The trailer launch of the upcoming film “Raagdesh” will be taking place at Parliament here.
The film’s director Tigmanshu Dhulia says it is to honour the heroes of the Independence struggle.
“To launch the trailer of ‘Raagdesh’ in the Parliament honours the heroes of the Independence struggle. It is the first time that Parliament has allowed a trailer launch and that in itself is a big honour for our film,” Dhulia said in a statement.
The film based on the famous Indian National Army (INA) trials in Second World War era. The movie is produced by Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) and is one of the most anticipated films this year.
“Raag Desh” is a cinematic representation of the glorious but forgotten chapter of India’s contemporary history. It is a story of Indian National Army (INA) of Subhash Chandra Bose. It captures the euphoria of INA, its travails and struggles and brings on the cinema screens an untold story of the Indian freedom struggle.
“Raag Desh” is the story of three leading officers of the INA namely Colonel Prem Sehgal, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon, and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan, who were captured and imprisoned at the Lal Quila (Red Fort).
Talking about the film, Dhulia said: “The Red Fort trial is one of the most interesting and relevant part of our Independence history. And ‘Raagdesh’ is about that fascinating case.”
The film’s cast includes Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah. It is presented by Rajya Sabha TV and produced by Gurdeep Singh Sappal.
“Raagdesh” is slated to release on July 28.
