Bringing back the era of World War II will be yet another film that is Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Raagdesh. The film, which is supposedly based on the infamous Red Fort trials that sparked an outrage, will go on floor in Mumbai by the end of June.
The film is based on the torturous trials of ten Indian National Army officers out of which first three, namely Colonel Prem Sahgal, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan were considered to be the most celebrated ones. Kunal Kapoor of Rang De Basanti fame and Fugly boy Mohit Marwah have been roped in as two leads in the film. The schedule of the film was supposed to kick start earlier this month in Dehradun but has now been shifted to the city which will start at Film City by the end of this month.
Revealing details was the MD of Tigmanshu’s company, Sujay Shankarawar, who stated that they are looking for yet one another leading man and since the film is based on 40s, the team too was required to do an extensive research on the same, hence the delay.
