Since the teaser for Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, the upcoming biographical drama starring Randeep Hooda, was unveiled, it has courted controversy.

Anita Bose, the daughter of Netaji, and Subrata Roy, the grandnephew of Khudiram Bose, recently spoke out against the movie and charged that its creators were attempting to change history for their benefit.

Netaji had high respect for all other religions: Anita Bose Pfaff
The only thing Savarkar and Netaji may have had in common, as per Netaji’s daughter Anita Bose Pfaff was their religious beliefs. Netaji was a devoted and spiritual man. He was a dedicated Hindu, to put it another way. In addition, she told the news agency that he had high regard for all other religions.
“Similar to Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji was against religiously-based division. Let Netaji’s vision for India be shared by Sarvarkar’s supporters rather than using him to advance viewpoints that were unquestionably not his,” Pfaff said.
Subrata Roy: Never seen any references that claim Savarkar inspired other revolutionaries
Khudiram Bose’s grandnephew Subrata Roy said he had never seen any references in documents that the revolutionaries discovered motivation in Savarkar. Khudiram Bose was hanged at the age of 18, and Subrata Roy said he had never seen any reference to this.
“Khudiram Bose belonged to the secret revolutionary organization known as Anushilan Samiti. “Hemchandra Kanungo, Satyen Bose, and Aurobindo Ghosh were his main influences,” Roy said.
Savarkar’s ideology was entirely distinct from that of Netaji: Chandra Bose
Grandnephew of Netaji Chandra Bose claimed that Savarkar’s ideology was entirely distinct from that of Netaji and Saheed Bhagat Singh, who stood for a united secular India. He claimed that Savarkar’s desire for a Hindu Rashtra was similar to Jinnah’s call for a Muslim state.
“There is plenty of proof that Netaji opposed Savarkar in both his writings and speeches. Bose writes in his incomplete autobiography that the Muslim League and the Hindu Mahasabha were of no use to the Indian freedom movement. Furthermore, in numerous speeches, nothing is to be expected of Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Savarkar,” he stated.
