Rangoon is my tribute to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose: Vishal Bhardwaj

Vishal Bhardwaj

The veteran director Vishal Bhardwaj has something to say about the period romance ‘Rangoon‘ once his film finally hit the theatres. He was seen talking about Indian National Army’s role in the freedom movement and is a tribute to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. “It is important to share this fact with the present generation. Netaji’s sacrifice should come to the mainstream.

The film is my humble tribute to the lesser known role played by the INA and Netaji in the form of a romance drama,” Bhardwaj said. He further said, “But the historical reference comes as the backdrop of a love story,” he said, adding “my intention is not to create controversy and I had gone to the INA museum and did research on the details to impart authentic look to the product.”

Video: Vishal Bhardwaj and Kangana Ranaut invite their filmmaker friends for a special screening of ‘Rangoon’. He said “‘Rangoon’, starring Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor, is essentially a love story in the backdrop of 1944 Moirang war when the INA first unfurled the tricolour.” He then added “It is essentially a love story in the backdrop of war and the main crux of the film is patriotic. The three main parts are fictional. I have mixed facts with fiction,” said the 51-year-old filmmaker, who was here for a special screening also attended by the family members of Netaji.
