One of the biggest conspiracy theories in India – the disappearance and presumed death of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose – will be explored in ALT Balaji’s upcoming web series titled Bose Dead Or Alive.
The series stars Rajkummar Rao as the controversial freedom fighter whose defiant patriotism made him a hero in India. The series majorly revolves around the mystery surrounding the disappearance and presumed death of Bose in 1945. The show also follows Bose’s early days, his encounters with the British Raj and his subsequent acts of rebellion by leading the Indian National Army.
A trailer of the period-drama web series was launched in Mumbai on August 18th by the makers. Talking about playing Bose, actor Rajkummar shared:
“Bose is one of the most powerful and challenging parts that I have played till date. It was a huge responsibility but we took it as a challenge. We’re trying to push the envelope of web series in India [with Bose].”
The series backed by Ekta Kapoor’s ALT Balaji and produced by Hansal Mehta (Shahid, City Lights). In an earlier statement, Mehta stated that Bose Dead Or Alive “is not another boring biography. It is the unveiling of India’s biggest cover up. It is a fast-paced, gripping tale on a man whose trajectory is one of the most fascinating stories ever.”
The series is expected to release and stream on ALT Balaji this September. The makers are yet to reveal an official release date.
