Featured & Cover ZEE5 Global to Stream ‘Swatantrya Veer Savarkar’ on His 141st Birth Anniversary

Global, 21st May 2024: May 28th marks the 141st birth anniversary of one of India’s most influential revolutionaries, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar who played a crucial role in India’s struggle for independence against British rule. And on this day, ZEE5 Global, the world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content, is setting the stage for the world digital premiere of Swatantrya Veer Savarkar.

The biographical period drama promises an honest portrayal of Savarkar’s extraordinary life, shedding light on his relentless struggle against British colonial rule. Directed, co-written, and co-produced by the talented Randeep Hooda himself, the movie boasts an impressive cast led by Randeep Hooda in the titular role and Ankita Lokhande as his wife, Yamuna bai Savarkar. Audiences can stream Swatantrya Veer Savarkar starting May 28 exclusively on ZEE5 Global.

Swatantrya Veer Savarkar is an authentic biographical drama, chronicling the life journey of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, the most dreaded Indian revolutionary ever. He is one of India’s most influential yet controversial figures in the struggle for independence and yet very little is known or written about him in popular culture. He is infact the originator of ‘Hindutva’ and ‘Akhand Bharat’ and the inspiration behind great leaders and freedom fighters like Netaji, Bhagat Singh and Khudi Ram Bose. The film narrates Savarkar’s story solely from his perspective, fearlessly embracing his ideals and beliefs that were initially contentious but eventually found their way into the fabric of modern India.

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer at ZEE5 Global said, “With the world digital premiere of ‘Swatantrya Veer Savarkar,’ we at ZEE5 Global aim to highlight the life of one of India’s most influential yet controversial revolutionaries. This film is part of our ongoing effort to cater to distinct viewer preferences worldwide, providing content that resonates, educates, and inspires. We believe in the power of storytelling to celebrate unsung heroes and bring their remarkable legacies to a global audience.”

Randeep Hooda said, “I am really looking forward to the world digital premiere of Swantantrya Veer Savarkar on ZEE5 Global and what better day to pay a tribute to the most influential revolutionary of the Indian Armed Revolution than his 141st birth anniversary, 28th May. I must admit that I learnt a lot more about this inspiring hero after I started working on this project and I want to share this film with as many people as possible to counter the false narrative spread in popular culture to bury his legacy. It was an honour playing the life of this influential yet maligned revolutionary who has left such rich and inspiring legacy behind. I would urge every Indian to watch this film to know the hidden chapters of Indian History and decide for themselves if he was deservedly Veer or not.”

Ankita Lokhande said, “Portraying Yamuna bai, the wife of the legendary Veer Savarkar, was a truly fulfilling experience as an actor as this is a character unlike anything I have essayed before, and I feel truly honored to have brought her story to life. During filming, I had the opportunity to learn about Yamuna Bai, and I was blown away with the kind of strength and support she showed towards her husband. I learned so much being her. This role has definitely helped me to grow as an actress, and I hope to get more of such opportunities to portray such women on screen in my upcoming films as well. As an actor, it is a privilege to be a part of a project that entertains, educates and celebrates the unsung heroes of our history. It has been a humbling and an enriching journey, and I hope viewers will feel the same way after watching the film on ZEE5 Global”.
