Swatantra Veer Savarkar Biopic: Filmmaker and producer Sandip Singh has joined hands with popular actor and director Mahesh V Manjrekar to narrate the story ‘Swatantryaveer Savarkar’ of freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. Announcing it on the 138th birth anniversary of Savarkar, he said that he has acquired the right to present his story through the film.
Sandeep Singh, while announcing his film, said, “Along with the appreciation of Veer Savarkar, he is equally criticized. He is portrayed today as a polarizing personality, 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 effort is to bring his life and the journey of his life to the audience. ”

Mahesh V Manjrekar said, “I have always been fascinated about the life of Veer Savarkar and his time. I believe that he is a person who did not get his rightful place in history… he did not get his right. His life may have influenced many people. I know that as a director, it will be a challenge for me, but I want to accept this challenge. “
Swatantravir Savarkar will be shot in London, Andaman and Maharashtra. This film will give a new stance to the stories of Indian freedom struggle and history.
Veer Savarkar played an important role in India’s freedom struggle and was also a member of the Hindu Mahasabha. Fifty-five years after his death, he continues to evoke strong reactions on both sides of the political spectrum. Today, May 28 is the 138th birth anniversary of this great freedom fighter.
