History cannot be corrected and the events that have transpired in the past cannot be changed. I feel privileged and grateful to have the opportunity to make a film on one of our greatest freedom fighters of his time."According to the film's producer, Anand Pandit, many of us came across the contributions of freedom fighters, Savarkar's ideologies and contributions have never been highlighted similarly.
