Randeep Hooda is one of Bollywood’s most versatile performers, proving time and time again that he can play any part. Now, the actor is going to take on yet another demanding role as Swatantra Veer Savarkar in a biography. The film was first revealed on Shaheed Diwas, and today, on the occasion of Swatantra Veer Savarkar’s birth anniversary, Randeep has released his first look from the film.
Sharing his first look on Instagram, Randeep wrote, “This is a salute to one of the tallest unsung heroes of India’s struggle for freedom and self-actualisation. I hope I can live up to the challenge of filling such big shoes of a true revolutionary and tell his real story which had been brushed under the carpet for so long..Wishing you all a very Happy #VeerSavarkarJayanti!”.
After viewing Randeep’s look in the film, fans are ecstatic. As one person put it, “Casting that is solid. It’s the ideal look. You shown your acting talent and dedication in Sarabjit. I’m confident you’ll do the same with Veer Savarkar’s biography.”
Earlier, Randeep shared the first glimpse of his look from the biopic. He wrote, “Kuch kahaniyaan batayi jaati hai aur kuch jee jaati hain! Grateful, excited and honoured to be part of #SwatantraVeerSavarkar’s biopic”.
Veer Savarkar was a politician, activist and writer and one of the foremost pioneers of the Hindu nationalist political ideology.
The biopic will be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, and it will be produced by Anand Pandit and Sandeep Singh. Randeep will collaborate with the producer Sandeep Singh for the second time. They have worked together in the critically acclaimed movie Sarabjit, starring Aishwarya Rai, Richa Chadda and Darshan Kumar.
