Upcoming film ‘Raag Desh’ revolves around the Red Fort Trial of three officers — Prem Sahgal, Shah Nawaz Khan and Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon — from the Indian National Army. The disbanded force led by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
Mohit Marwah play the role of Prem Sahgal, Kunal Kapoor play the role of Shah Nawaz Khan and Amit Sadh play the role of Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon from the INA. The trio was tried for conspiring against the British.
Gurdeep Sappal, who’s the producer of the film is believes that the trial was part of the British conspiracy to humiliate Bose. He says, “They wanted to use these officers as examples for the other INA officials, but the trial united the factions that were at loggerheads. Political parties also protested together, which worked as a binding force for the nation.”
Tigmanshu says about the casting, “I wanted three boys with rugged looks and soldier-like bodies. In my head, Shah Nawaz is my Amitabh Bachchan, Gurbaksh, Dharmendra and Prem, Shashi Kapoor. I’ve cast my heroes keeping them in mind.”
