Randeep Hooda reveals he locked himself to prepare for Veer Savarkar biopic

Today, on February 26, popular Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda took to his Instagram handle and posted a series of photos on his social media account to honor the death anniversary of the late politician Veer Savarkar. In his post, he described how he locked himself up in jail for a while during the shooting to empathize with Savarkar's experience during his time in prison. 

Mentioning the same, he wrote, “Today is the punyatithi of one of the greatest sons of Bharat Mata. Leader, Fearless Freedom Fighter, Writer, Philosopher & Visionary #SawatantryaVeerSavarkar. A man whose towering intellect and fierce courage scared the British so much that they locked him in this 7 by 11 foot jail in Kalapani for two life times (50 years). During the recce on his biopic I tried to lock myself inside this cell to feel what he must have gone through. I couldn’t stay locked for even 20 minutes where he was locked for 11 years often in solitary confinement.”

Randeep further revealed that he envisioned the extraordinary resilience of Veer Savarkar, who endured the harshness and inhumane conditions of imprisonment yet succeeded in constructing and motivating the armed revolution. His determination and significant contributions are unmatched; therefore, for decades, the Anti-India factions persist in defaming him.
