Filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi Says, ‘I Was Scared If CBFC Will Pass ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh”

Filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi has said that his upcoming film Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh changed into okayed through the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) without a single change. He introduced that he was scared in advance that the board may not pass the movie at all.

Set in early publish-independence India of 1947-forty eight, the film showcases the ideological warfare between Nathuram Godse and Mahatma Gandhi. The movie will show Godse’s side of the argument, revealing his motives for shooting Gandhi.

Even in his film The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Rajkumar took an unpopular take on Gandhi. Reminded about it, the filmmaker advised Dainik Bhaskar in an interview, “Even here, my movie has a completely extraordinary take on Gandhi. I was clearly scared that the censor might not pass the film altogether. But, the censor (board) did not cut a single phrase.”

Chinmay Mandlekar and Deepak Antani play Nathuram Godse and Mahatma Gandhi, respectively. Rajkumar’s daughter Tanisha Santoshi is making her debut in his comeback movie.

Rajkumar set Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh right after the time when Godse shot Gandhi. However, in the movie, the chief of non-violent motion survives the assault. Gandhi later meets his attacker, Nathuram, in jail, and a fiery debate follows.

Music maestro AR Rahman composed the tune for the movie, which was produced by using Manila Santoshi. Gandhi Aur Godse Ek Yudh will launch in theatres on Republic Day, January 26.

Gandhi Aur Godse Ek Yudh is ready for a field office clash as Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan is released on the same day. Directed by Sidharth Anand, the movie also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. It could be the primary film offering, Shah Rukh, to hit theatres in 5 years. He became last visible in Anand L Rai’s Zero, which proved to be a box dudu.

The 2013 film Phata Poster Nikla Hero, starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’cruz was Rajkumar’s ultimate directorial mission. Next up, he has Mithun Chakraborty’s son Namish Chakroborty and Amrin Qureshi’s debut movie Bad Boy inside the pipeline.
