Rajkummar Rao is continuously shooting for his upcoming projects including Omerta and Shimla Mirch. It’s a great opportunity for me as an actor. 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 actor said in a statement. “The unknown side of events, happenings and personalities has always intrigued me, I am drawn to these mysteries! “I’m extremely excited to explore the unheard journey of Netaji on screen. 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,” she said. I was totally blown away hearing his life story.
