The Bombay Talkies, the legendary film studio, is making a comeback to films with ‘Rashtraputra’, a film based on the life of freedom fighter Chandrashekhar Azad. The film releases on 2nd November through Bombay Talkies in the UK.
‘Rashtraputra’, written and directed by military school student and filmmaker Aazaad, is a film based on the life and thoughts of the greatest revolutionary Chandrashekhar Azad. The film shows Aazaad essaying the role of Chandrashekhar Azad along with various other film dignitaries including Aryan Vaidya, Achint Kaur, and Raza Murad. Bappi Lahiri, Mika Singh and Palak Mucchal have lent their beautiful voices to the film. With high voltage drama and entertainment values for the youth as well as the enlightened audience of twenty first century, the film also has a motivational message.
Lead actor Aazaad says, “Chandrashekhar Azad is a timeless cinematic creation. He is a daring and dynamic protagonist of all time. While his earlier movies had elements of nationalism, our film ‘Rashtraputra’ will showcase the reality, the lesser known facts of the revolutionary freedom fighter. Azad will always be the relevant hero of all times.”
‘Rashtraputra’ is produced by the iconic Bombay Talkies which was founded by Rajnarayan Dube in 1934 alongside theatrical personality Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani. In the past, Bombay Talkies has produced some of the commercially successful films such as ‘Jeevan Naiya’, ‘Ziddi’, ‘Kismet’ among many others.
