On the 138th birth anniversary of Vinayak Damodar Sawarkar, freedom fighter fighter Vinayak Damodar Sawarkar, on 28 May, producer Sandeep Singh announced that he would make a biopic of Veer Savarkar. The film will be titled ‘Swatantraveer Savarkar’ and will be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.

Sandeep Singh has shared the poster of the film on his Instagram account on May 28. He wrote with the poster, ‘The whole thing of the history of independence is yet to be known. Meet ‘Swatantraveer Savarkar; Sooner than ever. ‘ Sandeep Singh further wrote, ‘Veer Savarkar is praised and criticized equally. He is projected as a polarizing personality today, but I think it’s because people don’t know a lot about him. No one can deny that he was an important part of our freedom struggle and our endeavor is to bring his life and journey of his life to the audience. ‘

Sandeep said that while on the one hand many people respect Veer Savarkar for his role in the freedom struggle, some others criticize him for his role in the freedom struggle and beyond, as well as his philosophy of Hindutva. But there is a need to bring Vinayak Damodar Savarkar’s story to the public and inspired by this sentiment, we are going to produce this film.

Producer Amit B Wadhwani said, ‘I am happy that we are making a film that highlights the contribution of a freedom fighter. Veer Savarkar is an important part of Indian history that needs to be told. Unfortunately, because of his prejudiced attitude towards him, he has not got the right place in history.

Mahesh Manjrekar said, ‘I have always been attracted to Veer Savarkar’s life and his time. I believe that he is a person who has not got his rightful place in history and has not got the right. His life may have influenced many people. I know it will be a challenge for me as a director but I want to accept this challenge. ‘
