Bollywood has paid tribute to many unsung heroes on screen through their films. One such film to hit the screens soon is Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Raag Desh’.
The director is making sure that his film doesn’t get lost in the chaos of the big mammoth like releases. Thus, post launching the trailer in Parliament House, the film will be screened for the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee.
Speaking about this honour, the film’s producer Gurdeep Singh Sappal said that it was only appropriate that the first ever screening of Raag Desh (which has been produced by Rajya Sabha TV), be held for the President of India and that they were fortunate and grateful that the President granted their wish.
The president will watch the film on July 22. It is also said that the makers are planning to give the screening venue a 1940’s look for a better connect.
Besides the Indian President Pranab Mukherjee, the special screening will also be attended by Hamid Ansari (Vice President-India), Prof. P.J. Kurien (Deputy Chairman, Rajya Sabha), Arun Jaitley (Leader of the House- Rajya Sabha), and also Rajya Sabha’s prominent leaders.
“Raag Desh” is the story of the famous red fort trial of the Three INA officers that changed the course of India’s Azaadi Movement. The film is written and directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia.
The film scheduled to release on July 28, 2017 features Kunal Kapoor, Mohit Marwah and Amit Sadh in the lead.
