Netaji’s family says teaser of Savarkar’s film portrays a historical distortion

Kolkata: The family of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose has vehemently opposed the claims made in the teaser of the upcoming film 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar,' which suggests that Netaji and Bhagat Singh were influenced by Hindutva ideologue Veer Savarkar.

The family has categorically denied any historical basis for such assertions and expressed their disappointment over the distortion of facts in the film, featuring Randeep Hooda in the titular role.

Chandra Kumar Bose, the grandnephew of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, spoke out against the teaser, labelling it as an attempt to rewrite history and mislead future generations.

In an interview given to The Indian Express, Bangla, Chandra Kumar Bose said that the film is a distortion of history where the ideologies of Netaji and Savarkar were polar opposites.

Bose referred to Netaji's own writings, including his unfinished autobiography titled "Indians struggle," where he clearly expressed his scepticism about Savarkar and his political stance. He stated, "Nothing can be expected from Mr. Savarkar and Md. Ali Jinnah."

Moreover, Bose pointed out that Netaji's political leanings were shaped by the influence of Swami Vivekananda, his spiritual guru, and Deshbandhu Chittaranjan, his political mentor. He asserted that it was misleading to attribute Netaji's inspiration to Savarkar and stressed that both Bhagat Singh and Khudiram Bose, known revolutionaries in their own right, were far from being influenced by Savarkar's right-wing ideology.

The strong opposition from Netaji's family has raised concerns about the film's accuracy and its potential to misrepresent historical facts. Critics argue that it is crucial for filmmakers to adhere to historical authenticity while portraying renowned figures and their contributions to India's struggle for independence.

As the release of 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar' approaches in 2023, the controversy surrounding the film's claims is likely to intensify further. It remains to be seen how the filmmakers and the wider public respond to the concerns raised by Netaji's family and whether the historical accuracy of the film will be addressed in subsequent statements or modifications to the narrative.
