Ekta Kapoor launched a number of web series on a platform called ALTBalaji. The content of the website ranges from funny, romantic, comedy to thriller and action. The Test Case, Dev DD, Class of 2017 and Bewafaa Si Wafaa are some of the shows that gained much popularity in a very less time.
Soon Ekta will be launching a web series on the life of freedom fighter and national figure Subhash Chandra Bose. She is all set to unravel the mystery about Bose that many people don’t know. This web series is titled as ‘Bose: Dead or Alive’. She revealed a short glimpse of the show on Instagram as “India biggest cover up revealing soon”. The first look of the web-series is out and it looks intriguing.
The national award winning director Hansal Mehta will be directing this web series. The role of Subhash Chandra Bose will be played by Rajkumar Rao. The director shared the first glimpse of the show and fans are very much excited to know what comes next. The trailer will be out on 18th August.
Rajkumar Rao is preparing himself up for the role. He has gone bald to give an authentic look. He has gained weight and will be learning Bengali for this web series. He will definitely add soul to the character.
Rajkumar Rao said, “I am feeling fortunate that I have got the chance to play him. In a way, I am really happy that people would know more about his life. There are so many instances about his life which left me surprised.”
He added, “I’m extremely excited to explore the unheard journey of Netaji on screen. It’s a great opportunity for me as an actor. I was totally blown away hearing his life story. He is one of the most mysterious and fascinating persons of our history and of course, we all know about his true love for the country and with Ekta and Synergy backing it I don’t have any doubts that our audience will get to witness something never seen before on Indian screen,”
“The unknown side of events, happenings and personalities has always intrigued me, I am drawn to these mysteries! Bose is such a strong character from our history and yet there is so much about him that we don’t know, and that hasn’t been told on any medium before. The unbounded mystery around him is so fascinating and that was my trigger to tell this side of his story on the digital platform. It is edgy, fast paced and it’s everything that you don’t expect it to be!”
