempted, it has always contributed to some controversy or the other. Take, for example, Padmavati. There have been reports of vandalism and hooliganism because of a 'rumour' about the film. Is that the reason that the reason why the makers of 'Bose: Dead or Alive' chose the web medium instead of making a full-fledged film?
Well, the trailers had created quite some buzz and it seems clear that the series will delve into some of the major controversial issues like whether the fact that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is dead was propagated to safeguard the position of Nehru as the Prime Minister, that he was very much alive after the plane crash, had connections with Hitler and even married a girl from Germany. Are the cast and the makers afraid that there might be major controversies?
Well, Rajkummar Rao, who will be playing Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, creative producer Hansal Mehta and Nandini aka Patralekha come together to clear the air. Hear them as they speak on why they chose the web to tell the story, whether they are thinking about the controversies it can generate and what they are thinking about creative freedom in India.
