Revealed: First Look of ALTBalaji’s Bose – Dead/Alive starring Rajkummar Rao
The combination of Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao has always been a deadly one, what with the duo coming out with much acclaimed movies like Shahid, Citylights and Aligarh to name a few. The duo comes together once again but on a completely different platform, i.e. ALTBalaji.
Titled “Bose-Dead/Alive”, the show is an unraveling of India’s biggest cover up, based on the life of one of the greatest National heroes, Subhash Chandra Bose. Rajkummar, an actor known for his sheer dedication and talent has given his blood, sweat and tears and the transformation is visible in this exclusive first look image.
Directed by Pulkit, the show has been created by Hansal Mehta. Speaking on the same, National Award-winning Mehta said, “The show is not another boring biography. It is the unveiling of India’s biggest cover ups. It is a fast paced, gripping tale on a man whose trajectory is one of the most fascinating stories ever. The web series is structured like a thriller, so while one will learn about his life, it will also leave you on the edge of the seat. Our intention is to portray Bose as a contemporary hero, a rebel who worked in different ways, thereby making him relevant and a part of today’s youth, and the best medium to do so was via ALTBalaji.”
Talking about the show Ekta Kapoor said, “Subhash Chandra Bose was one of the greatest freedom fighters of our country. His story is exciting, extra ordinary and one that deserves to be told with great pride. It may also be India’s biggest cover ups till date. His sudden disappearance still remains a mystery. After doing immense research into the life of Subhash Chandra Bose, we realized that this story needs to be showcased. Therefore, it was befitting for the same to be a part of ALTBalaji’s mobile platform. There is no better combination suited for this series other than Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao. The two bring out the best in each other and this de classified re telling of theBose tale is sure to exemplify the same.”
