My aim was to make a film that familiarizes the viewers with Udham Singh’s valour and inspires them.
This film is my ode to his lionhearted spirit, his fearlessness and his sacrifice in the fight for the country’s independence.
The entire team is extremely proud to have had an opportunity to work on bringing forward a story of a revolutionary who played a key role in India’s freedom struggle.”
