India needs film like ‘Gandhi vs Aazaad’: Director

Mumbai, Jan 10 (IANS) Abhay Kumar, who is set make his directorial debut with “Gandhi vs Aazaad”, says India desperately needs a film like this.

“I feel today’s youth, in fact India, desperately needs a film like ‘Gandhi vs Aazaad’. It’s a controversial film, but it also depicts some facts from Indian history. The world will see the other side of Gandhi which they have not seen yet,” Abhay told IANS.

Abhay, grandson of the Bombay Talkies studio founder Raj Narayan Dube, has decided to revive the banner with the anti-Gandhi film. Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar and Meena Kumari-starrer “Baadbaan” was the last film released by the studio in 1954.

He said the film was in its editing stage. “Almost 95 percent of the film is ready. I am planning to release it in February but let’s see.”

The historical drama will also see Abhay in the title role of revolutionary hero Chandra Shekhar ‘Azad’.
