Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming venture Bose: Dead/ Alive, starring Rajkummar Rao in the titular role of freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose second trailer is out. It is every bit impressive and intriguing.
The trailer begins with Bose meeting Hitler and talking about “fake and real” people, an indirect hint at his own story. We also get to hear Bose shouting his famous slogan, “You give me blood, I’ll give you freedom”.
The fact that he had a German wife is also seen in the trailer, apart from many other things, only proving that this web-series is going to be an eye-opener and will unveil a chapter of history which has remained buried due to political and personal reasons.
Titled Bose-Dead/Alive, the show is an unraveling of India’s biggest cover up, based on the life of Subhash Chandra Bose. Rajkumar will be seen as Netaji in a new digital series. On the demand of the character, he has shaved the crown of his head to look convincing.
The web series is directed by Hansal Mehta and it is an attempt to bring alive the story of Bose to the current generation, says Hansal Mehta, who described him a “rockstar”.
